Turbo RAM card supports Power Computing
CD ROM, 2 x external SCSI drives, Iomega
ZIP drive. Ethernet PCMCIA networked.
Power Computing HD external floppy.
Vidi Amiga and TechnoSoundTurbo
all running off the Microvitec.
Trinkets are like lucky charms and
if work for me never leave my side.
Lisa Leob has been there since I
successfully installed my first
accelerator. The wrestler has been
there since day 1... No idea. Don't
know where it came from and I certainly
don't like wrestling. He's my Mr T
and tells me to get it together when
The games in the disk box are the best
cover disk games ever released.
Lisa Doig was the first Andromeda set
that I burned and was able to use on
the Amiga. Karen Mulder is a my GHOST
animation set.. the first. PPaint is on
that very tiny CD which works on the ROM.
And Clara Veiga needs no introduction.
Its a feng shui thing with me. When
everything is working in harmony then
you'd be a fool to move it around.
When the computer is idle I have a
DPaint animation running in the background.
I have hundreds of them. The one shown
is Clara Veiga. I just grab off the DVD
using VidiAmiga and edit in DPaint and
run from DOpus. Much better than seeing
a Workbench screen.
Essential DPaint commands.
I tend to only use ZIP disks. Mostly
cus I have so many Amigas with SCSI
and also I have a number of PCs with
ZIP disks. With FAT and CrossDOS I can
read PC format disks and so move stuff
around so quickly. Also.. Amiga files
are so small. I can copy my whole WB
to one ZIP as a back up. So easy.
I have all my essential reading material
located behind this Amiga.
When switching on the last thing I power
up is the Amiga. I have the Canon Bubblejet
there but never use it. Have never used it.
Fast enough for me with oodles of RAM
Like I have enough VOLUMES... I have
to have a small book with all the names.
The computer is also networked to PCs.
Amiga 1200 04
KS 39.106 WB 39.23 and recently
Tumoon got the new 2.5" 40GB drive
and even the Apollo 1260... Seriously.
Tumoon was the subject of a series
of recent blogs so if interested
then flick through this months blogs.
Amiga 1200 05
TANK aptly named given that I bought
this from a soldier on Bovington Tank
Camp. Cost me £200 in 1995 and came
with a busted floppy and PCMCIA port.
The guy had small kids and they had
been stuffing things into the slots.
39.106 and 39.39. Bare machine
with no hard drive.
This was my second Amiga 1200
and once I repaired the floppy
drive I played games on the computer.
My first game if I recall was the
very wonderful Hilsea Lido.
OK that was Amigas 1 thro' to 5.
Only another 25 to go....
