X500 PLUS needs a name...
« on: April 02, 2012, 09:32:17 PM »
Hi,

I have been thinking long and hard and I'd like to change the name of my A500 inspired case...

X500 PLUS sounds too long and confusing, considering that there are the AmigaOne X1000 and the AmigaOne 500 so I'd like to ask the community to come up with a cool name.

Think '80s, computers in keyboards, not only Commodore stuff but Atari, BBC, Sinclair etc...retro but modern, it can house an x86 machine or a SAM, Natami, Raspberry pi etc...

Can you think of something short? Does it need a number, or will just a one word name suffice?

Let your creative juices flow! :)

Good question... :)

I have got a couple of things that need sorting out, including raising the last bit of money needed.

I would say 1-2 weeks. It all depends on the cash! As always.

Call it the Bad Wolf Box and Eric Schwartz can do a logo for you. Also, Doctor Who fans might giggle a little.

RetroCASE ? RetroKEYz ? RetroBOX ? Maybe not Box cause MS likely has a copyright ..

Wow.... I figured moobunny died a horrible death a long time ago.



Glad to see the Nine Hells of Amiga Land is still around. Is Atheist still "patrolling" there? ;)

Call it "The Moobunny."

What we\'re witnessing is the sad, lonely crowing of that last, doomed cock.

Moo Bunny is "anonymous" forum that is using as off-shoot spitting and rumors competition, where everything that seems that would be moderated in normal Amiga boards is put to the desk. Mostly wild accusations and heavy language.
