I can't find the memory expansion, and it won't boot into the Workbench install I have without it....

I have a spare A603 you can use at the meet if that helps...I'll go and dig it up if interested..

I'm still undecided as to whether I'll attend, but I'm trying to convince my brother to come along too. Hopefully I'll let you all know before the event!

@Epsilon - Yes, there is a chance that internet is available.  There is a modem present in an adjacent room with ethernet plugs and wireless connection however there has been some issues with the connection lately.  We did get it working one time by rebooting it.  I am going to organise this to be fixed asap.  Sorry that I did not get back to you sooner as I could only confirm this last night when I was at the centre.

@MelbourneBen - Yes, 7:30 start.  Thanks also for inviting those others.

I can also confirm that there will be another two people attending to our list.  So it looks like it will be a pretty decent turnout!

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to share numbers of persons attending.

At this stage we are expecting around 15 persons, which is a very decent turnout.  Hopefully there are other Adelaide Amigans that will come out of the woodwork to attend !

Cheers and looking forward to seeing everyone next week!

George

Do to heavy rain fall I have been flown back to Adelaide so I may be able to make this event. But I could fly back to work any day (will only get 24hrs notice if I am lucky.

If I can make it can I turn up with out an RSVP?

Do you require power boards, tables, extension leads etc? I will bring these if I bring any Amiga's.

@cameng

- sure you can attend without an RSVP.

- You are most welcome to bring some extension leads and power boards if you wish.  I will certainly bring some of my own to connect my own system.  There are a few power points around the place so it may be worthwhile.  

- Don't worry about bringing any tables.  There is ample bench space in the room to fit enough items.

@Epsilon

- At this stage I can confirm that there is wifi available.  Is this adequate for you?  I have made the request for ethernet and will find out this weekend if this is an option.  However one of the persons has said that they will organise a mobile internet modem as a backup option.

The key part for me is the ethernet connection, as the X1000 needs an ethernet connection to the internet. It doesn't have a Wifi card in it, only an ethernet port. I plan to bring an 8 port switch so others who need it can share the connection also, assuming it is available.

Given the bulk of the X1000, monitors, etc, I didn't plan to bring much else as setting it up will take some time by itself.

The intention is to show newly released and installed AmigaOS4.1 Final Edition on it, RunInUAE with JIT, various apps and games and the Internet functionality (Timberwolf, Odyssey, SMTube, etc), and things that need internet connectivity like AMIStore, etc.

If internet via ethernet cable is not available i think we would miss out on being able to show a lot of stuff on the x1000.

Please let me know if ethernet will be present so I can make the decision which Amigas to bring as I need to pack them up in advance on sunday evening as Monday is a normal work day.

Looking forward to it!

Catcha,
Epsilon

Hi Epsilon,

At this stage I can report that there is a very good chance (85%) that there will be internet in the form of ethernet available.

There are three options that we are working on:

1. Having a mobile modem that has an ethernet port;

2. Connecting to the internet port in the current room (internet is currently not working and will probably be fixed tomorrow);

3. Having a relatively long ethernet cable that can run from your computer/port into another room where a working modem is present.

We believe that there is a long cable present that you can use, however you may wish to bring one along just in case.

Kind regards,
George

ok, thanks for this update. Having the ethernet will make a difference to what I can demonstrate. How long does the "long cable" need to be? 5m, 10m?

Look forward to catching up tomorrow.

I reckon the safest bet would be 15m.  You could probably get away with 10m, but that may mean setting up closer to the door.  

20m would be the absolute maximum.

Cheers and looking forward to seeing your system,

George

Thanks again for organizing George.

It was good to meet Andrew Wilson and talk about the Phoenix board and meet with other fellow Amigans.
