Guest and Amiga enthusiast Steve, aka 'Steve30' just dropped us a link to some pictures he took at LAG 9. Thanks!
Yes, I have got around to it at last. What with dying of various ailments (colds, hayfever etc...), work (and its associated effects) and then shooting off to London for 5 days, I haven't had a chance to make up any decent excuses for not writing the reports!
Still, here we are. LAG 4 went really well, probably our best meeting yet computing-wise. We managed to get 4 Amigas online via the events wireless thanks to Gaz and Mark's efforts in wrangling with the network and Miami respectively.
We were able to take a quick look at the second beta of the Sputnik web browser for MorphOS (coming soon to OS 4?). It's definitely work in progress but it's getting there!
There were plenty of Amigas of all types, displaying the usual wide array of games, applications and utilities, including 3D rendering, Web Browsers and classic games of Amiga time, like Speedball 2 and Seek & Destroy.
We had a great day, and can't wait to do it all again at the next meeting... speaking of which the next meeting (LAG 5) is pencilled in for June 2nd 2007. Once again we are at the Chamber of Commerce, Outer Cirlce Road, Lincoln. All comers welcome.
Our second meeting was another great gathering of Amiga minds. All those from LAG1 (MacMiga, rockape, Robert17, gaz-god and cyka), we also welcomed another new member to the club. Steve is a long time friend of gaz-god, and the one held responsible for getting him back into the Amiga scene. Steve is currently working on a project to fit an A4000 and Zorro busboard into the case from and A1500 (don't worry, it was a spare!!). We look forward to seeing more of Steve and how that project is coming along.
We had a good collection of Amiga hardware (and a couple of Windows laptops but we shan't mention those!). 1200s, 4000s, A1s and a Pegaos made up the mix this time out.
As part of the club's continued commitment to assist new members to get up and running, it has put together its resources to loan cyka an Amiga 1200 system with monitor. cyka has been out of the scene for a while but we could tell he was once an Amigan, he happily spent most of the meeting playing Syndicate! We wish him many happy hours of enjoyment from the machine and hope it encourages him to scrape up his hard earned pennies and invest in an Amiga he can call his own!
As ever there is a picture here.
The inaugural meeting of the Lincolnshire Amiga Group took place on Saturday October 7th at Commerce House in Lincoln. The meeting was attended by 5 of our members, rockape (Chariman), gaz_god (Treasurer), Robert17 (Vice Chairman), MacMiga (Secretary) and cyka.
Loads of hardware from A1s to old classic machines were up and running during the meeting and much discussion took place. It was a great day and on behalf of the club I'd like to thank all that attended.
