Hi folks,

I'm Fred, aka OldAmigan or AmigaOldie on most other Amiga sites.

I got into the Amiga after buying my son an A600 one Christmas. He moved on to the PC (a retrograde step) and I still have the A600, along with a second one, two A1200's, one of which I'm towerising, an A500 and a CDTV, plus I have an AmigaOne XE G4 which has given me no end of grief over the years.

I also have MorphOS on a Mac Mini and a Powermac G4 and AROS on a Dell 10" Netbook.

I have one of Steve Jones' Checkmate cases which is still in it's box, waiting for the eventual release of the A1222Plus.

I don't tend to post too much but avidly check out all the Amiga sites several times each week.

Hi OldAmiga - welcome! Thanks for joining.
one of which I'm towerising
I would surely love to see that.

What's your son's opinion these days about your hobby? And when you got that original A600 for him, was it one of those gifts where you think, "Oh you he (I) will love this!" =)

I might have done that on a few occasions with my own kids. Every year.

Welcome. I would love to see your progress on the A1200 Tower. I have thought of doing that myself but too many projects on my plate at the moment and I never seem to finish them all.

Welcome. That is a nice collection of Amigas. What activity do you like to do with them?

Hi OldAmigan. I'm just across the sea from you in Ireland. Do you ever go to the meetings in Glasgow?
