Oh yes! I had some discs in my drawer and when I got my A1000 back, I took a look at it. My development system was there and a few sources. Unfortunately my development system is missing a disc, so I can not use it anymore, and I made it myself, so I can also not reconstruct it anymore. What a pity. I had much more discs with source code. but only those few survived. Today, I don't really know anymore what those code did but it's still nice to take a look at it and get reminded of the the times.

Never sold Amiga gear, but traded an A500 and A600.
The A500 I regret as it ended up being a bad deal, but I traded an A600 for an A1000 + original monitor, which I was missing in my collection.
Now that was a deal I dont regret, A1000 are impossible to find around here.

I have to say I think it's worse the second time round, keep onto them for dear life. If I am lucky to get hold of an A1200 again that was in as great condition as the last one will not ever sell... the kidney's going this time lol

P.S. ok technically, it's selling A500, buying A1200, selling A1200, buying A4000..... big break in time... buying A1200 and then selling it... hmmm

Good deal! I regret giving my A1000 away, and last year I finally got one again. And this will definitely never be sold again.

I had 2 A4000T's back in the day, took them to a PC recycling place back in early 2000 what a waste.

Yeah, although I am having fun rebuilding my collection, so there is that. ;-)
I do miss some of the things I sold that I will almost definitely never get back...
Either because of price or availability.
Some games, like Leander or Neuromancer have, for some reason, just become crazy expensive.
Or some hardware, like the HAM-E graphics board from Black Belt Systems.
I actually won that one in a Compuserve chat session back in the day.
Which I thought was great, until I got my Compuserve bill that month... Apparently control wasn't my strong suit. ;-) So I got my HAM-E, but closed my Compuserve account. ;-)
I now have a DCTV (and a Graffiti board), but I doubt I will ever get a HAM-E again.
Not that I need it or would use it much, but for the nostalgia of it...

No major regrets, because these things just happen.

hmm worse, I regret throwing away big box games as a child... my parents should have stopped me

As of late I have had to buy back most of the games I've had as original big box before, pretty irritating

I've had quite a few different Amiga setups and expansions over the years including 500, 500+,600, 1200 including NOS Escom 1200 and ended up slowly selling all of it. Now I'm getting back in to the Amiga and shocked at the prices these days! Most of my Amiga stuff back then was either sold on here or Amibay.

I bought a clean looking boxed A500 recently that I tested for 5 seconds before the PSU blew! The A501 RAM expansion has seen better days too (battery leak). I'm now waiting on a new PSU to see if the Amiga itself is still alive!

I still have quite a few old consoles left, even though I don't really get a lot of time to properly play them.

No major regrets, because this platform helped me run my own online store.
From the very first day I started building my collection I tried not to sell a thing no matter how broke I felt now I feel relieved to keep it all, all those things that bring me to my childhood. In a way I feel emotional attachment to all the Amiga stuff which comprises my small collection

I have the HAM-E board. But then I have over 125 Amigas too so I'm doing OK I guess.
