Happy EAB - Amiga calendar project....?

Just a random thought that popped into my mind just now.

In our local newspaper we have a 'looking back' section which has stuff dating back 125, 100, 50 and 25 years ago.

Obviously, the Amiga scene isn't THAT old but hows about...

On each day having some kind of random daily event??

For example... On this day the Amiga 500 was announced... etc and have links to AMR or something like that?

Amiga Calendar anyone? I'm going to hunt for a web based calendar program that can do this kinda thing... yea I know VBB has a calendar but something which is a bit more powerful and can be customised...

That sounds quite cool but not sure how much interesting stuff we could get in there.

Still, when I saw the thread title I was worried; thought you wanted EABers to pose for a nude calendar or something, tastefully obscured by Amiga-related items and the like

Don't give Paul any hints You never know what he comes up with next...
I think it's not a bad idea, so let's start to gather dates

You've got a gift GH, a real gift that's going into waste since you're not flooding the OT with posts like that

OMG. Graham, what a horrible thought that is. I think I need to be sick

@Paul_s
Sound like a cool idea but it may be preferable to make it a weekly thing, or even monthly depending on the frequency of, so called, events

Maybe you could then 'borrow' some dates from them for us...
