    Surprise package arrived today

    In the post today I had a jiffy bag arrive. I hadn't ordered anything that was due to arrive in that shaped package so was a bit confused about what it might be. It felt like a DVD/Game case and the address label said its origin was from Italy.

    So I quickly opened it up to see what was inside, and what did I find?

    A copy of Amiga Forever 2008 Premium Edition!

    This came straight from Cloanto according to the address.

    So did someone buy me a copy and I've received it as a nice surprise? Or have Cloanto sent me the latest version for free? Whichever way, it was a very nice surprise and I will be testing out the new additions to this latest version when I get chance.

    So now I've received the 2005 and 2008 editions to date, completely free. Very nice!

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    You lucky man! That must have been a nice suprise for you. Maybe it's a gift from someone?

    Who is Harrison's secret admirerer?

    I've got the latest version of Amiga Forever myself. Haven't used it all that much, but I've noticed quite a few improvements over the old version. I'm sure you will enjoy playing around with it.

    I was planning on doing a review of the package at some point, so if they did send it for that reason I've happy to.

    Cool. Send it out to the world. Give us free stuff and we'll write a favourable review.

    I never said anything about a favourable review! It will be honest and point out that WinUAE is free!
