It's none of my business really, so feel free to ignore me if you like, but from a few things youve said in recent times I cant help but get the impression youre only recently married ?
You tend to speak of your wife fondly. Surely that's a sign of only recently having been married ?  :)
Near as I can tell this is where I write something under the guise of being innocuous, but really its a pot shot at another persons/peoples choice of Amiga based systems. Unfortunately only I cant see how transparent and petty it makes me look.

Nothing unless you post pictures of it on your lawn and eBay it.  :)


The weather in the UK is not reliable enough :P

I was talking about this with a friend and he said would take 3 sessions to display the whole lot in the garden but would help.

Hey just for the record, yesterday was my 10 year wedding anniversary and I am still enamored with my wife...  I am the luckiest guy in the world and I KNOW it...   You will never hear me talk about my wife in any manner other than fondly...

You have to put things in perspective a bit, most of what he is displaying is software. I mean look how much room an A500 takes up in the photo... I have 35 x A500 Amigas etc... and hundreds of boxes of Software and thens there's the other Amigas and masses of addons too...

He can have all the consoles and cartridges he likes but I'm one up on him because my entire collection would be Amiga only... LOL

I wouldn't even bother putting out the commodore museum pieces I brought a few years back just for the Amiga bits :p I've got about 20 odd printers from the ice age...

anyway, enough tit for tat :-)

Perhaps he should have just put up a buy now and then it might of ended before cutting into bandwidth lol

I'd been thinking about that for the past couple of days and your right, before the wife made me get rid of over 4000 boxed games years ago (never had a lot of computers or consoles, about 18 max at one time) but if I were to have layed out all those old boxed software I'm pretty sure it would have looked like those pics or bigger... :)

Still those pics are impressive none the less and at least the guy went to all that bother to do it... :)

The dude states that it took him 25 years to come up with his business card design.  Well, it tells me one thing about his getting results, that they come very slow.  Heck, it took him 25 years to figure out a business card.:roflmao:

I would need a football pitch to lay all my stuff out. At times I seemed to be collecting in one go as much as that guy is selling , and I was given the stuff so cost me nothing. Maybe I'll put mine up for sale if it generates that much interest. Could do with getting my house back. Can't recall the last time I saw it...

Just as an example this is what I was 'given' last time I went on my travels...

The guy contacted me and wanted all this added to my collection. Certainly not the only time it had happened.

Scuzz, if you ever sell off your collection, my wife will be glad we live on opposite sides of the Atlantic! :) Not that it would stop my from paying shipping, but kicking up local PSU's / 240->110V tranformers pal->NTSC adapters (To work with NTSC flatscreens instead of bulky CRTs that don't care) would be a bit much. lol
