Gotek - shows Nor

I installed a Gotek in my Amiga 600 & it works fine - can copy ADFs to a USB drive and it'll boot up fine and dandy.

AmigaKit - 1MB "Chip RAM" module

Just wanted to give a shoutout for AmigaKit ... purchased a 1 MB RAM module for my Amiga 600 (also has provisions for a real-time clock should I ever want to add that)

BetterWB vs 3.1.4

I installed BetterWB on my Amiga 600 running with Kickstart 3.1 ROM -- quite a nice WorkBench.
