My Amiga catch of the week



For $70 I got


1. An A600 PAL w/220 Watt PS + bad floppy drive(No big deal I had an A500 Applied Engeering PS laying around and a good floppy drive).

2. A1200 motherboard without Kickstart ROMS

3. NTSC GVP G-Lock genlock w/ original box, floppy & docs.

The guy I got this from is a pretty cool Amiga guy and he still has his A4000 with Video Toaster (He is keeping that system).

I also had to give him 2 copies of my Pyromania software but that is no problem for me since I developed it.

Did I get a good deal guys?

You have a fleet of Amigas and all I have is this lowly, broken down, damn near useless A2000 sitting here. And yet another Amiga drops in your lap while even my PC is deteriorating away. I must have some seriously shitty karma...

Forgot to mention the PIII 400 Mhz machine with 128MB RAM and Winblows98SE that I got for $299 from another guy.

I got this system for my 7 year old son so he can play Starcraft, MAME & WinUAE. It keeps him off of my 1.2Ghz AMD Winblows XP/Linux box. He never did use the 200 Mhz PowerMac 5400 I got him so that got moved to the garage next to my 2nd SGI O2.

Busy week as far as buying computers goes. I only need an A2000, A3000, A4000D to complete my collection. I don't want an A500 since I already have a CDTV which is a fancy A500.

If I can find some more great deals Twistin'Ghost maybe I can hook you up for a low price on an Amiga. It may take a few weeks.

Someone please donate an Amiga 1200/3000/4000 to Twistin so he can spend the next year of his life dumping his originals for the CAPS project.

I've got an A500 that I bought without the RGB cable/TV adapter, so I can only use it in monochrome B&W mode. Imagine how stupid I felt and feel. And don't even mention that free "broken A3000 that I passed up.

The latest mess is what is probably blown CIAs. The internal floppy is a goner (due to a pin on the motherboard that came out somehow...fixable, but a pain.) The mouse is near dead and the monitor randomly fades to black (a slap on the side fades it back up!) and probably some other things I am forgetting. I reckon it's all fixable if I only had the time. And I have had piss-poor luck xferring between Amiga and PC, plus my dat drive is missing a power supply.

Tranfering files from PC to Amiga

For those that do not have a TCP/IP network setup between their Amiga and PC has anyone tried this low cost solution? Is it fast? Is it good?

Read Here

Some people have problems getting this software to work. Apart from a crap install script on the Amiga side (ended up setting it up myself), it's brilliant in my experience. Read about it above.

Still, with ethernet cards being so cheap for the PC and Amiga, that may be a more viable option if your constantly transferring large numbers of files as the connection breaks now and again.
