Hi everyone

Hi from Dundee, Scotland.
I got my first Amiga 1200 some years ago from a car boot sale and had a few years of great computing with it until I moved to the darkside and got a Windoze box, and unfortunately due to the then cost of upgrading the 1200 to a point where the net would be enjoyable to use the Windoze machine was used more and more until the 1200 became nothing more than an ornament and was eventually sold. A couple of years ago I then managed to get my hands on some more Amiga equipment but due to space limitations my return to the Amiga scene was very short lived and the items sold on again :/
I am now in a better situation and Im looking to get back into things once more and presently playing around with Amiga Forever 2010... gives me a chance to play around... but just doesnt have that Amiga feel :/ So got a few adverts here and there hoping to pick up some hardware and once more become part of the Amiga family Although it seems to be a bit needle in the haystack kind of thing especially in my locality whereas I remember when the systems were always coming up for sale, I guess thats ebay etc for you.
I look forward to being a member here and hope to contribute in some small way, but will likely be asking more than answering questions lol.
Daz.

Welcome to the board of Amiga lunatics Dazx!

Have you ever thought of using the very favoured WinUAE emulator.. I know it's not the same as the real thing, but it's extremely brilliant

Get the latest here http://www.winuae.net/

Hi - welcome, space is a problem when you have probably a next gen console, pc and then if you want to go retro - all that old gear. Its a nightmare trying to manage it all.

Emulation is good but obviously the real thing is the best.

Hope you enjoy your new adventures on the Amiga again!

Yup this is an old thread, but Ive been missing for a year that has had some interesting developments over the last few months for me I am now no longer having to rely on emulation for my Amiga fix as Ive managed to acquire 4 machines in varying condition the best being an A1200 030 28mhz which is nice and white... a very yellow A1200 and A600, and a not too shabby 500+ with a 2MB sidecart but no trapdoor expansion, it has had a little battery leakage which has damaged the pcb and some components :/
