New Old member here

I have been a member of the boards for a while, but Amiga fell off my radar for years until this current world situation hit. I have now broken out some of my old machines and am amazed by how much "stuff" there is available now for these machines.


Current Amiga's owned:
Amiga 500 x2 (perhaps 3), one in box.
Amiga 1200 PAL version
Amiga 3000 (currently working on)
Amiga 4000 (still have the original box for this one).


I have gotten my A3000 cleaned and had the board and power supply recapped. I am now working through the frustrating process of getting a new SD card setup as the hard drive. My original HD crashed while I was playing with it and an SD seemed like the best solution rather risking an original expensive SCSI drive. Progress continues.

Welcome back. You have a really nice collection. If I had more room, I'd get a A500 or A1200 too. What are you using for the SD? SCSI2SD? I have a V5.1 in my A3000.

And then I wonder why is so hard to get an Amiga here in states for reasonable price?! Gribnitz got them all...

Welcome back!

Hi Gribnitz - that is ridiculously impressive collection pal.
