Greetings from Sunny Somerset UK

Evening All,

Just as a brief intro, had an A600HD when I was younger and spent hours upon hours tinkering in Octamed, AMOS and obviously gaming. Like many I sold my beloved friend and "upgraded" to a PC in the late 90's.

Last November I was offered a large amiga job lot which included a mint A600 along with a really yellow A1200, games, extra disk drives etc etc. I gladly handed over my cash and set about testing my loot.

i was lucky with almost 90% success rate. I went about listing the A1200 and stuff I wasn't interested in to fund various upgrades to the 600.

I now sit a few months later with my Recapped A600, Furia board, 2Mb Chip Ram, KS 3.1.4, CF card HD, PCMCIA CF adapter and my most prized upgrade, BLUE LEDS!!!

Looking forward to many more hours tinkering.

The centre of the known universe and home of Scrumpy.

God if I never move back to the UK from Australia, I WILL......WILL Live in Somerset!

My Dad was from there so we visited every summer and to put it bluntly, I fkn LOVE the place!

I hope to visit there again possibly late summer next year. We'll see.

Oh and welcome to the board.
