link has been bought by someone. Here’s how it looks like now.

Burning .cue on linux is best done with ImgBurn for CD-32. Lowest burn speed is recommended but my new burners don’t go any lower than x10. Worked fine.

AHX (Abyss’ Highest eXperience) format. True chiptunes, like SIDs on the C64. Whereas MOD bundled samples and had fewer commands, these work with fundamental waveforms and lots of great music. There are players available for many platforms including Win, Lin, Mac, AmigaOS, BEOS: link
