Damn you all...

By chance I happened to find this forum and was so fascinated by all you people still active about the Amiga...

Needless to say, in 10 minutes I got sick with the "Amigitis" again (I actually think it never went away), searched on ebay for a good piece and got myself an Amiga 4000/40: now my wife has another "what do you need this OLD thing for?" looking for a permanent place in our apartment!

I liked to program in assembly when I had my first A500 and I did the music for a couple of ugly demos that we never spread around too much (hopefully I'll find them somewhere sooner or later and post it).
I also started a game with a couple of friends that never got past the first technical previews... fortunately I should say, as looking back the idea was soooo boring, we thought about a puzzle game where the player had to direct cars to fill up a parking lot in the best possible way
..but I was very proud of the piece of music we wanted to use for the highscores! hope I can find that as well one day.

I think that's enough for an intro, hopefully I'll be working on an old school demo soon and post it around!

Be careful - it can be a slippery slope back into childhood if you're not careful.

Welcome aboard.

That's the spirit

Just fix up your Amiga with a brand new keyboard, mouse and screen, stick the A4000 in a drawer, and your wife won't mind Or tell her that you like the A4000, because it's a very nice computer...

Thank you all for the warm welcome!

Here's a picture of the beauty, I think it's in a good shape even if the keyboard sucks big time.
http://yfrog.com/jca4000wipj

I have the full case but it's still open because I've been lazy and didn't setup a serial cable yet and I'm copying files back and forth to a PC via the compact flash card...

This setup won't last that long as I've promised that the living room will be in a clean shape by the end of the day

For the old 90's demos and music you have to wait until this summer when I visit my parent's house again and look for the stuff in the cellar, the new one will be hopefully ready before that!

ps I've posted another picture, a detail of the battery, in this post:
