i thought i replied to this thread already. weird.
myself and one of my friends regularly discuss coding etc (including my amiga stuff) at the pub every week. We still play amiga games on eUAE and WinUAE, depending on who is visiting who.
My old university friends will still play some Amiga games when they visit.
Everyone else just accepts it as part of me. Some are quite astounded by the fact i've started making games etc. Others (who dont really use any/many emulators) are just glad to play more bloodwych levels.
