LAG 8 Show report and photos

Wow – I must have had too much coffee right? No not really I just have a much easier way of posting to blogs (the wonders of using Mac OS X, see :)).

LAG 8 went really well, we had a record turnout! We had 9 people at Saturday’s meeting which I believe is an all-time best. We had a lot of varied hardware on display with all the usual suspects, along with newer members Rick and Pete, our Cryptmag regular Barry ‘Wisecracker’ Walker, the every-zany Terl, and Amiga die-hard Steve.

The only frustrations of the day came from Robert17’s Amiga 4000 Desktop suffering a bent pin on a SCSI cable, and both MacMiga’s and Gaz_God’s EFIKA proving Linux really is a very obtuse OS when it doesn’t want to work!!

Photos are online too on our newly upgraded Flickr Pro account:


LAG 8 will happen…

We are planning on holding a 8th LAG meeting at the beginning of December. I can’t currently completely confirm the date but all being well (yes, a long-shot I know) we should be holding it on the 1st December (Saturday) at the usual venue. Not confirmed yet, but that’s when it was planned for at the last meeting (which seems like half a year ago).

LAG 7 Date Confirmed

LAG 7 will take place at the usual venue, Lincs Chamber of Commerce, Outer Circle Road, Lincoln, on September 15th (Sorry! I got that a bit wrong!!) 2007. Due to key member commitments we are unable to hold it in October as planned, so we’re having it early.

The next meeting after this one ( LAG 8 ) will likely be at the usual time of early December.

LAG 6 Reminder

Just a reminder to everyone that the next LAG meeting is THIS SATURDAY (11th August) at our usual venue, Lincoln Chamber of Commerce, Outer Circle Road, Lincoln.

On display this meeting will be the usual array of Classic and AmigaONE hardware, along with MacMiga and gaz_god’s EFIKA projects (which will hopefully both be completed and running by then!).
We will also, circumstances permitting, be doing a rebuild of a Eyetech EZTower-Z4 Amiga 1200, which is undergoing a mainboard swap.

As usual, all are welcome to join us.

LAG 6 date confirmed

Sorry for the late announcement, but we’ve had to do a bit of re-planning. LAG 6 will take place at the usual venue, Lincs Chamber of Commerce, Outer Circle Road, Lincoln, on August 11th 2007. Please nothe this is the *second* Saturday in August, not the first, as MacMiga is away over the first weekend.


MacMiga will be bringing along his new EFIKA board to LAG 5 and will (if i can get Linux to install) hopefully give a demo of the EFIKA in action. He will also be fielding questions etc. about the board and it’s features.

UPDATE: I can confirm this will be a goer as I have just got it up and running with Debian Linux. Thanks to the guys at Genesi and bplan for their speedy work fixing the Debian install Kernel for EFIKA!
