My Amiga & Retr0 Computing Blog!

Hi Guys!

As well as sharing my projects on my favorite Amiga sites such as EAB and Amibay I have setup my own Website & Blog. I've done this for a couple of reasons, firstly I wanted proper storage for my photo's (bye bye Photo Bucket!) and thought a blog would be a pretty cool way to share my projects.

I hope to make it useful with FAQ's, guides and links to tutorial Video's on my Youtube Channel and maybe even be a resource within the Amiga/Retr0 computing community.

Please feel free to take a look, it's very early days and only a basic Wordpress blog at the moment, gallery, etc to come soon!

http://www.fitzstevesamigaworld.co.uk/?p=21

Thanks for looking!

Steve.

Great thing, M8 .

I want to see that projects there instead of searching all around the web, and your youtube channel is very nice.

Edit: BTW your new Fiber Broadband is a must, as I always get bored uploading videos there.

Thanks mate! I uploaded a 2.5gb file to my FTP in 30 mins yesterday which was pretty awesome (used to take this long for 250mb!) Now I'm ready for HD Video's!

Great job, Steve!

An interesting account that doesn't get bogged down with unnecessary detail and some well-chosen pics to go with it - 10/10

Keep up the good work!

Thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed the read. I find with blogs if the aricle is too big you loose interest and fall asleep

Thanks guys Sorry I missed your replies I wasn't sub'd to this thread doh!

I updated my Blog with a new article

http://www.fitzstevesamigaworld.co.uk/?p=42

I also added an online shop & forum to the site but I haven't linked them on the main page yet, I thought it would be cool to offer some of my sales also on my own site (like my CF setup service) but it's very early days!

The shop doesn't fully work yet so better not buy anything

Thanks for reading & I look forward to bringing the next article soon.

Steve.

Have fun with the G-Rex 4000 PCI Busboard, Steve!

You should think about adding a 'Wanted' page on your Blog when you're notching up regular hits. It might save you looking too long for those hard to get parts in future.

Good idea prowler!

I can't wait to get hold of the GREX, in the mean time I've been doing some testing with my CSPPC, I added a short blog on that.

I'm intending to use my CSMkIII with the GREX though

Ive also got something totally awesome arriving tomorrow

It's been a good week for Retr0 finds!
