    As its my first post on the "New Classic Amiga"

    A big hi from this Zetr0 guy

    some may know of my post whoring exploits from the EAB, and the uber coolness from OLDSkool, but i don't want you thinking i am anything but special... I am just a regular Zetr0

    wow, its hard to think about it now.... i would of been 13/14 when i first saw and played on an AmigaA500 with 1MB Expansion playing Sword of Sodan i think it was now... man... so long ago... what a game... spanked anything i had seen in the arcades at the time!

    it was about a year after that we got an Atari ST, then promptly an Amiga 500 (with said 1MB upgrade from my uncle).

    Spanked gauntlet, Amour Gideon, SWIV, Super Cars... oh the list is endless...

    my first REAL purchase of an Amiga (as in with my own cash no christmas and borthday prezzy money ) was an A1200, when i was 17/18, i paid 325 at the time which was cheaper than the 425 asking price!!!!...

    OMG what a computer.... my bro bought me a 40MB HDD for my birthday that year, i was in heaven!!!!!!

    I had a coding partion of 5MB (doublespaced to 10MB), a 5 MB boot partion a, game and music partition... great it was!!!

    in 1993, i bought a Gastiener 8MB Ram Card for 120, and enjoyed the full yummyness of Fast Ram and a 33mhz FPU

    wow... anyway yes theres a trip down memory lane....
    If i had a hammer, I would hammer in the morning, i would hammer in the evening, i would hammer all day

    Bah, just when I thought I was safe from Zetr0 Welcome to the site man!

    I got an A500+ when I was five in '91 and it's fair to say the Amiga made a bit of an impression on me
    I've lost my smile again...

    I was around 11-12 years old (I am now 29), and it was an A500. I still use it, and it runs as perfectly as it did the day when I got it.

    (uh-uh, I hope I didn't jinx it now...)

    Saying things like that definitely seem to cause problems.

    A500's are pretty robust though, unless they are stored in the loft and exposed to changing temperature and moisture.

    BTW, welcome to the forum.

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

    I was 11 years and 26 days old when my Dad took delivery of my Amiga, I still have the receipt for it and I just checked it lol, is that really sad or did I know at the time what a seminal moment getting the Amiga 500 would be.

    I've sold my C64 in order to buy an A500. It was thanks to my neighbour and i'll never thank him enough for it...

    14 or 15. I remember begging my parents to buy one because, supposedly, I'd be able to use it for school work. In retrospect, I don't think I've ever used the Amiga for any school-related work at all
