Long-time Amiga user here, started with a TI99/4A computer in the early 80's, sold it to get a Commodore 64 a few years later, then sold that to get an Amiga 1000, then sold that to get an A500, which I kept until the year 2000.
While other teenagers got into trouble doing typical teen stuff, I somehow ended up in a small cracking crew that never got a lot of visibility..
TWC, or Toxic Waste Crew. My job was simple. Download 0-24h warez from European BBS' and upload them on American boards to build up credits. At first, I racked up crazy long distance telephone bills that I was barely able to pay with my minimum wage job, but then learned about black boxes, bridges and other fun ways of doing free long distance calls.
Bur I digress...
Fast-forward to 2015, where the nostalgia bug bit me. I purchased an old NES at a flea market and the rest was history. I then wanted a Sega Genesis (or Mega Drive for you in Europe), then the original Playstation, then the SNES, and Atari 2600... 5 years later I have 27 gaming consoles, a MAME arcade cabinet and a half dozen retro computers which include my two absolute fave, my beloved Amiga 1000 and Amiga 500.
The A1000 is pretty much stock, with the exception of having an DKB Insider II board. I plan on adding a Kickstart switcher in it and keep the rest original. The A500 however has more upgrades. It's a rev 6a board equipped with a TF536, Gotek drive and DF0/DF1 selector.
So yeah! I usually frequent the Commodore Amiga group on Facebook but hear great things about this board, so here I am!
