20 year dream comes true...

Hello to all,

i'm Nikos from Greece, i work as a software applications engineer and i am 36 years old.
20 years ago i had a dream to get me an Amiga 500. It was impossible at that time though, couldn't even discuss it with my parents, that i had to give the Amstrad 6128 for a new system! School program was heavy as well...

Anyway i got myself one A500 and a A1200 with lots of other stuff and i'm catching my dream.

Nice to find you!

Hello from the UK. Glad that you are finally getting to live out your dream with the Amiga. You can't go far wrong with what you have bought.

After a 20 year wait, it must seem like you've struck gold with that little lot!

Could you give us some details about the "lots of other stuff"?

Logitech mouse (c) 1991 sealed, Alfapower Alfadata 500 sealed, 4MB zip RAM, amigakit RGB to SCART cable, spare mouses, APower PSU, competition pro joystick, LOGO language pack, ADF transfer kit, CF cards, CF to IDE converters, another 2 MB chip ram for the A500, missing hex screws, xanthan gum. I hope i didn't forget anything... All of them came as individual buys, didn't come with the Amigas.
And i'm after many other things especially scandoublers or RGB to VGA converter systems.

Welcome to EAB, nice that you finally made your dream come true. There might be a few other Greeks around here too.

That lot should keep you busy for a while.

Don't forget to keep us updated as you progress, with pictures as well, if possible.
