Back to Amiga!

Hi All,

Excellent community here!
Reading these posts brings back a ton of memories.

Back in the day I used to run a multi-line BBS for the Amiga and Atari ST called: 'Dark City of Fear'.

I was shocked to find some information online about it!!:
http://www.pouet.net/bbses.php?which=615

My handle back then was "Dr. DeatH".

I used to deal with alot of the groups back then (both Amiga and ST) but it's been soooooo long I forget many of the names

Sadly, I sold off my Amiga and ST (along with the TON of disks I had) many, many years ago. How I wish I would not have done that!

However recently I've gotten into WinUae and WHDLoad (registered) and am having lots of fun with this stuff again.

I am a big RPG fan and playing games like 'Black Crypt', etc on the Amiga is awesome.

It's funny when I ran the BBS I had everything for the Amiga and ST but had no time to play it. Now I really appreciate actually playing the stuff after all of these years

welcome back

yea it's funny how it was all about just piling up every single disk possible back then and sharing them with friends then actually playing the great games, just had to have them all

come to think of it are we much different now

Thanks all!

I definitely do appreciate the stuff much more now than I did back then. I can actually enjoy some quality gaming time on the Amiga.

Back then it was hurry up to get something out and on to the next. I'm sure many here know what I mean
