    Cool Rocking it 95 style.....

    So heres my latest machine.... in all its beigeness...

    6921696104_a83a49e398.jpg

    A1200, 3gb hdd (soon to be changed for a compact flash card) 68030 @28mhz, 16mb ram, 2 external floppys...

    Been waiting ages to dig it out of a mates loft, finally dragged it all out last night... as this is what I actually picked up..

    6921694974_973168015e.jpg

    500 or so disks, the a1200, 1084s monitor, a few originals, An amiga 500 with some ram in it, 2 external floppy drives, and a500 + with what looks like 4mb added to it, an external 42mb scsi hdd for them (not looked to see how much ram is in it) and another sdecar ram expansion.

    Rather hapy with it all, 1200 is playing mods as I type this, having trouble with some of the discs,just tried 2 differant original copys of new zealand story and neither works

    I remember my A500 well.

    Good times, although I probably couldn't count the hours I spent playing Leaderboard and FA18 Interceptor

    Flying under the golden gate bridge for the first time in FA18, classic!! (hmm was it the golden gate bridge, I know there was a bridge, hey ho!!), landing on the aircraft carrier!!.. amazing.. takes me right back..
