I got Lazy today and ordered an Amgia/pico-PSU adaptor.

http://www.ianstedman.co.uk/Amiga/de...x_adaptor.html

Pic: http://www.ianstedman.co.uk/Amiga/de..._connected.jpg

$20aud shipped and less hassles = a good deal imo

I also have Kipper2k's rev5 autoconfig 8mb a500 ram board arriving soon - It has a second socket which will allow me to move the IDE68k away from the keyboard and especially the CPU as i've found having an IDE cable draped across a CPU = overheating after about an hour.

Kipper is selling them via AmiBay and his own site:

This is the PCB for the Rev5 Board:



I intend to install my IDE68k into the horizontal socket above the Ram.

You "NEED" more than one of each Amiga, so find the funds for more and more machines and upgrades!

Yeah I speak from experience....... I'm in the enviable place of having too much Amiga stuff

Forgot the 1960 monitor hooked up to one of my A1200, NEC 3D hooked to another A1200 when I get new house organised.

Yeah, I do have a few too many Amiga monitors, as said previous, some in shed for storage now and I have not even checked they work!!

Well, if you ever drive past Benalla, Ned Kelly country in north east Vic I might donate a 1084 to a worthy Amiga user

But postage would not be the same as face to face show all my cool Amiga + Commodore stuff to another user

And you might end up with some extra's if you had a car to fill with bits n pieces!
Got a box or 3 filled with C64's n 1541-11's etc
