    Those games were pretty popular here, you never saw them before??? Wasted Dreams is very good co-op game. Try it if you never did.

    The feeble penises of the repressed homosexuals at Codex shrivel before the might of Commodore. In their spite and malice they try their best to keep the Truth hidden in midst of the deluge of popamole threads.

    Just curious as to whether anyone here has tried/bought one of the new "Amiga" machine(s?) like the AmigaOne X1000.

    I hope they'll still be making Amigas when I can afford one.

    Yeah, I picked up a perfect (looks new inside and out) A1200 on ebay a couple of years ago - coincedentally, from a guy who lived just a few streets away from me. I've since added internal CF cards, network adapter and a 68030 accelerator.

    Also, you can also still buy refurbished A1200's from places like amigakit.com.

    Yeah, Jim was a natural educator. I remeber reading one of his early programming books (Learning Machine Code on the C-64 - actually, it might have been the first I ever read) - he had the rare ability to explain complex topics in an easy to understand way. Great man. R.I.P.

    I'm too young to remember Amiga, but tell me: Was that Amiga that took 20/30 mins to load a game and during that time there was static screen like that:

    ?

    So it was Amiga or not? My older sister had that - I only remember very long loading and static screen. Geez.

    I can't say that - I'm not an American. Only Americans consider their sisters hot.

    no, looks more like ZX Spectrum, Amiga had a blue hand with a discette.

    like this:



    also, pics of your sister.

    Thanks Lazur - I think it was ZX Spectrum.

    And, really, you expect me to post pics of my sister? :D Nah, maybe another time. But I can post some pics of nice girls if you want to (non-sister).

    I'm not liking Velothi. Disses Luzur, does not post pics of his hot older sister, and is generally a fag.

    I feel dumb bros, a few years ago I rescued an Amiga 500 from a dumpster (pretty sure it didn't work) but I think I threw it away or donated it to a computer recycling place. Probably the recyclers.... Maybe one of the computer recycler dudes recognized it and enshrined it somewhere. Dammit, I hope so....

    Some boring, non-sister, nitpick goes there:
    ZX Spectrum doesn't has that type of loading screen and loading time. Average loading time is about 6 minutes per game, not to mention there's should be some pretty loading screen (or, at least, name of game and screen border full of crazy bars). 20 minutes per game is more suitable for 8-bit Atari, but then, normal, blue boot screen (usually with withe exclamation sign in the upper, left corner of screen) should be display. Very, very old computer turn off screen while loading program (like ZX80), but none of I know, display just white noise. Are you sure, you are remembering things correctly correct? Or maybe, some strange stuff like famous Meritum does that screen magic while loading, dunno...
