Q: Can I have access to your radio library ?
A: For most of it, yes, I can supply access however it will not include files where the artist has contacted me directly and requested the files not be passed around.
Q: Is this site running on an Amiga ? (And other services)
A: No. I unfortunately do not own any Amiga hardware at this time, everything is running from Linux or Windows based systems.
Q: Why “XPD” ?
A: When I got my first Amiga and learnt about “handles”, I chose “NightOwl” but after a few weeks discovered there was already a “NightOwl” elsewhere, so did not want to conflict. Just happened to be looking at a bookshelf at the time, and there was a novel called “XPD” by Len Deighton. Figured “Why not” – it stuck.
Q: Can you source me <insert filename here> for emulator system <name here> ?
A: Although I do have a large library of various ROM files etc for various systems, I’m of two minds when it comes to sharing them. Its taken me a long time to collect them, and not always via “legal” channels as it were. You can ask, but don’t be surprised if I decline your request.
Q: You declined my request – where else can I look ?
A: Check the Amiga page on my site.
Q: Where the bloody hell is “Whangaparaoa” and how do you pronounce it ?
A: Fong-a-para-o-a is a peninsula located approx 20mins North of Auckland City, New Zealand. Being on a peninsula, I am surrounded by water, which is awesome for swimming and fishing.
NME and other contributors to this site live in various other parts of New Zealand.
