Intangible Assets Manufacturing Announces DiskSalv 4
Drexel Hill, PA (May, 1996) Intangible Assets Manufacturing announced the
release of DiskSalv 4, the end result of an internal overhaul of the
program by the author, Dave Haynie.
While few external features have been changed, it has been reworked to fix
even more disk problems and to more easily support more filesystems. The
utility still supports disk recovery for hard, floppy, and removable media.
Other highlights of the program remain such as salvage, undelete, repair,
unformat, check, and cleanup. Freely redistributable patch updates for
DiskSalv 4 will be available in the future, as there was for version 3.
(In fact, patch 1 is already available for anonymous FTP from
DiskSalv4 is priced at US$40, and upgrades from DiskSalv3 are available for
$10 plus shipping and handling.

A Guide to the Internet, LANs, BBSs, and Online Services
Drexel Hill, PA (May 24, 1996) Intangible Assets Manufacturing announces
the second printing of its best selling book, Connect Your Amiga! A Guide
to the Internet, LANs, BBSs, and Online Services, by Dale L. Larson.
The book is revised and updated to include more about the World Wide Web
and how to get access to the Internet from the Amiga. It also provides
coverage of using the Amiga to access BBS systems and other online
services. For owners of more than one computer, the book explains how
Amigas can share files and printers with each other on a network, and how
Amigas can connect to PCs, Macs and other computers on a network.
The author is an expert on the Amiga and on computer networking. Mr.
Larson was a Software Engineer in Commodore's Amiga Networking Group. He
worked on AS225 and is one of the principal authors of both the SANA-II
Network Device Driver Specification and the original Amiga Envoy
Despite rising printing costs, IAM kept the list price of the book to
$24.95. For users who face the chicken-and-egg problem of not being able
to get the software to get started with communications, networks and the
Internet, IAM also offers an eight-disk set of freely redistributable
software. That set is available seperately for US$27, or with the book for
a package price of only $49.95. All prices are exclusive of shipping and
The revised book is already at the printer, and IAM will begin shipping to
customers the week of June 10. We are accepting advance orders now.
