Heya all,

I was checking that forum since some weeks and i decided to say hi in a "non-anonymous way" !

First time i saw an Amiga i was 6 (omg that was more than 20 years ago!), it was a A500, and we had the same one at home not much time later. Got a A1200 when the A500 didn't work anymore and discovered lots of good things (Turrican, ProTracker...)

Now I don't use an Amiga anymore (tho there is still a A1200 at my parents' ), but i still play sometimes to Amiga Games via WinUAE.

What to say more, i'm a web developer, i live near Paris in France, and everyday at work i'm listening to old tunes i found at unexotica site with Deliplayer (that kinda rocks!)

Well cya soon all !

I think you need to get that A1200 from your parents - the real thing is the best but Emulation is a very good second place.

I started with the A500 too, great times!

I think you will enjoy these forums, so many great memories and things to do.

Welcome to EAB!!

BrooksterMax is right, you need to grab that A1200 from your parents place and fire it up, such a lot has changed even recently new things are being worked on.

My first Amiga experience was an A500 at a friends house, this would be like you about 20 years ago! But I never owned an Amiga until about 1999/2000 when I got my first A1200. It went in storage after a few years of use and came out about a year ago, since then I've bee hooked

Hope you enjoy your stay.

Hi Alexou, and welcome tro EAB!

Get that A1200 from your parents' home and get it fired up ASAP. You'll be glad you did!
