I looked at other amiga shops and their prices and made mine slightly cheeper.

You should be aware that the non-enterprise version of RealVNC does not have any session encryption. Therefore the procedure is not fully secure. Sessions can theoretically be intercepted, keystrokes logged etc. You really should be using Ultravnc Single Click for this if you are trying to make a business out of it. It's a single-file version of the UltraVNC server with no registry usage, and with the connection initiated by the server. It also has session encryption.

Yes 500s are way too expensive but in reality they aren't profitable trade goods today. It doesn't make sense to open an online shop with £5 machines in it but it doesn't make sense to pay £26 for them either. Now that would be different if it was a charity site offering free amigas and free shipment worldwide *hint*

it not apparent on the site if the 512k upgrades are for the a500 or a500+.

those in the know will know that the a500+ had 1mb upgrades and not 512k ones, they will also know that they are not interchangable between theh 2 machines.

however, those not in the know can make a purchase in error. i'd suggest amending that section.

Under Donations on your site, you say:

"All people making donations will receive a personal thank you, and reduced products or support in the future."

reduced support? , not good.


the site has lots of typos and errors.

Under Donations you say: "Any donations are gladly excepted."

I think you mean accepted! If you except them you don't want them!
