I'll echo the welcome. I too, use an Amiga A1000 - pretty much like yours but with a 2Mb RAM expansion.
It's always good to have new blood here.

Welcome! You're never odd compare to me.

I'm a kind of person who wants to promote the Amiga scene across South Korea and I only used AROS in my whole life.

@RepoOne

Welcome to Amiga.org. I was about 35 when I purchased my first Amiga.

All the best with your new system.

Obviously then, the next person to join from the US will be an even one...

I used my first computer at age 3 (in 1996), a 33Mhz 486 with 8MB of RAM. I was instantly hooked, and used that computer up until 1999, when my family moved to a new HP Pavilion with a 500Mhz AMD K6-2. So, I've been into computers my entire life.

Some of the things that really stuck with me were chiptunes, 2D games, and some awesome productions of the demoscene. After looking into it, I found that many of these things were strongest in the Amiga scene. This made me interested in the Amiga, and perhaps getting a hold of one.

I've always had a strong feeling that I should have been alive (i.e. born ten years earlier) and active during the days where computing still had the "magic" that it did in the late 80s and early 90s. Because I can't teleport to 1990, I have to live the fantasy by collecting old computers.

So I've started a nice collection, I have a Commodore 128, eMac (not that old, but is PowerPC and can run OS Classic), and a variety of 90s PCs. However, the newest addition is the one that I am the most proud of. It is the cornerstone of my collection.

Behold, my Amiga 1000. Got it for $20 after posting a Craigslist ad looking for Commodore stuff. I promised to take of it, and I shall.





Welcome to the Amiga community!...tried sending you "PM" but for some reason I cannot receive or send "P.M's"...also located in Indiana & might have some excess Amiga stuff for sale or swap...drop me an e-mail when you get a chance!

17 YO - you got an Amiga and you shoulda been born 10 years earlier; this warms the heart. If you like old Tom Waits records I will adopt you.

I have that same A1000 midi interface and I'm using it on an A3000 with an adapter.
