Title: Who is Cloanto?
Post by: LoveThatAmigaC64NESAtari on June 30, 2019, 02:36:56 PM
About 15-16 years ago I remember reading on...what may have been  a British forum, that this guy named Cloanto who was selling kickstarts. He wanted to go bigger so he was asking for donations to recover an old hard drive that was broken with the Forever package. Some guy living in at home with his parents.
Is that the same Cloanto that has a place at 101 Convention Center Dr Ste 700 Las Vegas, NV 89109?

Sorry if I am sounding negative, just curious. I always wondered what happened to that guy.

First off, Cloanto is the name of an Italian company.  Secondly the address you gave is CA Acquisition.  Thirdly, both companies are owned by the same guy.

Cloanto is one of about 83 companies that claim to own the rights to the Amiga. All of the rights.

OK, thanks for the replies. It wasn't that funny of a posting, no bait or trolling for that matter but I do see some of the snickering little girls came out. I appreciate the SamuraiCow for at least letting me know that first of all it is a name of an italian company and secondly it 'is CA Acquisition' and AdvanvedJehovaFollower for his description. All we need now is ''Yssing'' to come and say something nasty. I say, cuckoo, cuckoo!
Admin, just go ahead and delete my profile, this forum is not worth my time.

Glad that you got your answers. No corners to Cloanto and Mike Battilana as far as I can see. Check out this interview if you really want to know more and are not just stirring:

There's a Hyperion interview to follow from Stephen Jones at some point!
