Fred Fish Passed away April 20, 2007
If you were an Amigan, Fred Fish was well known to you. Responsible for the definitive archive of Amiga Freeware, Fred was the Santa Claus of software, his disks containing a selection of everything available for the Amiga at the time. Fish Disks inspired many an Amigan to purchase a modem and log on for all night bbs downloads of the vast selection available. Thanks and Rest in Peace Fred.

Not to be confused with the other egg-centric Amiga 500 series of games, Codemaster's "Dizzy". Of course.
