UPDATE: IRC Coverage of Amiwest Show from Team Amiga

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

From Friday July 10th until Sunday July 12th, Team AMIGA will produce a live NEWS FEED to several IRC Nets around the world. The purpose of this NEWS FEED is to give Amiga users everywhere an opportunity to see live what is happening at AmiWest.

Team AMIGA reporters will be inside every seminar and class given at AmiWest (including ICOA Developer Meetings) as well as on the show floor, making sure that you at home know what is happening at AmiWest98! We will also have some guests stop by for a chat or two!

Reporting to you will be: Asha Develder, Casey Halverson, Alan Crandall, Gary Peake, and a couple of surprise guests and reporters too!

Our WEB CAM will be focused on the action right from the seminar room!

To view Web Cam Pics, we suggest grabbing a copy of "WebTV" from Aminet or from http://www.thule.no/

The following channels on all listed nets will recieve the Team AMIGA Live News Feed:

#AMIWESTTA ...  This will be the main News Feed Channel on all servers
                #AMIWESTTA will be VOICE ONLY for AmiWest reporters so
                they can present a coherent news package to you.


#AMIWESTTA2 ... Will be for general chatter and where IRC ops will be
                to /msg any questions you may have to our AmiWest
                reporters and guests. New users on any net will
