Yep, just like those soon-to-be Inhell keychains!

You've got a silicon breeding colony in your shed! Cyber sex on steroids methinks!

Can I place some stuff in your shed? Sounds like a goldmine to me.

No wonder the poor Americans can't get hold of A1200's and other Amiga's - people are keeping hundreds locked away in there garden sheds

I mean why have one Amiga when you can have 6.

They're literally growing off trees over here Akira, or er, falling from the skies! In fact they're so common people are putting them in bloody sheds because they're a nuisance! Itís a disgrace!

The world needs Amigaís and us Brits are chucking them out of our homes!

As an Amiga preacher it makes me sick. I'm setting up an Amiga orphanage. Donations welcome.

I hope the Amiga was OK Mick_AKA. I prey it had a soft landing on your head.

WHOAH, nice setup Oscar!

BTW you forgot to mention a very important peripheral:

Dude, gotta love your G4-800

You know I just recently got rid of my G4 on Ebay. I only purchased it July 1 of last month. With the rebate I received from Apple I broke even and now I'm out for the dual 867.
Aside from not mentioning the MS optical mouse. I maid a mistake I don't have 2 A2000s, it's 2 A4000s.
Also I used the Dazzale DVC-80 to connected to my Hi8 Hitachi camcoder to capture the snapshot.
I really do need a DV camcorder or digital camera though.

Only a few times for some freelance work. If you deal with Xerox or Oce printers and/or software, we may have met.

Still even though my Mac is going to be new, I still miss the stuff I can't get back cause I never took the time to back it up. My Amiga Sculpt-Animate projects, Turbo Silver and Imagine projects too. I hate myself when I think that I just threw most of that stuff away thinking never again would I want it back. Damn it!
I envy you guys with all that stuff you;ve held on to and collected.

Ey Oscar. Nope, not the one I knew. In 1992 I was working in a wine shop and we installed a new database/ cash register system and MS DOS and the first Pentium were out. Ahh..the memories. Oscar was the guy who installed it, and many , many , many a time he had to come and fix it. *L*

Got abit nostalgic the other day and since I recently sold my Ultra 10 on Ebay I thought I'd setup my Amiga 4000 in a proper place between my new PowerMac and Athlon system. Just to keep em apart. I only really use ne of the A1200s you see in the picture to run demos when I'm bored. Or to get new ideas for sketching or perhaps some rendering.
