  1. Watched the first 3 so far and enjoying it. Some powerful moments where there is little to no dialogue and no music which really had some punch to them and felt like they conveyed genuine tension instead of that...pause for the count of five... crap on a lot of other shows. The saddest part was that this is all well within my lifetime (I was about 10 or 12 when the AIDS monolith advert came out) and looking back at the prevailing attitudes from the establishment and people in general is still painful to see.
  2. @Nathan Wind It's the Discovery pack if I remember correctly. Still have the box in the loft but the ST itself is currently under my desk so I can plug it in for quick blasts on Wizball. I've had it since new, probably 1988 or so and it's totally stock. It's the 520STFM model. I was actually pulling Anne Summers leg when I suggested it but to be honest I probably would part with it. I should also say I have a pile of boxed games and plenty of 'blank' discs for both.
  3. @Anne Summers sorry I wasn't clear but yes, I would sell the a1200. Let me know and I can take some pics for you.
  4. Fair enough. I hear you on the pricing. So much of my childhood was sold for pennies, given away or just thrown out in those dips when something just a little old becomes worthless. If I'd known then about the fall and then rise in retro/collectible/gaming stuff I'd be a wealthy man now! The a600 I've had since new, can't quite remember when, probably early 90's. I then wanted a hard drive so bought an a1200 model. It's not boxed but I decided to reacquaint myself with it and bought a CF card and ram upgrade to run WHDLoad. These seem to go for more like £300+ though. Again if you'
  5. I hadn't thought too much about it but looking at sold listings on eBay the Wet and Wild boxed A600s go for about £200. If you're interested I can get it out, check it works and get you some pics. We can go from there. Appreciate if it is not what you were looking to spend. Unboxed bare ones seem to be £125 or there abouts.
  6. @Anne Summers what are you looking for? Buy or sell? I recommend amibay but if you're looking to buy I might look at selling one of mine.
  7. 8 posts in 6 months and all pretty much the same. I hate putting newbies down on forums so hopefully this is just someone who doesn't get the etiquette of the forum and it's not representative of their normal style. I'm sure @Old Nerd will take a more contributory part in the conversation and not just shout his promo's.
  8. Must be around that age. I started playing City of Thieves a few nights ago. I'd forgotten how good these were. Might actually be able to win and complete some of them now!
  9. Probably about 12 years back now but I saw a plastic tub full of familiar green spines outside a charity shop. Picked the whole lot up, matched and and asked how much for the lot. Can't remember what it was in the end, maybe £20 for an almost full run upto mid thirties. I'd sold my own collection having "grown up" and this was too good an opportunity to pass.
  10. All of this is what frustrates me with the Amiga scene. I would give real money for a Krikzz style drag & drop, plug & play solution instead of all these fudges. I have an a600 and a1200. Put a CF card with WHD into the 1200 to then discover you need more RAM. Add more RAM and then realise some of the images aren't working or just crash out and I can't just plug the CF Card into a PC and drag a replacement image over like most other retro systems. Even PS2 or Wii HDD installs were way simpler than this. Everything is a ball ache. Even over my preference to play
  11. Will this really see the light of day given how protective the Amiga community is on things? I mean, it's not like Krikzz's (excellent) products where you can pretty much drag and drop ROMs (of games you own of course) onto it and they just work. Look at things like WHDLoad, Amigan's seem to be a bit particularly protective about Kickstarts and such which has always made me feel the wider reach of the system is being held back by a minority trying to wring some money our of and old platform. It's absolutely retro and I wish them well but suspect it'll be snarfed by Kickstart issues
  12. Might be wrong but aren't B&O CRT TV's generally shallower than 'normal' models? Might be a way to get the screen size and still fit on your desk.
  13. Am I thinking of the same Andy? He was also in the print business so usually has some vinyl banners and other prints on his stall. I think he lives around the Blackpool area, I see him at all the shows and have a bit of a chat, his wife also does car boots and all the dross that isn't good enough for Andy's stall ends up there.
  14. https://the-eye.eu/public/Books/computerarchive.org/ Some retro mag scans here. Large but if you're missing them in a collection may be useful.
  15. I read the Twins books about 20 yrs ago but they weren't memorable in the slightest.
