For me, just one for when my A4000Meditators boots up into default NTSC mode. But if we get the Radeon card working with Picasso96 (I hope someone knows how to use it) the system will boot into S/VGA.

Me too! Do I need a Google Plus account to view live feed or tape delay or is my regular Google account able to view the action? Either way, I really hope you AmiRetros at least record the event and post on YouTube!

I've got a spare projector from my work, what do you guys think?  Bring it?  Don't bring it?  LOL.  ;)

I can't make it there until about 7-7:15 (gotta feed the cats and myself).

Does anyone need any non-AGA chips? A friend who used to have a repair business gave me all his chips a few years ago (Denise, Paula, Fat Gary, and a few Lisas)

Garyg Bring the chips, I have 2 A2000's with out chips. We can build another A2000. Mike, bring the projector. As for the google account, I think you need to download the app. Keep posted today as the weather may get bad and we will have to cancel, no reason to have the entire DC metro area Amiga brain trust on the roads in bad weather, I will post later as the storm progresses.

You need a google+ account. No worries though...it only takes a few extra moments to setup and we can pm to get the connection working in the "Hangout"

BigBronc - Are we still shooting for 7ish to get started or have we moved this up to 630?

All - Is there a possibility of building an ECS A2000 tonight? (woah...)

So I "might have" gone a little bit overboard with loading up my truck, I've got about six extra boxes of parts including an Extra A2000 motherboard with ECS Agnus and 2.0 ROM, a GVP HC8, etc.  Would love to mix in my spares with @bigbronc's stuff and build a good working system for him.  Bring coffee, it might be a late night! :drink:

PS - I plan on leaving work at 5:00, it's about a 1.5 hour drive, so hopefully will be there by 6:30.  See you guys!  :D

Alas, I don't have any CIA chips. Might be some working ones in a dead A500 in the basement, but that's another project for another day.

I'll bring a "tube" (12- or 16-chip string packed in plastic) each of Paula, Denise, and Fat Gary (for some reason I DON'T like that name!) chips.

I wanted to shoot a big thank you to the guys for having me "over" last night ;)

I still have a lot to catch up on, but I learned quite a bit from the conversation we had and appreciate the information provided. Hopefully next time I can be there for the experience, shake some hands, and contribute.

Thanks to BigBronc for the setup!

Had a great time last night, thanks again to @Bigbronc for hosting, and for everyone who came out!

I snapped a few photos with my phone:


1 - I might have brought "a few" extra boxes of supplies, just in case!  ;)

2 - Garyg's A4000D with Mediator in tower chassis
 
3 - Paul and Garyg working on the A4000
 
4 - My A2000 next to Paul's A1 X1000
 
5 - Madshib joined us via Google Hangout

6 - The A4000/Mediator setup receives a new video card
 
7 - Pulled this A2000 apart down to the board, for cleaning and rebuild
 
8 - A1 X1000.  This machine was silky smooth and fast, sorry I didn't bet better pics of it!
 
9 - Bigbronc watching the A2000 reload it's OS - after putting it all back together we gave it a fresh install of OS2.1, AsimCDFS, and Toaster software.
 
10 - Toaster is live!  :hammer:

Thanks for the pics! Looks like sooo much fun! Love the Big Box Miggys - one of my prize possessions is my NOS Flyer Board! If I ever make it to DC for a meet I'll be sure to bring my Roadhouse Stratocaster too!

Thanks for the pix, Mike! Perhaps I should have turned around for a pose in my Amiga sweater ;-)
