Yeah, for me paying in EUR was the cheapest.

I've finally set my A1200 up with WB 3.9 and a 32GB CF. WHDLoad running like a dream

Some pics of my new AmigaOne XE - 933mhz G3/512mb Ram/Radeon 9250AGP.

Running OS4.1 U6 of course

Cleaver case this is, takes a full size ATX board which the A1 XE is but is Micro ATX sized. PSU goes on bottom right of case with extraction fan on the side, need to extend the 20pin connector though as it isn't quite long enough lol.

Runs much quicker then my Micro A1, the extra MHZ and Full Fat Radeon make a lot of difference to the overall experience.

More Sony goodness from the recycling center today.. I had two ViewSonic VP201bs, one connected to the PC and one to the A3000/4000 pile. The PC one broke, so I took the one from the Amigas to replace it.

Now I needed an Amiga monitor, so time to hit the recycling center.. I found another nice mid-aughties Sony that has similar horizontal + vertical ranges. This time an SDM-X95K. This one also has a built in usb+audio kvm when switching between d-sub and dvi. Nice. Not needed with the Amigas though. :-)

And needless to say, the X95 is also rock solid at 50Hz. No jerks or stutters in scrollers.

So if someone's looking for monitors to connect to their scan doubler, look at '00s Sonys in addition to older ViewSonics. Be sure to look at the spec table in the manual before buying though! (get the pdf off the internets) I did and wasn't disappointed either time.

I bought a C64C yesterday. I had to pay just under 30 Euros including shipping and accessories. I guess the blue/transparent Competition Pro is worth 15-20 Euros on its own.

Possibly even the disks are beyond recovery. further investigation will tell (the game in question wasn't in the picture.)

bought this today (argos 6.99)


which is effectively 6.99 for this bluetooth keyboard with a free DS game...

it's 7.99 online, but if you go instore and order it over the counter (not via website reserve) then it's 6.99
the quality isn't *GREAT*, the chicklet keys wobble a little, but for 7 it's put up-able with I have a motorola one which cost a lot more and it feels better/beefier, but for this price I can just stick it in a bag and not worry about it.

I got a Roland UM-ONE USB-MIDI adapter today!

http://www.roland.com/products/en/UM-ONE_mk2/



Works great on OSX and Windows 7 (Win 8 too) and even works properly with Windows running in a Parallels VM on OSX! I've tried El Cheapo units from eBay before but they have timing issues that cause my Roland MT-32 to not work 100% as SysEx messages just never worked (a MIDI Synth without working SysEx is useless).

Got a nice little expansion for my HP N36L MicroServer .... a HP P410i SmartArray HW Raid Controller! performance is much better than the stock on-board SATA Controller.

Have only a few Psygnosis games left to find now.
Today picked up this:

It's the Atari ST version. Have the Amiga long box, though unfortunately not the shirt: (
After this only Nevermind, Atomino and Armor-Gedon remain as games I even remotely care to collect. There are others though that I don't care for, but probably will get if I can find them dirt cheap - like Red Zone, Prime Movers, Air Support, Walker and Microcosm...
