Hello, 4,876 days later
« on: January 18, 2023, 02:17:48 PM »
I registered my account in 2009, then apparently had absolutely nothing to say for over 13 years.

Potted Amiga history: Started with the A500 Flights of Fantasy pack, peaked with an 060 A4000 with CV3D and stuff (sold back in 2002/2003), currently have my original A1200 (motherboard, in a tower with Mediator PCI) with an Apollo 1240 and Voodoo Banshee as well as a second-hand 1200 with A1200.net case and keycaps, hard membrane.

I am more interested in recreating "serious" computing of old over playing games.

Hello Ligurmatic
  Let me be the first to welcome you back!   There‚Äôre still a few of us old-timers hanging around.  If you've been lurking all these years then you know the drama and problems that still plague us. If not I will leave that as an exercise for the others to fill you in.

  Either way all I want to add is while we haven't yet achieved world domination were not completely out of the fight.  Exciting times to be an Amiga user!  More going on today than in 2009 by sure.  I always like to stay positive and think if we're the bottom the only place to go is up.
   
  Couldn't tell if you still use your system or just have it in storage but my only recommendation is protecting your system!  Anyone still using a 20+ year old Commodore should seriously think about getting their motherboards recapped, using a quality power supplies and connecting them to uninterruptible power supply.  Can't be too safe can we?

  There's still FUN to be had using our Amigas!!

A minor awkward silence...
