and any other mentions here: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=78252
I've become even more optimistic.
So I've started documenting my progress with videos upload to a channel I'm calling Amiga Today http://www.dailymotion.com/amigatoday
and the goal is simply to find practical uses that justify the Amiga today as more than a mere games console with a keyboard that won't let go
I'm interested in feedback about how I'm achieving this. I already know the sound quality is average at best and I've discovered I have some ticks when speaking! I've been cutting thirty minute footage down to about three minutes in general and not going into too much depth - just really to show you if it's worth the trouble of downloading and copying to floppy/running on UAE and to hopefully generate interest in putting the PC / phone to one side and using the Amiga for these jobs instead.
Suggestions appreciated, especially if you think I'm wasting my time!
In my opinion a very good idea. It's a great way to present Amiga in a very different light. Keep up the good work and keep the videos uploading.
I've just posted your video on our Amiga FB profile
