I started World Cup -project in 1996 partly because I wasn't able to get my hands on any soccer-related
cd-roms available for Amiga. On a different view, I have read lots and lots of World Cup books
and practically every book has more or less different statistics. So my aim is still to make this guide
a perfect statistic package.
It's hard and probably impossible to create such a thing but the show still goes on.
Nowadays I use WinUAE on a Vista-based PC to maintain these guides.
Guides are typed using CygnusEd and then converted into HTML with GuideML (by Unsatisfactory Software).
And then with Filezilla transferred to my homepage.
Of course I still use my several Amigas (and C64's, C128's, Vic-20's) for other purposes.
Amiga-SWOS and C64-Emlyn Hughes still beat hands down modernday footballgames, I think.
