Amiga Stuff Giveaway - Leeds, UK Pickup

I'm having a bit of a clear out, and can't bear to bin my old Amiga stuff,
but would be happy to give it to a good home!

I have:
Amiga 500 +512 memory expansion
A590 External hardrive+2MB memory (broken - might just need
reformatting though)
External Floppy Drive
Lots of joysticks, couple of mice
100's of cover disks (Amiga Format/Power/Shopper, plus some CU etc)
Lots of games/manuals too.

Pick-up from Pudsey (Leeds), UK area.

Cheers
Mark

Happy

I've just had word from Merlin & Chiark,


merlin@iloveamiga.net
paul_s@eab

Dear Paul,

My wife recently asked me not to buy anymore Amiga related gear and now that this freebie has come she has disowned me. So I take back my offer - you can have it now.


chiark@ihatemac.com
paul_s@eab

Dear Paul,

I feel the same way, the goods are all yours


So there you go - the joys of being single

My apologies, I assumed you wouldn't be taking the lot! I'm literally 5 minutes away from the guy.

I didn't see the "I'll take it all". Oops!

All yours then!

@ Chiark

Let me pick the items up and take a look at the A590 to see if it is actually doing anything, as DuneInfo says it's not working properly, so we could be arguing over an electric doorstop.

I dived in on this offer to stop the possibility of it all ending up on a certain auction site for £££££s....Once sorted through, I expect most of this will be recycled through Amibay, along with some other stuff I have to one side.

"Who dares wins, Rodders..."

I've just had an e-mail from Paul_s

Paul_s@atarisucks.com

Dear Merlin,

Please excuse me, I am schizophrenic and sometimes I don't know what I'm talking about, please disregard my previous message. I am now going to lie down, in my nice room with mattress wallpaper and wearing my lovely long sleeved jacket that the Doctor gave me as a present.

No worries at all, and apologies for my apparent gazumping - I didn't read that you wanted it all , so I've made myself look a pillock. I do that regularly

As for the doorstop, I'm certainly not going to argue over it . i like the challenge of fixing things that aren't working, that's why I wanted it

Many thanks to DuneInfo, who is a thoroughly nice chap (and wears Star Wars T-shirts too!) for all of the goodies collected tonight.



I feel a good sort through all of this cool stuff over the weekend is in order....
