Nice to hear from you!
My history with Amiga is much like yours: Early adopter, (1988) then my main computer for 11 straight years.
Everyone I knew ditched the Amiga in the 90's soon after Commodore died, to a level that I felt I was in no man's land. Till discovering EAB and meeting with AlfaRomeo, 14 years have passed since I saw live an A1200, from my own A1200.
Did you actually run from the Police?
I wasn't aware the we were such prolific hackers in the times, especially Amiga dudes!
Well, we're starting to pile up guys.
