In the donation, I almost jumped out of my skin to find this Readysoft A-Max II Plus box. When I had my original Amiga 2000 system in the early 1990's, I had one of these cards in my system. At the time, I was attending Cisco Junior College in Abilene, Texas. Amiga's were definitely not... Continue Reading →
I recently received an Amiga 1000 from a nice individual in Huntsville, Alabama who recently decided to move his Amiga collection. Knowing that I didn't want these items in a landfill, I contacted him and asked if I could have them. Which he graciously agreed and sent them to me. It's a nice addition to... Continue Reading →
I recently picked up this RTG video card for my Amiga 2000 system. This makes a wonderful improvement to the A2000 video output. While surfing the internet, the webpages are displayed in their full color pallet. The only issue I have is that this card doesn't support mode promotion. What that means is if you...

According to the developer, the work was supported by a GoFundMe page which was a overwhelming success (As evidenced by the board you see in the photo above.) In addition to the red mask you see, he also produced black and white masked... Continue Reading →
I picked this up from one of the guys in our local Amiga club. It could use a good cleaning. Most likely it needs a recap as well. Included in the package was a Gotek drive, Individual Computers A1221, a clock board and a CF card reader.
Like the Atari ST gotek installation, the OLED install is no different. Follow the hookup instructions in that thread. I must admit, it's nice to be able to see the file names versus just a number.
There has been a lot of trials and tribulations with this little plipbox. I would spend my free time on weekends troubleshooting my TCP/IP stack using MiamiDX networking software. I would go back and forth in my router configuration. I would download different networking software packages. I would search the internet for any help to... Continue Reading →
I was recently sent this Gotek drive sled for my Amiga 2000. "What make this so special?" You may ask yourself. The drive sled fits the disk drive opening in the Amiga 2000 case. The stock Gotek is a standard 3.5" form factor. Commodore, in there wisdom, decided on using drive in the Amiga that... Continue Reading →
What is it? Plipbox is an Arduino-based device that allows to connect low-end classic Amigas via Ethernet to your local network. It bridges IP traffic received via PLIP on the parallel port of the Amiga to the Ethernet port attached to the Arduino. Introduction With the plip2slip project I already presented a device that uses... Continue Reading →
