Midlife crisis?

Hi all,

SHort introduction. My real name is Evert, I was born in the Netherklands, but have also lived in England an now in Turkey.
A few years ago I lost all my childhood-stuff in a fire including my VIC-20, C64, A500 and A1200 including all books, disks, periphirals, etc.
I find myself missing them more an more, which I guess is partly due to the fact that I am entering the age range where a midlife crisis is imminent?

Anyway, I decided to download some emulators and scavenge sites for adf's in order to rebuild my systems virtually.
I always enjoyed programming my C64 and my A500. More than anything I did later in life on PCs. I found that I have forgotten a lot though. But I am thinking it would be fun to try and backport some modern software to these systems.
We'll see.

Any software created now for the Amiga would be great, homebrew on Speccy and the 64 is fairly strong, the Amiga lacks new titles!

And its not a midlife crisis... its just a full circle!

Midlife crisis is a concept invented by marketeers for people to waste their money in nonsense.

As the Amiga is not a nonsense, it's a way of living, I can assure you LPent that your problem is way bigger: it's called nostalgia. And in Amiga terms it's a disease. Ask THB.

Welcome aboard.
