Dammit - That was going to be my suggestion.

AndreasM owns EVERYTHING with an Amiga logo on it - just ask him and see.

So you think a new Amiga isn't worthy to compete.

Say your a developer and you place your app/game/software in Amiga's App/Game/Software Store. Everytime a user buys your app/game/software you get 80%, while amiga.com recieves 20%.

This is a level playing field which you don't get with other consoles. A game company as to pay loads of money just for the right to publish on PS3, Wii, X-Box.

Indeed a very lame troll attempt. Maybe it can continue in the Google group and not here on EAB.

I rather nominate it for Stupidest Thread Ever, Troll of the Year, Revelation Troll of the Year, Outstanding Performance on Stupidity, British Inbred of the Year, and maybe some more.

Looking forward to see how retarded you really are or how much of a bad jokester you are.

Can you craft a new Amiga out of Primula!?!

I fecking love Primula.

I would be willing to pay 111 for enough Primula, especially if it had a Amiga in the middle of it did it.

Please make my dream come true, I may not live until the end of Primula.

Primula? What sort of sick person are you KG?

Meat paste is the future of the Amiga. It was good enough for sandwiches in the 80s, it's good enough for the Amiga now.

(Bloody Primula)
