Been wanting to get a joypad for the Amiga for a while and got this the other day.
Competition Pro Series III Honey Bee joypad.

I plan on modding it to switch UP and A key when needed, that MissMadLemon has recently covered.

The Geos mouse can also be used by an Amstrad. This is the interesting story about it:

A Nunchuk64 adapter with a case. Now i can use the 8bitdo bluetooth pads on my C64 (via ClassicNES BT dongle), including a jump button, autofire and a button for the space key. Time to play all the new games.

A new element for my trusty soldering iron, since it died last night just as I was getting into a bunch of A500 mods.

Lol, not really, but I've been a good boy :-)

All that cost me less than $500Cdn.



Now I'm looking for a 2 to 4 meg ram expansion for the A500. Been trying to reach Kipper2000 here and on his web page but sadly no answer yet.

I've just bought a black 1531 boxed cassette player. I've had to buy also later -some minutes- the manual that it was missing.

I think that I'll be buying some more black stuff anytime soon.

Edit: Ok; I've been a week out for "holidays". In this week I've made some exams -I think they all will get a 100% score- and later I've fixed a lot of things in the Yamaha SR250 motorcycle that my best friend has, so now it looks almost as new (it would take a while to tell about all of the improvements I've made).
Now I'm back home and I've had to fix my 1972's VW Bettle leaking fuel from a tank hose.... some hours to fix that, and also I've changed oil and filter to my Honda CB600F motorcycle and a couple of things more . I'll be back soon with Commodore stuff.
