View Full Version : My Amiga on Amibench
09-02-2003, 12:50 PM
I finally did it, I put my Amiga 4000/040 on Amibench.
Why Amibench and not e-bay ? Well, I'm kind of a reluctant seller at the moment. I will see what kind of offers I get, if any. Maybe it won't be worth it, then I can keep my Amiga. On the other hand it really has just been taking deskspace here, only occasionally used for image storage, not really worth keeping it for that. Anyway, it's on there so if anyone cares to make an offer...

I wouldn't mind sending to the UK as such. It would add to the cost I guess, the amiga with everything in it must way at least 10kg, closer to 15kg I estimate, so that would cost some €75/50UKP just to send it over.
So are you really from Ghent?
I thought I was the only amiga fan left in Ghent & area :-)

aaah, belgium is still alive ! :-P
are you going to get an A1 or just get out of Amiga?

Yep, I'm living in Gent. I'm kind of playing the waiting game on the Amiga One for now. I have been using my A4000 till recently, mainly because of the DPS PAR inside, good for video editing, but things move on... Who knows if the new Amiga range is flying high like the original used to I'm sure I'll have one.
I have a PAR too, and I always thought it was great hardware without good software. I'm selling it here in the 'classifieds', together with my toccata as I have a Draco now for my video work. I also gave up school out of pure frustration so I won't be doing any video work anymore in the coming months.
A shame that, now that I found another amiga guy in my neigbourhood, he's selling his amiga.

Is it spelled Gent ot Ghent?
Or does that depend on if you're a walloon or a fleming?

Kind of depends. The official name (in Dutch) is Gent since it's a Flemish city where Dutch is the official language. Walloons call it Gand (in French, their official language) and English speakers call it Ghent. Real fun for tourists driving on our Belgian highways looking for Ghent and only finding pointers to either Gand or Gent.
Good news is Amiga is Amiga in all those languages :-D
