What is the source of the .YM music file you are listening ? If I remember well, it was in one of the french disc zine MBM (Métro Boulot Micro = Underground Work Computing) where you could see a duck smoking. I miss this MBM issue (I have only MBM 6, 7, 10), if you have some other MBM issues thanks to send them as .DSK to me.

New link added, go to AndyC's Website for the Clinically Insane which is about CPC+ and the coming Jet Set Willy Plus for CPC+.


Not really about Amstrad computers, go to Gibson Research Corporation then click on Click Here next to the pictures Shields Up and you will be able to know if your computer is secure or not. You might know for example that your computer has a trojan which opens some TCP ports. I discovered that win98 showed to everyone who could use a port scanner my netbios shares, not a good thing to do. Happily, my internet computer is now 99% of the time under linux which doesn't suffer this problem.
