A big task on my ToDo list for this website is to move it to HTTPS. If you have already tried to use HTTPS, you might have seen that the site already uses a valid certificate but the WordPress installation still uses insecure locations to load data. I will start this evening to move WordPress itself to HTTPS and there might be some problems with older content on this site. Hopefully the page will be normally working until next week (well – or this evening again, of course ;-)), so if you experience any problems, please use the comments or the contact form and help me to get them fixed.

[UPDATE: The website is using HTTPS now. If you are trying to use HTTP you will be automatically forwarded to the HTTPS version of the website. During the update process I had to remove the CPC Toplist, because the CPC-Live website uses a non valid self issued certificate (it expired), which would cause security warnings in your browser. During the next days, I will try to check most of the pages to prevent loading content from non secured pages :-). Hopefully the RSS feed readers will still work…]

My best wishes to you for the year 2017 and hopefully we see another thrilling year like 2016. If we look back at 2016, we saw an awesome amount of new productions, hardware and a lot of new people joining the Amstrad CPC community. So a big thank you to all the authors who dedicate their spare free time to the development of new retro games, utilities, etc. and a big thank you to all the other people who are discussing, produce videos and dedicating their free time to their hobby as well.
As you might have noticed, in 2016 I have changed the way, how I write the news on this page and try to continously provide you with news instead of writing 3 news a day (ok, let’s not look backward at yesterday – that was my own firework on this page ;-)). This was a success so I will keep this system. Another thing, what I want to change is to use SSL for my website. Currently I am investigating how much effort is necessary to change the whole website to SSL.
Finally, if you are an author and your awesome work is not mentioned here, then don’t hesitate to use the contact form and submit it here. I am always happy about any submission I can get for the news :-).

Finally – again – a happy new year 2017 and my best wishes for you and your families! Maybe we see us on an event like the Revision, the Evoke or the XzentriX :-)!

Sometimes sad things happen and it is hard to write about it. This sunday our friend and CPC community member Nilquader of SPRING died after a long fight against cancer. It was always great to talk to him about CPC hardware or electronics and meet him on several meetings over the last years, where I also had the pleasure to work with him on the Verilog ACID protection chip implementation. He was always very helpful, motivating and productive, so we will miss him a lot for sure. Life can be unfair…
