Anyone into NIBIRU, RED KACHINA, RED DRAGON (i.e., the return of the Red Planet)?

A funny thing happened on the way to see what comets were appearing in the year 2011.

A little background first: back when I was on Moobunny (Cyberbunny Amiga), someone (I think it was Dammy or Atheist2 or someone else) had asked me what I thought about Nibiru. I didn't know a thing about it then, and said so.

Flash-forward to 2011, way after I had left the Amiga Community and anything Amiga, to pursue other things, there I was on the net looking for what new comets were...

What should've been the AmigaOne theme song (in a parallel world)

Posted 08-06-2013 at 01:48 PM by EyeAm

In an alternate reality, or parallel world (no computer pun there, with 'parallel'), what should've been the AmigaOne theme song, playing in the background of the TV commercial that featured (besides the computer and feature list) the smiling faces of Amigans from various Amiga shows and conventions...is this song:

It's a shame things didn't get that far.

Solid-State Drive (SSD) in a Classic AMIGA machine.

I posted in a forum reply the suggestion of trying this, but the more I think about it, the more intriguing it becomes.

With an IDE-to-SATA adapter, one should be able to put a Solid-State Drive (SSD) into a Classic AMIGA machine. The only question I'd have is one of Firmware or Software Drivers, as the machine would be expecting something with sectors and drive arm, and so forth. Hmm.

At any rate, if that barrier were removed, I can't imagine how much faster a Classic...

I once installed Microsoft Windows on a Workbench 2.0-based Amiga 2000.

When a hard drive goes bad ~ Saving the drive or data. A TIP.

"When a hard drive goes bad ~ Saving the drive or data. A TIP."

This experience actually took place in the PC realm, but when talking at least IDE or SATA (neverminding SCSI, but I don't see why it wouldn't work--just that I know how much harder it is to find an external SCSI-to-USB external drive enclosure), this should work the same on the Amiga side.

The long story made short: Quite awhile back, I had an internal SATA hard drive 'go bad'. Bad sectors, what-have-you,...
