Hah, nice thread!
Well the first generation of my Amiga contacts (circa 87-94) have all gone to do something else. A few of them I found on facebook (even if I left fb now) and one is still a friend, tho he lives in San Francisco and works for Pixar now. He used to be a real killer in Deluxe Paint way back. =)
Second generation of Amiga contacts I still am in touch with now and again and some of those became really good friends too (Up Rough members among others).
Internet is good and all but I'd start snailswapping A500 stuff in a second again if it was possible. Nothing beats it. Or going to copy partys with an empty lot of disks and going home with a real treasure!
