In fact it was my girlfriend that encouraged me to buy an Amiga again. I've been without one since 2001 and bought a refurbished 1200 from amigakit in august. She came along for the Up Rough 10 year anniversary party and was completely blown away by the Amiganess, as I hadn't really bothered to speak about it with her before. Afterall Amiga wasn't in my life anymore. She says she gets goosebumps from AHX music, and got totally bananas over Goto 80's live set.
