I must say, what a great blog fitzsteve!

What do you use your A4000 for that your other Amiga's can't do?

Thanks for the kind words

To be honest other than the Tocatta recording in 16bit it doesn't really do anything more than say my A1200T or A4000 Mirage Pro Tower but I just love the standard A4000D look, it's such a nice setup to have ready to use

I tend to do my work with Floppy Disks on the A4000, I know it's a little overpowered for such a task but the Floppy Drive is excellent in this one, perfect results with reading/writing ADF's

I really need to setup Octamed and have a play with that, and other software that will use the soundcard. I'll blog on that once I learn the ropes!

And it still always feels like a 'real' Amiga whereas these aftermarket Towers tend to loose some of the Amiganess once you build them up

Speaking of the learning curve, for my PPC Amiga's I've picked up a copy of Tornado 3D, I hear it's really complicated but I want to have a go at rendering some 3D stuff with it, wish me luck

Thanks for reading & again for the positive feedback.

Steve.

Thanks for the kind words, sorry I missed your post!

ADF's to floppy is quite straight forward so didn't have any planned, if you need some help you can always PM me or post here at EAB

It's been a long time but I've found some time today to publish a new article for my blog:

http://www.fitzstevesamigaworld.co.uk/?p=107

I hope to bring more frequent updates, especially with all the new and exciting kit coming to the Amiga, specifically A500/A600 Turbo Boards.

I'm hoping to get my hands on a Beta ACA500 to review

Hi Folks,

Some of you might have read this story already as I published it over 10 chapters here and at EAB however I'm adding it to my blog and thought those who missed it first time round might like to read about my return to the Amiga scene and the journey that saw me build up my Amiga collection.

Chapter 1 is here:

http://www.fitzstevesamigaworld.co.uk/?p=139

I hope you enjoy, I'm also going to try and be more active with news and reviews. I'm hoping to get hold of the new Rapid USB and a Prisma sound card when they come out and intend to do some reviews and Videos

Thanks for reading!

Steve.

It's just a Wordpress blog, it's the latest version so should be secure.

Problem is in file /wp-content/uploads/montezuma/style.css here:
Code:
body {
	...
	opacity: 				0; 
}
This "hides" the whole content via CSS, the "blank page" effect.

If javascript is enabled, the body gets shown via /wp-content/uploads/montezuma/javascript.js?ver=4.0 after webfont is loaded or finally after page is ready here:
Code:
jQuery(document).ready(function($) {

if( $('body').css('opacity') == 0 ) {
	$('body').css('opacity', 1);
}
So with javascripts disabled, the content will stay "hidden"...

Edit: Thanks for the very interesting blog, read all pages last night :-)

Glad you enjoyed the Blog a4k-oerx

And thanks for explaining the issue with the style sheet, bug in WP maybe?

OT: It's not a bug in WP. Your "theme" wants it exactly this way, without scripts enabled the site will always show up empty...

Reading on...
