H is for Hash. Made 3D animation programs for the Amiga.

H is for Harry. Debbie Harry of music group Blondie fame was the subject of a digitized video capture portrait by Andy Warhol at the 1985 debut of the Amiga 1000 at Lincoln Center. According to the Official Blondie site, Debbie, in promotion of the Amiga, sang "I love my Amiga cause it gives me hi-res goosebumps." (I doubt she was an Amiga user, but her face was the first image I digitized.)

J is for JX-100 Scanner from SHARP. This small unit captured about 4 x 6 inch images in 18-bit color, at up to 200 DPI. The first color scanner on the market for the Amiga. (AFAIK)

L is for Lemmings, one of the most addictive games ever put out on the Amiga. That game and it's sequels drove most of us barmy at one time.

@ Zetr0

L is also for "Like I can be bothered checking the whole thread, for what was said before.... NOT".

PMSL
