Hi

Going forward in the future, I am resolved to restore Amiga subjects firmly as the main topics of discussion of this website, so no more off topic subjects in the main forums. Looking at other websites such as English Amiga Board and A1k.org, the emphasis is on good quality discussion about all things Amiga which is very much what this board used to be like 10 years ago.  Amiga.org can become a vibrant, interesting community where users from all flavours of Amiga can call their internet home.

It's a Kiwi website "fush n chops" and "sex" for six all the way.

Can we get rid of the immortality, electric cars and quantum computing sections in the coffee house?


Yes, please! If someone wants to talk about those things, great, but let's just have those discussions live in the science/tech and general Coffee House sections where they belong.

Don't mind that at all.  Can we also go forward into the past?  That would be cool.  Tweak a few things on the Gray's Computing Almanac of 1987.

I feel a little twinge of excitement.

Where's that AmiKit post again I might just give that a try.
You know with Windows 8.1 (gasps) you could set up a start screen that looks like an Amiga Workbench with "Metro" Icons to fire up your WinUAE configs for your fav Amiga.  Make Win 8.1 look like an Amiga Kiosk.

BTW, Like the ship jokes, have the mods figured out the title mistake yet.  Yes they have.

A little stereo typical. ;-) We don't really talk about like that, most of the time we seem to get mistaken for being british which is odd.

However we have a local joke where Aussies say "sex" instead of "six" :-P

And in Sweden "sex" is the real word for six and also the word for sex :P

It's a vowel thing.  The nuances of the vowel pronunciations (sounding) are learnt at a young age. Neither is right or wrong, just different.  Australian's (most) don't actually use the vowel soundings they learn as kids we "lazy tongue" them. "er" becomes "ah" at the end of words and the sounding for "i" changes based on what consonants it's between. eg: Hit(short i) a Six(ie sound).
I think I read somewhere that the NZ pronunciation of vowels was closer to 17th century English than English actually is now.  Dunno if it's true.
I certainly find it harder understanding the drawl from Nth QLD and NT than Kiwi. Ayee.(kiwi) or Ayee Mayte (Aussie)  :)

Well this is certainly interesting news on a Thursday morning... how about we replace Amiga.org entirely with AmigaOS.net, ditch the current forum with something which is mobile-responsive and change the 'Community' link at the top to simply enter the new forum.
