Yup... and so does this one... :(

Still I've found something new to complain about in that new AmigaOS.net thread so I'm happy now that I can complain that some of the things said there sux too... :D

Love the choice of music for the website though (that sux not).

Sorry! You need to login into Facebook for seeing this video (it's not on YouTube).

Anyway here are two similar from YouTube (even if the one on Facebook is funnier IMHO):

It's an app for entertaining cats!!!  :D

...so you can leave your "oooold" iPad 1 to your cat, and go buy the iPad 2... until 3 exit in stores!  :)

@Kesa

Yeah, but notice the price.  Apple is competitive in price on the tablets.  This is something the haters don't want to admit.

I've found the actual holy grail.
I've managed to use a emulator to run this Color Computer 3 demo.

Ooh! Bouncy, bouncy colored ball.

And all I needed was 1000 times the CPU speed to run this 1.79Mhz computer's demo.

Damn, Coco3, now that brings back some memories. Only had a(n expanded) coco1 myself, but I used to love it when my older brothers mate would stay the night and bring over his coco3. Gantelet2 was bloody cool . Not too far removed from Amiga/ST Gauntelet2. Great 8bit machine.

Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.
