    Sound a bit like when I'm at school with everyone talking about their Core Duo systems. And one person who has a laptop with 90 gigs of memory (not RAM) (or the other way round. i can't remember). And various people saying that the 8MHz processor that was in a system we looked at in ICT coursework was crap.

    Anyway, I have been visiting the ClassicAmiga site since about 2002. It was definately before the forums were made though. Found it because I found harrison's original page via Google I think and it had a link to classicamigacom.

    I posted a few times on the Amiga gameFAQS boards and then one day Harrison popped up and started posting. Then he started his own site and I ended up posting there more and more frequently until at one point I did virtually nothing but make silly posts and topics on the old boards.

    And what you guys have said about gameFAGS is 100% true, it used to be a great place but now the boards just are not worth bothering with. Although it is possible that the boards there have only gotten a little worse, but I have a much lower tolerance for them than I did all those years ago (indeed, the internet seemed new and wonderous back then, instant communication with people all over the world.... now it is just another easy resource, taken for granted).

    I was spending a lot of time looking for pc abandonware, and stumbled onto a link to classicamiga.
    This is not a signature

    Lurked on the GameFAQs Amiga forum for a while, but never posted. I had the link to Classicamiga saved in my bookmarks, but didn't decide to sign up until very recently. I guess I was bored

    I'm glad you finally decided to sign up, as the Gamefaqs amiga board is very lame and there are many blockheads lurking around. And it's also good to see new members registering and also posting something.

    Maybe a bit late to this post but I found this awesome site because of a mention on game central. Thanks to whoever wrote in I now have a spiffy A1200 with a HD and an unnatural desire to buy upgrades...

    Well it looks like I'm the new kid. I came across the site doing a google search for AmigaOS.
