Am utterly shocked I wasn't already a member on here, but...
Originally from Ireland, grew up with an A500+ and was massively into the trading and demo scene back then until I discovered these things called "girls" and then it all went to pot.
Now living over in the San Francisco area, and when the 40s hit a few years back got myself the dream A1200 setup. Sat gathering dust, sold it to a German fella who cried openly when he saw it. 6 years later, bought another A1200 which also sat gathering dust, which I sold last year.
And now here's me aged 47 and getting itchy again... this time though, think I'll be making @mattsoft's A600 MISTer project!
