Nostalgia nuts, something for you

  1. There was a store in my town that seemed to only sell Amigas and related
    stuff -- at least that's all I saw in the storefront window, Amigas and
    great big Amiga signs and banners. I was sort of impressed with what I read
    about Amigas in those days, but never actually came close to buying one.
    There was a PC Magazine columnist who was big on Amiga -- I think it was the
    SF writer, Jerry Pournelle.

    I had an Amiga (actually, I still have it in a box), but I only used it
    for publishing a newsletter. I wish I had purchased some of the games
    and other programs available at the time. The Amiga was certainly ahead
    of its time, but Commodore screwed it up. I even had Commodore stock
    that rose in value, split, and then became worthless.

    About 1979 I was using a Cromemco Dazzler
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cromemco_Dazzler in conjunction with a
    color TV set. For those days that was a tiger's meow. I never did
    anything much with it except show that it worked.
    $3000 for an 8" 10MB hard drive.
