Hmmmmm.......

Well folks........ I've been on the Amiga for nigh on since 1988, and I have had some good times, and some rough times.

The rough times have been more recent. I may have to give up all Amiga activities or severely cut them down, because at the moment, my relationship with the missus is at an all time low, and my Amiga related stuff/Internet stuff isn't helping matters (in fact it was cited as the main reason!).

Tomorrow I have a BIG interview, if I get the job, my activities are severely cut down anyway, that I have no choice about.

But if its a choice between the Amiga and the Girlfriend, the Amiga will come off worse (lets face it, she's alive, the Amiga......isn't!).

So, I give you this warning that I will not be coming on here as often, won't be replying as often, and that my slow projects just got slower!

If it does come to me leaving, any and all Amiga related hardware will be for sale to you guys, and any WHDLoad sources, readers, in fact anything I have on my harddrives will be uploaded for those that want it, should they find anything useful.

I'm not gone yet........ but very soon I might well be.

Some of the more important projects I will finish off before I go, other people can continue the rest if they see fit to.

It's not Adios yet......

I hope that, anything you do, is the best for you. You are an Amiga legend and I'm very grateful to you for all you have done.

So whatever you do, thanks, and good luck!

(just try to pop by and say 'hi' from time to time if you do leave )

Would be sorry to see you go, but if you do...Do you still have my two disks, Junior Typist and Better Maths? If so, please could you send them to Fiath or a member of the CAPS team for imaging as these disks seem very rare. Thanks (It would be a shame to have them lost forever)

This HAS to do with the Amiga Scene, do you doubt it?

Akira -Certainly not mate, I was joking!

He just mentioned his girlfriend....who isn't an Amiga.

But anyway, all the best, hope things go well.

@Galahad
I would truly miss your presence here, but I know full well how hard it is to juggle the real world and the scene (?!) world, for lack of a better term.

I wish you the best of luck with your chick, your employment and your general happiness (but I still have high hopes that you'll be around, even if those other things happen to swallow you up!) You are an Amiga legend that I idolized back in the day as I do now and it is an honor to know you, dude.

I will for sure be around a little less in between now and Xmas, that doesnt mean I wont be doing stuff, just more likely to do a whole load of fixes in one hit.

*IF* I get this job, and its a big *IF*, not only will you guys laugh, but it isn't until February 22nd 2004, after that my activities are well and truely cut down.
