I dreamed I was trying to show 68060 demos to an Amiga hating friend of mine

The friend is real, from back around 28 years ago at college, but he despised the Amiga whilst he had an ST, and for some reason, in this dream, I was trying to show him my favourite high-end Amiga...

After a few years of trial and error, I discovered the best way of running demos, both low-end and high-end, on WinUAE, was the "drag-n-drop" method:

Dragging and dropping ADFs and EXEs that you...

Well, my Steam account has existed since I bought Half-Life 2 back when it launched, in 2004 (what a disappointment that game was) and must've bought less than 50 games over the 16 years since. Your...

That would be all of them, then. I've tried that sort of crap. I just feel that deleting the account and saying goodbye to old games I've completed is the best bet.



I sincerely doubt it....

No, it most likely isn't, being shown at the Finnish Amiga Party 2015, but it's the only Amiga demo I've seen on Pouet.net with Japanese Hiragana characters in the name. ;)

Didn't stop this (https://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=66621) demo from being made. I would link to the video with its great tune, but there's a lot of (ahem) implied "m" activity in it.
