I'm Mixel / Michael and I'm only recently getting back into the Amiga after many years absense, largely inspired by youtubers and all the great amiga twitter accounts etc.
I'm mostly interested in pixel graphics and gaming, though it's been a lot of fun recovering my old HDD contents and finding old stuff I made with my brother. So much weird AMOS junk. I've been collecting boxed amiga games even when I couldn't actually play them outside of emulation.. For some reason! So it's nice to have a working set up again.
One of my biggest regrets is all the old amiga stuff i got rid of along the way.. A1200t/Apollo 040/16Mb with a squirrel SCSI ZIP drive would have come in really handy now.. I only have a ram expanded Escom era A1200 at the moment and am in the process of updating it to my taste. It's surprisingly not *that* slow as long as i dont try to do DTP etc.
Back in the day we had Dragon, Amstrad, ST then Amiga 500+, then I got my first fully my own computer, an A1200HD (with a ~70?! mb HDD? if I remember correctly!) That machine is long gone sadly but I really missed something about the Amiga. At least I still have all it's data!
Looking forward to a lot of messing around in DPaint. This seems like a really friendly place!
