  1. Hello.

    My name is David, I just stumble on your site (better late than never).
    In the old good days I have been supporting A500\1000 users in Israel, Still miss the time when 1MB of memory was more than enough to run any application.
    Today I hold a wireless communication business and radio chip development.
    I will be happy to join your club + support as possible.

  6. Hi all,

    Just been pointed here on IRC from Rockape.
    Have an A1500 with a GVP II board fitted with a 52meg Quantum Fireball and 45meg junk Seagate. I say junk because I have to bang the drive hard to get it to spin up!
    So, how do I join?



  7. i have a considerable amount of amigas ,add on’s plus software ,user manuals and memory for expansion boards open to offers if any of your members interested.


  8. I’ve old amiga discs to get rid of, free to collect, if any enthusiast could use.

  9. Although I am now a PC user, I still own an Amiga A1200. This excellent machine has been invaluable to me over years, I created my own Electronics CAD program, well basically Dpaint 4, with some modifications.

    I have all my Circuit diagrams stored as IFF files, and would welcome any help to Transfer them to my PC, for future use and reference. ( I can then start working on my Projects again!)

    If any of your Members can help me achieve this, I would be very grateful and let them have All, my Amiga stuff, including: My A1200/Accelerator board & Loads of CDROMS. (Including: many Original Games etc.)

    Thinking about it, would it be best to Attend one of your meetings to discuss this in more detail!.

    If I am welcome to attend your next available meeting. Please contact me, as I would find it Very interesting and maybe my input could be beneficial to other members!.

    kind regards,

    Stephen Spencer.

  12. Hi Stephen, don’t know if you got a response to your question? I’m a fellow Amigan & just passing thru’ this board & not a member. I’m sure there’s far better advice out there but i would mention a number of Amiga programs like AdPro, Photogenics & a few more that will handle converting your iff files on your Amiga to jpg format. You then need to get them onto your PC. I assume you don’t have an Amiga email set-up? Otherwise you could email yourself the files. If you have an Amiga cd burner you could transfer them that way. You could get a PCMCIA card for your A1200 (or a CF card). Copy files onto it and transfer to PC with a PCMCIA reader for your PC. I don’t know if the PC will recognise the PCMCIA card thou’ without using something like Amiga Forever? Someone brighter than me could let you know. Additionally I believe early versions of Photoshop can read iff files. Your would still need PCMCIA/cd burner and possibly Amiga Forever to get them on your PC. would have a lot of what you might want. Hope helps, I am a bit of an Amiga lightweight…

  13. Additional – just copied an iff onto a CF card via Amiga PCMCIA slot. Didn’t bother to convert it to jpg. Popped it onto my Mac and Photoshop opened the iff without any trouble. Assume it would be the same on a PC.
