>INTRO : Amiga viruses began to be know since 1987 with the SCA Virus ,
after that differents and various in the code Viruses appeared all over the globe.
They were able to be resident in the Amiga RAM and be resilient after a simple reboot.
If the All 3 1⁄2-inch disk had the rectangular hole in the corner obstructed then write was enabled to the disk and the Viruses had great times of fun infecting them with a copy of themselves . Most of their goals was to put on highlight a state of mind sentence ,
either political or social , or just an exaltation of the virus writer .
It’s important today , after two decades , to collect them and preserve them ,
they are part of human knowledge and a very limited and fragile part of it .
So Visit and help The Amiga Virus Encyclopedia , a very wealth website in this matter .
Minimig started in secrecy around January 2005 as a proof of concept by Dutch electrical engineer Dennis van Weeren. He intended Minimig as the answer to the ongoing discussions within the Amiga community on implementing the Amiga custom chipset using an FPGA. The project’s source code and schematics were released under version 3 of the GNU General Public Licence on 25 July 2007.
The original Minimig prototype is based on the Xilinx Spartan-3 Starter Kit, the Original Amiga Chipset is synthesized in the FPGA. Two printed circuit boards are attached via the FPGA kit expansion ports. The first one holds a 3.3V Motorola 68000 type CPU. The second has a MultiMediaCard slot with a small PIC microcontroller acting as a disc controller that supports the FAT16 filesystem and does on-the-fly Amiga disk file (ADF) decoding.
