I'm so stoked right now, works great!

Where did you find the diagram or did you do it yourself? Makes so much more sense than the one in the PDF :-)

Ahhh thanks in part goes to you for providing the link. cjcliffe big thumbs up!

Now just waiting on my 1200 for the HxC to be installed in :-) My motherboard is still with Amigakit :-(

I've ordered a NOS a1200 from Petro so I'll be starting on that one day too.

I'll have to sell my a500+ to fund it tho so if anyone wants a mint a500+ with KS 1.3/3.1, WB 3.1, 68010, 2MB Chip-Ram, 8MB Fast-Ram, IDE68K w/ 4GB CF-HDD im selling it for $200aud + postage (Aus Preferred) which is actually less money than I've put into it.

Was told by the other half that I had to sell my A500 plus. Put it on the local trademe auction site.

Didn't sell (what a shame) so have put it all away on a shelf and she's forgotten about it.

But wanting to sell it to fund a 68060 card :-)

LOL one of the guys I know who flies model aeroplanes, he takes a monthly photo of his wives shoes closet. Every time there is a new pair of shoes he goes and buys a new plane

There is no arguments with photographic proof!

Hmmm I wonder if I have a spare 1200 Aussie keyboard in the shed? Probably

This bad boy is now officially mine!



Petro confirmed He got all the funds this morning and yesterday I ordered the 16mhz aca1220 & RTC module for it too! (wife is sooo gonna kill me but totally worth it!) I just need to get a CF Adapter now and I've emailed Kipper2k for one of his external modules.

I asked Petro to sign the bottom of mine because after looking him up I think it'll be a nice touch to add to my a1200's history and value to me.

Try a find the netgear MA401 wireless pcmcia card, only WEP protection which can slightly compromise your network but wireless Amiga 1200 is lots of fun!

I've got wired Ethernet everywhere (cat6) so I might find a wired network card instead - I've got a couple xircom cards lying around but I think I saw something about them not being any good?

Actually that reminds me, I do have a wireless extender that is wep only so I could create a widely network just for my miggy
