Hi from Wiltshire

Hi there.
I was such an Amiga fanboi from about 1989 to 2001 mostly enjoying watching the fruits of the demoscene and well, using the miggy as my personal computer.
Albeit never really that good a programmer I did find I used to while away many hours on small projects, but it was fun.

I have been watching demo`s on youtube for the past few years and finally got sick of the fuzzy pixelised artifacted mess that was once my childhood joy...

Miggy 1200 now hooked up to a projector and ok-ish hifi performing as good as it did in the past. A chunk of productions do look quite dated and well, frankly pretty crap, but those that have stood the test of time, damn they still make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. (desert dream!!!!)

Anyways, been gathering some old hardware so expect plenty of questions!

Regards

Hi Wolfy, and welcome to EAB!

Bring on the questions, and spill the beans about the 'old hardware' you've been gathering...

Ahh, ye olde stomping grounds. I lived in Keevil and Great Hinton near Trowbridge for a few years as a kid.

Welcome to EAB. ;-)
