Anyone near Kent want some Amiga stuff?

My parents have kept this in storage for years and are about to throw it out. Come take the lot and its yours. Sittingbourne area.





The floppy drives on all these machines make a grinding noise and won't read discs. I guess the dust got to them.
The A1200 has an 030 accelerator. No harddrive (I'm taking that with me to copy files from). Boots up and works fine apart from the floppy drive.
The A500 boots up. The two A500 plusses just show a solid grey instead of the insert disc screen.
The monitor is an Amstrad CTM644 converted to plug into the Amiga's video out. Works fine, includes cable.

Let me know if you want it.

Brain: Really... This is what I have to work with... <sigh>

Funny thing, I bought that copy of Moonstone much later than all the other games, so it's in better condition than the rest. I bought it to send to someone (maybe JOTD?) so they could develop a WHDLoad install for it. I ended up not sending it for some reason, I think they already got a copy from elsewhere or were to busy to work on it at the time.

I had a phase of this years ago! amiga stuff being given away and this was a common sight for me back then! My wife was driven mad at one point as I ended up with piles of old stuff (I cannot refuse old stuff even now lol) sadly there was never an a2000 or a4k but plenty of a500's and a1200's.

This was around 1998 to 2000 ish, PC's were the new thing, attitudes were get shot of outdated and buy in this wonder windows box lol.

I did pretty well out of that attitude back then but at the expense of our storage being rammed full of stuff

So this is a good score! Is there any NBS PD in that lot?
