Hi mate. I'm in Fenham. Where are you?
What do you have in mind? I'd certainly be up this. Any excuse for a pint!

Just a mile or so north of the City.

Seems there's only 4 people left in the north east

Hi carvedeye,

I was born in Wallsend Green Hospital and lived in Walker for 13 years before moving to Kenton.

I now live in Lincolnshire but sometimes get a chance to visit my Family time to time.

I can let you know when I`m visiting if you need anything Amiga or maybe just a chat. I have plenty of 3.5inch "small capacity" Hard Drives, cables etc, plus other bits.

Regards, Michael

Do any of you know how to use AMOS? If any of you could teach me how to use it that would be great, we could even make a game(s) together

Greetings from Stockton on Tees

Now then,

Long time Amiga owner, first time post on EAB. I am in possession of an Amiga 1200 with the following additions, 4GB CF Hard Drive with Workbench 3.1, GOTEK USB Emulator drive (a pain in the neck so replacing with internal floppy drive) and have just ordered an accelerator to compensate the hard drive's memory usage.

I currently reside in Stockton on Tees and have asked on FaceBook to see if anyone else from the North East has a trusty Amiga. Unfortunately no one has bothered to reply with a civilised answer. Even though I have grown up around using the Amiga it seems people have given up on it.

It's a fantastic machine and still has plenty of life left in it (with some care and attention). So my question is this, how many of you lot hail from the North East and if so be willing to share some knowledge?

Cheers

Liam
