10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast
« on: August 29, 2018, 05:57:11 AM »
Hello, everyone!
I just wanted to announce that my new Amiga series, 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast (10MARC) is up and available on my website www.10marc.com and on YouTube at https://youtu.be/ar5WUsKKvrw

In the series I am covering all things Amiga related, with an emphasis on using our equipment in today's world. I tried to keep each video at around 10 minutes because I'm also making these videos available for viewing on just about any Amiga with a hard drive. I have the video casts available in mpeg1 which the Amiga with moderate expandability can handle pretty well, and also in a unique ham 6 and ham 8 video mode. These modes can even play back full screen video on an Amiga 500 or 600 with a reasonably good hard drive.
Episodes 1 & 2 are already up and episode 3 should be available this weekend. Please check out my channel and web page and keep the Amiga Community growing strong!
Thanks!
Dynamic Computing

Hi!

Just discovered your series on YouTube and watched episode 3. :) Great stuff! Was cool to see all that hardware you've got. Looking forward to see more videos in the future. :) Made a post about it on my blog as well, so hope it'll help spread the word. ;) https://oldschoolgameblog.com/2018/09/02/10-minute-amiga-retro-cast-episode-3-taking-stock/

Episode Four is now published - And it is all about the Individual Computers Rapid Road USB Adapter. Please check it out!

This episode is broken into two parts - 10 minutes was just not enough to cover the review of the Individual Computers Rapid Road USB Adapter. I cover the pros and cons of this wonderful unit and try to clear up some misconceptions about it. Please take a look at both Part one and Part two of this video.

Don't forget all my previous videos are available on http://www.10marc.com , and those videos can be downloaded and viewed right on your Amiga.

10MARC Episode 4 - Part One - https://youtu.be/cA4_szGXxRM

10MARC Episode 4 - Part Two - https://youtu.be/6Lq-5T-tnSU

Next week I think I am going to cover the new "Worthy" game - I am having a blast playing that!

10 Minute Amiga Retrocast Episode 5 is up now! In the episode, titles "The 15 Khz Conundrum", I cover some of the current options for connecting our beloved Amiga's to real 15Khz monitors available today.
I also have the wrong website listed in the video. It is supposed to be http://15khz.wikidot.com

Check out the Youtube video at https://youtu.be/0-htHsT-ZcM

I will have the MPEG1 version and HAM6 Version on www.10marc.com soon. I corrected the website error in those versions.

10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast version 6 is up now. In this episode, I am covering the Digital creations DCTV Slow Scan digitizer. That thing is great! It is a bit long (24 minutes), but I had a lot to cover. I think I would occasionally prefer to do one double sized video instead of two  smaller videos like I did with the Rapid Road review. Any preferences?

I will have the MPEG1 video uploaded to Aminet soon, but I may pass this week on the HAM6 and HAM8 videos - with a video this size, they would be larger than a Gig...

Anyway, enjoy the video and share it with your friends!

10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast Episode 7 is up! All about the A2200
« Reply #7 on: October 08, 2018, 02:47:17 AM »
Hey all! This weeks episode is all about my A2200 motherboard - that rare board the Commodore was almost ready to release back in '92 or so. I have one of a handful of the original boards, and this week I am covering the hardware side of things on this board. In the coming weeks, I will (hopefully) bring it back to life!

Take a look at the video here - https://youtu.be/6UO8qxPBb8o

And don't forget to subscribe. I am trying to reach 100 subs so I can give my channel a real name!

All of my old videos formatted for playback on the Amiga are available at http://www.10marc.com

Thanks!

Episode 8 of "10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast" is up now on YouTube - This week I am covering Amiga OS 3.1.4 and some of the interesting stumbling blocks I had with it, and how they were overcome. I also delve into "Best Workbench 1.0", which is a supplement to Amiga OS 3.1.4 that adds some great features! Check it out!

Episode 9 of 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast is now up on YouTube! This week I am talking about connecting our Amiga's to the Internet - how to do it and what to use! Also of interest - I am starting a new series all about the Commodore 8 bit machines called "The ChickenHead Chronicles" - The Intro episode is also on my page, and Episode one should be up on Monday.

a good reference book is "Connect your Amiga!" by Dale L Larson. It covers LANs, SANA-II, Ethernet, TCP/IP and how to configure Various Cards.

A new epsisode of "10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast" is up - This week I swap out my beloved Warp Engine for a 68060 modified A3640 card so I can send out the Warp Engine for an upgrade of its own, and I swap over to IDE drives and we run the AmigaOS 3.9 > 3.14 Upgrade scripts! Check it out!

Episode 11 of "10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast" is actually less than 10 minutes! Will wonders never cease! This week I provided commentary (possibly a small rant) on the current legal struggles of the copyright owners of Amiga software. Sigh... almost 30 years later and still bickering... Anyway, take a look at the new video!

Nice video as always. I too will buy 3.1.4 when the crap is sorted out and one can buy the roms without needing to burn them your self.
