Sad to see ...

Future Project

Whilst undertaking this update I came across this Amiga 1200 lying on the 
top of a stacked bunch of crates. I have no idea how long she has been 
there. By the side of the Amiga was a box with a hard drive in so I guess
I had thought about mending her.

Strange that I recall the mod to the motherboard but cannot recall testing
the machine. She has been marked badly and keys are missing. As soon as
I can get the update complete I will set to putting matter in hand to get
her up and running again.

I placed a bid for a motherboard on Ebay but felt guilty of robbing 
another potential Amiga used. I have been outbid and will try again
another day.
Happy days.

Battery Check

Entry 1507: Blog: 2

The only barrel left

This was a struggle and one I had not been looking forward to. The only Amiga
that I have that still has the barrel battery is the Amiga 2000HD. When I
obtained the Amiga some ten years ago it was fitted with a new batter. Even
so that is a long time ago.

I managed to dig the machine out from the back of storage and carefully 
opened the case. This machine is rare as it specifically is the model of the
2000 badged as hard drive.

I am convinced the battery is OK though I have set her aside to remove it
when I get the opportunity.

the web site... This has been a long time coming.
