Perhaps, but i think you hosted meetings a few years ago and I and Paul Sadlik attended.

I'm looking for someone to recap my capacitors, and would pay them.

We had a few up at Bigbronc's house.  Good times, seems like a million years ago, now.  :(

Not sure if anyone local does this.  Maybe blakespot could recommend someone?

Sorry for dropping out. I had some medical problems that laid me up for quite a while, but I am back. I can't offer a meeting spot now (this place is to small), BUT, if Annapolis MD is central enough, I can get a local library for us.
I'll keep an eye on this thread, to see what's going on.......

I can offer a meeting place, but I'm located in Middletown, MD.  So, I'd assume that it'd be too far out for most.

I can host anytime you guys want to. I have fixed all issues with my A2000,s and even fixed the PAR recording stuff. I too live in Middletown MD. so at least two have a short drive. I would love to have another meeting. so check your calendars and lets keep it going.

Hey all,

I’m located in northern Baltimore county. Interested if there is a get together. Got lots of classic stuff I could bring, (like a complete Amiga Live! Setup) but also a brand new X5000 I should have in a week or two if anyone is interested in the new stuff.

What is Amiga live? I have cleared my garage and have at least two folding tables. I can set up a complete toaster with several cameras. I also have blank disk, let's do a disk swap. I would like to get some tools like sys info, X copy, any demos, or art work. I have things to trade. Let's go for the end of September and make it a Saturday or Sunday. I have a lot of Amiga stuff and live in a Amiga vacuum so any activity sounds great to me.

I'm going to be out of town Sept. 22-25, but could do most other weekends.  :)

I can't drive these days (eye problems), so unless someone comes through the Annapolis area that I could get a ride with, I'm sunk.

haha...  I just popped on because MagicM stopped by Whyzzat.com when I noticed this thread.  I was all like "Washington/Baltimore meetup?, heck yeah", when I noticed the 2013 date of the original post... :)
 
 So is this still a thing?  I might be able to drag the new wife along and subject her to the old ways if someone lets me know when and where.. :)

So, you're in the D.C. area now? Still using an Amiga? Hope all's well.

Yes, and no.  I've been up in the NoVa area (specifically up in Ashburn near Dulles International) for about 5 years now, but no, I haven't owned or played with Amigas for years.  

Redrumloa posted something about a "new Amiga" on Whyzzat but until there's a usable OS, I just don't understand the point.  As I said over there, you could have a multi-CPU, 10tHz computer with like Petabytes of storage and RAM and it's all irrelevant without a modern, user-friendly OS...  (This is the same point that got me thrown out of the inner circle when I brought it up with Amiga Inc over a decade ago)...

Still, it'd be great to actually get together with some of the legendary old-timers from Amiga.org sometime...

I'm just sitting here looking at the site which hasn't been updated in a decade wishing I could somehow get it back...  hahaha....

I never imagined for a single second that when I sold Amiga.org to Bill and Ted all those years ago, that Amiga.org would still be sitting here completely untouched from an upgrade or maintenance perspective...

I wish I had the ability to jump back in because I would save what's here but get AO back to it's roots of being a great forum first, everything else second.  When I created the mass CF that Amiga.org currently is, I just thought "hey, that looks neat" and slapped things like links, images, groups, and every other add-on I could find into place.  

A decade later and lessons learned, Amiga.org could have been so much more...

It would be great to meet you Wayne, I think we have something planned at the end of September. Nothing on a real date yet, but something will happen soon. I think I will start a new thread so that nobody will mistake the old thread. Looking forward to meeting and discussing the state of Amiga.

motrucker just turned me onto this thread. I currently go to a monthly Anne Arundel computer meeting for vintage computer systems. If it is not too far. I wouldn't mind meeting up with you all to do one strictly for Amigas. I could bring my A1200 (which is the only one I got now).

However, there is some distance there. Even the Anne Arundel meeting is a little bit of a drive for me.
