Question What's the cheesiest thing you wrote on your miggy?

I wrote "Amiga forever..." with a fat silver-coloured pen on my 1200... just under the LEDS...

Oh, yes, I was young indeed... and cheesy...

I did!

Actually it was at the time the amiga was quickly dying of being too much rammed in the ass by the PeePee world... I was feeling low for my little machine, and it was my own childish way of showing support.

I would have NEVER done such a thing...

Hiwever here's an interesting one,... There was thsi tv show where thet boosted the Amiga seriously... they had a couple of A500s and they had game tourneys, DPIII tutorials ETC.

All their A500s had the embossed AMIGA word painted with black permanent marker so the name would stand out a lot more on the screen

Come on guys don't be so harsh on Mr Softy ..
Whilst I never wrote anything on my 500, I recall while soldering the 14Mhz hack, I managed to drop the soldering iron on the keyboard!!! I was really pissed at the time because it made a mark down the case and into one of the keys... wow... does that bring back some chuckles and memories...

When I first witnessed cracktro's and what not, I decided I should adopt a cool nickname as well. I chose "Shenanigan".

In order to affirm my coolness, I scribbled the word right under my A500 leds. But alas, I failed, and misspelt my cool nickname.

So I barred it. But my felt tip pen ran out of ink. I was very happy when I got myself an a12oo later, so that finally my eyes were no longer to be distracted by my puberal vandal acts.

Later nicknames were ao "Flint" (some dwarf out of a D&D novel) and (laugh not) "kn0b".

my joystick experiment

before my amiga 2k i have now i had another
(iīve ranted about this before)
i had this broken joystick took off the cable and played with the bare wires. Apart from the directions and the fire button there was an extra wire and i tested it .... i really shouldnt have
the mouse port never worked again on that amiga
it was dismantled and most extra parts were put in my newer 2000
the joy was one of them atari suction cup joysticks
well anyway itīs the dumbest thing iīve ever done with a miggy almost close enough


this inappropriate post origins from an eye flicker

I didn't vandalize my Amiga, but I scratched my "kewl" BBS alias into the plastic case of my C64 breadbox.

"Ninjasbane".

Considering how attached I was to that computer at the time, I considered it a painless, coward's tattoo.

I also Made an RSI demo maker demo for local puter shop they liked it and actually gave me a box of free disks cause i put their logo in it which i drew in Dpaint. Next time i went back was all new staff at the shop again i gave them a second demo with a better logo and they almost laughed me out of the shop

I always type in "arse" whenever i get asked on copy protection

On topic: I ripped off and rolled up my C= A1200 badge when they went bust as i found the whole situation so irritating. (sounds weird now, but i was a stupid teen at the time).

Thankfully i didnt bin it. I shortly after regretted my actions and unrolled the thing and stuck it back on. I still feel like such an idiot for doing that, as its now looks kinda beat up...

I didn't write anything with a pen on mine, but I did put a few stickers with my group's name on it and some slogans we had, and that's about it. And I did write some cheesy scroll texts on it, if that counts?
