I'm going to print this out and show it to my wife whenever she complains about the old A2000HD and A1000 sitting in the second bedroom.

Aye Carumba! I know it will take forever to get around to it, but please check those disks for any titles that might be on my MIA list. HOL/CAPS scans are also a groovy way to make friends and influence people...

Oh, just such a tiny collection ? Cute
Hey, this isn't even worth to be called a collection !
Only 23 Amiga-500 ?
I think you really need a few more
Btw, you aren't living in a 30sqm flat, aren't you

Wait, let me guess you bought it off a guy from Perth on ebay... I was looking at that lot aswell... but like you I live 3000km+ from him and I live in an apartment with a shitload of amiga gear as it is Well done on getting an awsome piece of amiga gear. If your interested in selling some bits, (because I see you have some spares ) pm me. cheers.

yeah this guy is moving out to a new home.
decides to sell off all his amiga stuffs.
That list on his ebay auction is obsolete, the above is also not current as he found more stuff when cleaning his house for the move.

I dont think I will spend so much on shipping, instead I will rent a car with trailer and spend 2 days driving all the way to his state
I sure hope on the way back there wont be any rain along the way

Its going to be hell to check all those disks, but I'll check for any games on MIA list

Yep no CDTV, I asked the guy and he said that time was too expensive to import a CDTV from UK

my house is small but wife and son dont argue much I use one room dedicated for amiga stuffs.

And I thought having

BOTH a 500 AND a 1200 was wild???!!??

What can I say, impressive.

As mentioned earlier, let the rest of us know, (in a year or two, when you've figured out what you want for yourself) if you have any spares.

I know I live on the other side of the world, but I'm sure we can figure something out. I have family in the US, and maybe I can convince them to visit you and buy what I want (that is IF you do want to sell any of it)

Or you could make a net-cafe with amiga's :hoo
