I finally got back into the Commodore Amiga in late May 2019 by purchasing a used Amiga 500. I have yet to set it up permanently but it has run a few times. I am planning how to set it up physically as well as how my setup with regard to software and hardware, etc.
I also have a few projects related to this Amiga 500, some of which I already have the parts for, others I need to prepare parts - I have the ingredients so to speak, and yet others I need to find the parts - and the funds for those parts...
As you may have read in part one, my computer story started with a Commodore 64. Through a friend, who had an Amiga 1000 I was introduced to the Amiga world. As I remember, he later got both an Amiga 500 and Amiga 2000. He actually had an Atari ST as well.
My history with having computers started with the Commodore 64.
In the early 1980's when I was a child, me and my friends frequented partly the game arcade and the retail shops in town that had computers. Back then the different shops used to have computers on display that you could try, only from time to time you would get told to move on.
