Just found in my mailbox a bunch of cool, brand new stuff for my 1200: Indivision AGA , CF Adapter and a CF 2GB.

Was not cheap, but who cares... It is, IMO, one of the two must haves: a flicker-fixer for the 1200 and the 1541 ultimate for the 64!

I'm going to buy some more toilet paper!

Oh, and I got some (more) nice stuff from Amigakit this morning - Thank you.
AND a slimline SCSI Slot-loader (ex-Apple) - Hmmm, plans for that.

Oh, and another RiscPC motherboard - spares, you know. (Not that Acorn kit EVER goes wrong - cough)

Yes, horribly over-clocked too - I can't help it, I'm afraid.

Um, idle interest or do you have something in mind..?
(always looking for more)

I gave all my Acorn bits to Martin Piper a long time ago. If you know who that is?

Martin Piper... TBA software..?

Some of my favourite Acorn games: Axis & F.T.T. for starters...

Are you still in touch..?
The reason I ask is a lot of the later TBA games had pretty good copy-protection by RiscOS standards. The result being the only copies about are originals in the hands of people like me...
...how long before time wipes out these copies?
Would he look kindly on releasing what he can of the TBA catalogue onto the net?

Best. 64. Peripheral. Ever.

I've got the complete HVSC (in executable form), the Loadstar Compleat, a whole mess of utilities and applications and about a thousand games on mine. The fun never ends.

I was a bit unsure at first because I had decided not to spend anymore money on the C64, but after reading for a while the ultimate forums I immediately preordered mine!

I will use it mostly for gaming and for HVSC tunes and, who knows, maybe some ASM again!

You'll have to ask him. I have a feeling he released the source code to everything when TBA closed.

1TB external HD (for backing up my Amiga collection, of course!)

Bought a 5.1 surround DVD system last week as well, and a pair of lamp tables for the lounge.

And 2 bottles of Smirnoff Black label...

Sorry for the OT, but what is Minuscule? I think I never heard about that before.

It's an awesome animation series done by the French

Just look at the website I linked to, you can find out all sorts of information like Story / Characters / Images / Teaser / Trailer etc...

On the main page, click on Video of the Month in the bottom right corner to see one episode. You can also watch another episode here: http://www.minuscule-dvd.com/videos
