Back for good

last time i logged in it was April 2007

but that was just a short visit, to say goodbye to my friend the Green Amiga Alien

this time i am back for good

during my time away, i scrapped my PC gaming desktop (constant GFX card upgrades began to piss me off), using a laptop now and the consoles, Xbox360, PS3 and Wii.

what kickstarted my new revival was a Netbook, i decided to get one for emulation both to connect to living room TV and too use away on holiday, it worked out cheaper than buying the DSi XL and has way more potential

found the new WinUAE which works great and started loading up more and more Amiga games.... guess what... hooked again

it seems that the members of EAB have become much more organised, instead of just coming up with ideas actually seeing them through

anyway, just bought a new A1200, 4gb HD and EasyAdf committing myself back to the Amiga scene and of course EAB

Members introductions is a good place to start, even though you've been here before but as others, that have returned, have always posted here on their return, I thought it best to give you the best possible chance of getting noticed

See, you've already been noticed by Bloodwych

seriously thanks guys... i was away from eab at about 2005 then came back to see the Green Amiga Alien had past away (2007)...

then came back a week ago

if you signed up here after i left let me give the skinny:

I was very active in the early 2000s, coding some stuff, sharing stuff with members, beta stuff for WinUAE collecting real Amiga stuff

plus have some awesome irc and some great threads to read and reply to...

going back further i was bought an A500 by my step-dad, he bought my brother an Amiga A500, i had a C64 with a bazillion games... he said if traded in my c64 he would pay the rest... but i got a poor price, so it didnt happen... back home, i said ho-humm, but get me AMOS (which i read up on at the shop), i can program games etc and teach my brother to be productive with his new computer...

my main goal of course was get myself sometime on his machine so i could play all the cool new games (it was the screen gems pack, sept '90)

but he said, sod it lets get you your own one, so back to shop traded in c64 got A500, a few games and of course AMOS

up until sept '95 i enjoyed the Amiga scene, with the demoscene, some fantastic games and some of my own creative work - it was the only computer i touched for 5 years ... everyday

forward to 2000 i found WinUAE and EAB
