These are the Amiga news that I discovered in the week just passed, 15th-21st July 2019:
- Apollo Guidance Computer restoration project
- The Borth of the Commodore Amiga - Interview with Engineer Joe Decuir
- Updated: Shogo - Mobile Armor Division 1.9
- Amigos Amigathon 2019
Not technically a piece of Amiga or Amiga-related news but retro nonetheless. A group of volunteers have been working to restore a privately owned prototype (?) of the Apollo space programme Guidance Computers and have documented it on a series of videos. They have restored and reworked an otherwise dead Apollo Guidance Computer that had not run in 45+ years. The link underneath is the playlist that has been updated with episode 22.
