Whoops. I've been reading these forums for 2ish years and at some point I even made an account to keep track of read posts. So here is my late greetings from Orlando. I still spend at least two holidays in Central Texas during the year. I'd take pictures, but you'll just have to imagine my Amigas for now as I'm supposed to be working on paperwork right now. I have an opened NTSC 1K with a matching keyboard that is in sore need of a newly printed floppy eject button, an NTSC 2K with the nice mechanical keyboard and a PAL 500+ that I equipped with a space invader keyboard. Then I have a stock 500 that my sweetheart used as a kid. Oh and I have a second stock 500 that I'm in the process of "fixing".
So I actually married into Amiga. I was born in 85 and grew up with an Atari 2600 and am NES. Didnt get another console until the PS1 was getting a little older. So I have a special place in my heart for chip tunes. We actually were an x86 family and updated pretty regularly.
So it was my partner that grew up with Amiga. Her mom had actually ran and owned an Amiga store. So one of the first times at her house I was admiring some amigas on display and reading their boxes. After booting one on for the first its first time in 15 years, I wouldn't shut up about how impressive they were for their era. So next thing I know I inherited an Amiga 1000 with a matching keyboard, an Amiga 2000 with its space invader mechanical keys and an Amiga 500 Rev 6A that didn't quite boot up. That Amiga 500 is surprisingly beautiful. It's body never yellowed!
So I'll wait until my new monitor arrives for pictures. Hopefully by then I can close up my A1K. It needs a new floppy button. I finally got around to trouble shooting the A500 and it has bad RAM. It's soldered instead of dips so I've been procrastinating. Hopefully this little blub ties you over.
The shop was in Houston, Texas. It was called Computer Age. I have a really thick mouse pad with the name of it. They had a second location maybe close to Dallas. I'll have to ask her and see if she has pictures. She's the family historian and has been editing pictures since the Amiga. I bet she has something.
