Gee, I really should learn how to read rather than skim -- because the English manual says that too. (Thank-you for pointing it out.)

Which leaves the other problem. Why is behaving like I'm...

It looks like a better way of doing things, particularly since I am not a fan of PDF, but the logistics from the perspective of the end user makes it a non-starter. (No matter how simple these files...

I started out copying programs out of Compute's Gazette for my Commodore 64 in the mid 1980s and tried to learn a bit of programming from there. Didn't have much success though, until I reached...

I rarely use emulators. More often than not, they are more difficult to setup than the real thing. A real Amiga, you just plug it and go. My A500 is also completely silent when the hard drive is...

Someone went to the trouble of developing and marketing a C=64 in hardware and you are criticising it?! Our Amigas and C=64's and other such toys will not last forever. And while this toy is...

Wowa CHiEF, don't you think there's a bit too much plastic encasing that keyboard there. ;-) Now pull out the screwdriver, pull of the plastic and make it look like a real computer and not some...

I would have to say an Atari ST looks better. But it is just the colour you know. ;)

Next to that an Amiga 500 looks nice. I've always liked the computer-in-a-keyboard style, and find the lines...

Yeap, real machines suck and emulators are the way to go. Emulation is so much faster than real machines, and you can even go portable if you own a laptop.

I know one chap offline, but we have never met in person. We've gone through snailmail, via radio, and (of course) via email. It's the closest thing I will get to a flesh-and-blood friend who will...

I received legit copies of 3.5 and 3.9 with machines I picked up, but never use them. They don't seem to offer much when your best machine has a 68030, and they won't even run on the machine I...

But CGA looks great, with a greyscale monitor. I ran into a couple of those monitors, and must say that they did wonders for CGA games. The games probably looked the way the colour blind IBM...
