Got me my first amiga since 1995,
A fairly clean (bar a scratch or 2) CD32 no less!
Think it probably needs a recap as I did get a picture(CVBS) along with the fanfare upon boot. But 30mins of frantic searching(My place looks like steptoes yard currently) for an Amiga CD the picture went screwy then died!
Any recommendations for the current E-pray sellers?

Im thinking it might be one of those French models Ive heard about as the S-Video cable fits either end at the monitor but does not fit at the Amiga end (Too many pins in the Socket)
Pictures when Ive tidy up and find camera!

Had it custom made from a AliExpress supplier.
This one:
https://www.aliexpress.com/store/1188201

Surprisingly affordable. (Custom work is about the same price range as their examples, shipping was 22 euro and an extra 80 because the Belgian customs also wanted their share)

Thanks! Yeah, that's cheaper than I'd expectged (customs, though, ouch!). I'd love to have one of those in my garage.

Went to an Amateur (Ham) Radio flea market and scored some old PC parts:

For the 'Miggy:
Quantum Fireball 1.2GB SCSI2 HDD (free)

FREE PC parts:
populated PII 233Mhz mobo (128MB RAM?)
populated AMD Athlon 900Mhz mobo (0Mb RAM)
SoundBlaster AWE 64 EISA
52/32/52X IDE CD-RW drive
S3 Trio Virge DX PCI SVGA Card
Netgear (Bay Networks) FA310-TX RJ-45 10 Base-T PCI
Linksys WiFi A/G PCI (in Box)
Commodore 8-Pin DIN AV cable

Stuff I paid for:
ATX PSU ($1)
CompUSA 1.44MB Floppy drive still in a sealed box ($2)

eBay:
Video Toaster 4000 original mouse pad (not repro) ($10)
(found my own Toastrer 4000 mouse pad, so ugh, now I have two...)

All in all, a good day, minus the eBay

Cheers

I bought a Nintendo 64 w/ RAM expansion, 2 controllers, Crusin USA, Diddy Kong Racing, Super Mario 64, Mario Kart, Star Wars - Episode 1 - Racer & an S-Video Cable.

Oh yeah, and a Retrotink 2x + S-Video/AV Switch so I can share it with my OG PSX.

3 laptops lol.

1 for me, and going halves for replacements for my boys for Birthday and Christmas.

Dell had an ebay special here in Australia......

$1299 down to $720 I think it was....then they ALSO allowed a discount code to take even more off.

Final price was $590 each.

The spec?

Ryzen 5 2500
Vega 8 integrated GPU using up to 2 GB system ram
8 GB (2x4) upgradable to 16 GB (2x8)
m2 256 GB SSD and a free 2.5" Sata bay
15" screen
Full keyboard + numeric key pad


At that price I couldn't resist.

Not a gaming laptop no......but it'll do

I just ordered a ZD-985 desoldering station along with some extra supplies for it. I also ordered a selection of tips for my Edsyn Loner 951sx soldering station including some small ones for SMT work and high temp ones for lead free work.
