Well, well, well...

I wanted something more expendable than my old A1000 so I bought an A500... I thougth I was set but it seems I wasn't done yet! I've just scored an A2000 in very fine condition. This will be my main workhorse once I fill it up with cards and HDD

The A500, being a pal model will be my gaming "console" hooked on my 60"TV.

Akira can I ask you where (to what) have you got it connected so it's vertical? A cartridge expander?

Thanks. I would love to have just a right angle cartridge port adapter if it was available (and solid enough).

Ups... Now that you say that, yesterday I bought a C=64 mouse; the 1351.

https://www.ebay.es/itm/C64-Mouse-Ma...72.m2749.l2649

Yep, I know that they are expensive but it's been a long time that I want one.

And something I'm looking for too, well the whole gold box serie...
But I'm just starting collecting physical media so I'll get them eventually.

In the mean time I make due with .adf and pdf manuals.

Oh lucky you. I have the Silver Blades and Pools of Darkness for the Amiga, as well as Beholder 1 and 2 (but Kixx XL versions which I don't really mind.).

Yeah, I'm now short of funds! Actually, I saved some cash throughout 2017 and I'm going away with work for a chunk of 2018 so the budget can just about handle it. But it might be the last spending for 2018. Not bad for 5th Jan

I finally got a monitor for my Amiga as it's been about 7 years since I had a display that could handle composite output (ew!).

The Benq BL702A looked to be recommended so went for one of those. It works great with Workbench, albeit some banding and moire patterns, but I didn't expect it to handle games which is a pleasant surprise. Of the disks I still have and tried so far, Turricans 1 and 2, and Stardust have survived 25+ years of bitrot.
