Now and then, buying an `060

I was thinking today, back to `96 when i (my dad) spent over £400 on a cyberstorm 680060 card for my A1200. Back then it was a huge ammount of money but the things i hoped it would do (and did) i thought were definately worth the money.

Today however, i wouldnt dream of spending that much on a gfx card, i could even buy a modest pc for that ammount! Has the price of hardware come down THAT much in the last 10 years? i guess, looking back at some C&VG mags from 1985 when the c64 was £399 things were very expensive in those days, probly the equivalent of buying a pc for £5000!

Oh and my Amiga technologies 32mb A1200 `060 150mb HD still works like a dream

then again if you got an offer to buy a computer 20 times faster than your original computer you would rethink a bit right? (i think i rendered about 20 times faster with my 060, if not more

Ok, heres how it went

One day my dad decieded it would be a good idea to have sex with my mum.

I popped out of her mary and 18 years later i wanted an blizzard `060 for my A1200

My father, the man responsible for "getting my mum up the duff" gave me the money and i proceeded to Gordon Harwoods computer shop and purchased the card with the money my father (He who humped me ma) gave me.

Thats how i remember it anyway.

but how could you remember it.... where you there ? this is contradictory of space time... and you KNOW how that goes down on these Boards MR!

in this forum we respect the quantum dynamity but we will not have such perverse and heretical views where time travel is possible.... we wont.... and not one of us will just idly type by and pretend thats not what you are doing...

I shall call forth the Double D Delicious Damien, and he will strike you down as the Vengeful Mod that his is.... thats MOD spelt with a G ....

Are these two things related at all? You kinda get the impression that they are.

"I'd like an '060 please, Mr Shopkeeper."

"Ah, yes. You look like a lad that popped out of a Mary 18 years ago. You'd be wanting an '060 about now. It does that to you, does that mary."
