The Official A-Max Web Pages...

There is a LOT of stuff in these local pages - I have attempted to make
this site one-stop shopping site for A-Max users.  The User Page is for
want ads or questions to other A-Max users.  Come on in, look around,
and join in, and please share any A-Max knowledge or experience you have...

If you are looking for files, go to the TOOLS page.  If you are looking
for help, go the HELP, TEST, and HISTORY pages.  If you want to know
about your version & other versions' features, go to the HISTORY page.
To learn cool stuff, look at them all!!!

The user page is for user to user help, buying & selling used A-Max
products, and questions to all A-Max users.  Please visit the USER
page every time you stop by.  I have tried to make it easy to see
if anything has changed.

    Please note the e-mail changes below... I inquired about any possible legal implications in making the software freely available to the Amiga community, which turned out to be a successful endeavor. Now I just need to get down to the basement & get some files transferred off My Amiga & uploaded to the webspace, & create a FILES page...

    Upgrades:files are renamed as ZIP to fool the server. Rename them to .DMS and use diskmasher to unpack them.
