Hey:confused: I just powered the system on one more time before I package it up and instead of the green garble, I'm getting a black screen with horizontal maroon  lines... anyone know what that means:confused:

It means you still do not have a working A1000 computer and quit fussing with it before the little red light in front extinguishes forever.  :lol:

Good Luck!

I'm just asking here - did it ever boot to a Kickstart Screen on a standard monitor or composite?  I'm not criticizing, I was just wondering.  :-)

Actually, both Herd and Haynie were present at Los Gatos when Commodore purchased Amiga, Inc.   In Bagnall's book they are quoted about working with Amiga, Inc. right after the purchase.

I must admit I have a hole in my history knowledge here. What book is this?

I was under the impression that Herd and Haynie were still working with the C-128 during that time, Haynie then shifted to the Amiga world for the B2000.

A bit shoddily redacted (typos and spelling errors); nevertheless a great read. A must buy for anyone interested in the inner workings of Commodore.

I took a close up picture of the only shipping label on the box.  I just realized it was shipped by Federal Express.  FedEx was Federal Express from 1973 til 2000.  I'm trying to figure out where this was shipped to or from... Any info on this older label would be great!:)

Ah yes, I have that on my shelf but haven't read it in years.. I guess I need to check it again.

Another one that's worth hunting down: The home computer wars (Tomczyk).. You'll find most of the 8-bit era text in rise and fall is pretty similar. :-)

Hmm, it was actually one of the first hits on google, the book has been out of print for years.
