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 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.
