Why is this in AMIGA General Chat?

For the same reason why its in the Amiga General Chat on AW... the scammers that are C=USA and their deluded followers deliberately start a thread in the wrong section to piss everyone off.  Eventually it will be move.... eventually :lol:

Nice company that works only at the weekends.


I guess you don't understand time management for busy executives.  Weekends and nights is when they are not typically tied to the phone or attending meetings.  Community outreach typically happens during down time of busy schedules.  I guess the very idea of mass production and the requirements for it to happen and successful execution of the production line is a bit foreign to you.

No wonder it took them so long to remodel a computer designed 30 years ago, without a CAD system.


Sure there was a CAD system for the C64x's mold: http://www.commodore-amiga.org/forum/27-commodore-usa/2154-images-of-the-c64xs-mold?lang=en#2154

On the contrary working only at the weekends is nice if you want to play with your Amigas in the weekdays. Where one can apply for a job at CUSA? Only if they had anything to do with the Amiga.


Well you just will have to wait till some time in 2H11 for those Commodore Amigas to be rolling down the assembly line.  Perhaps you will pass the time waiting while using your A1X1K. Oh wait...

Thank gawd for that... :)

I mean whenever they have to start putting the letter "H" into years then that must be so far off in the distant future that we'll all be long dead and never have to hear about these overpriced PC's... :D

I guess it might a regional issue with that abbreviation.  Typically 2Hyear means second half of that given year as would 3Qyear would mean third quarter of that given year.  Glad to help you out, don't even mention it.  Aren't you glad you learn something new today? :)

Having a great day thanks!

That avatar... is that C=USA's footprint in the market under a x1000 magnified-zoom lense?   Wait it could be Big Foot's... oh nvm no-one has ever seen that either...

Oh, did we hurt Barry's feelings by not understanding how Big Real Serious Businesses with Disney(C)(TM)(R)(TM) Endorsement(TM) work? I guess the idea of releasing a bunch of confusingly random dates and announcements each phrased like an actual indication of a pending release is just foreign to us...

Might be regional in some part of your brain cell but guess it's kinda typical of you to come up with some lame excuse for a typo... ;)

What's up with all these abbreviations? Did you just make these up? If you didn't then that person who did is an idiot.

What year is A1X1K? I'm assuming it was about 1000 years ago...

Actually, dammy is right. I started the thread. And even though he and I would be at odds over some things (the president for instance), I think we both agree on one point. Barry Altman and C=USA ought to be given a chance before they are written off.

You really don't know that 2H11 would be the send half of 2011?  And you didn't now that the metric definition of 1000 is Kilo abreviated as K?  So you really didn't read A1X1K as AmigaOne X1000?  Really?  If those abbreviations flew over your head, then no wonder you post many of the things you post.  You seem to have a hard time understanding the information around you.

Not taking the mickey here but I've NEVER seen anyone use a term like "2H11" before to describe a date... :)

Maybe Dammy was right, must be an American or regional thing... :)

I agree.  However, his chance ended when he hijacked an existing brand, threatened people in the community, spread falsehoods, behaved like an arsehole, unleashed Spambots on us (Dammy) and has still failed to deliver a product.  He's had ample opportunity to undo the things he's done wrong and done nothing.  That really says it all.
