    Ars Technica aricle on history of the Amiga

    Ars Technica are running an article on the history of the Amiga, in a number of parts.

    So far, it has been quite an interesting read, maybe not quite as dry as many of the other articles on this subject.

    Ars Technica, Amiga history

    Also, check out that dude's (Jay Miner) beard! Awesome

    I saw that, they also posted the news at Amiga-News, the german site. Jay Miner's beard looks like it's a fake, like someone cut out his face and pasted it into this picture.

    Jay Miner definitely had a mad beard and would have felt right at home in many German towns. Maybe we should all try to grow one so we can become truly one with the Amiga and it's heritage!

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

    It looks like that in all the pictures I've seen of him. Just a mad sun tan and lots of careful beard trimming involved!

    I bet all the other Amiga sites are discussing this article seriously, while we are laughing the guy's beard.

    That is why this is the only Amiga website worth sticking with

    That could be, but we take some subjects from the lesser serious side, which I prefer.

    Well, it is a good article, but most of us here already know the sum of its contents so we can concentrate on the more serious aspects of it's content such as the realism of facial hair.

    You can count me out.
    Started to grow a beard very recently.
    Although it's been pissing it down lately, it's still been quite warm.
    My face was itchy as hell.
    Always grown a beard in the winter in the past.
    Now I know why.

    I've gotta feeling that might be much more pain than shaving.

    Veet: Rips the hair right outta your face...
