    02 April 2006 - Special Request - Mike Leavitt Fund
   Mike Leavitt is a well known name in the Amiga community, and he has
   had some devastating happenings - he has lost almost everything in a
   house fire, including some Amiga gear :(  Mike has been very helpful
   to a lot of Amiga folks, so this is our opportunity to give something
   back.  Chris Seward, who is the owner of the 'Just Amiga Yahoo! group'
   has set up a donation fund drive to help our fellow Amigan out, so we
   are hoping lots of you will visit the Mike Leavitt Fund Site and make
   a donation by paypal. Every $1.00 counts. Please note, the main page of
   www.sendusamillion.com has 'nothing' to do with the Mike Leavitt Fund.
   You 'do' have to go to the sub-page of /ml/. Donations for the first
   deadline are being accepted until Thursday April 13, 2006 - Thankyou !!

    02 April 2006 - Looking for Amiga OS4 users !!
   There has been a problem running antivirus programs with the AmigaOS4.
   Jan Andersen has been in contact with Georg Horemann (VirusZ and
   XVS.library programmer), and the problems may be due to XVS. When a
   fix comes in, it would need to run properly on an OS4 system.
   Request: If there are any Amiga OS4 users that are willing to use the
   new xvs.library (when available), could you
   a) go over to the VHT Forums and signup for a membername
   b) kindly do a post (ie. saying you use OS4) here:
      Problems with OS4 and antivirus programs
   c) do your settings on the VHT Forum to keep track of that topic,
      then you will get an automatic e-mail when there is a new posting
      to the topic
   You could also signin and post any problems you already have or maybe
   a solution you have already found.
