My name is Joel and I am just getting back to Amiga after being away for decades.
While on paternal leave with my second child i decided one day to dig out my old A600 from storage.
It smelled funny the last time it was powered on 10 years ago and I decided to send it off for a recap. It was very much needed since a few traced had been damaged and it was in need of repair.
Now its back up and running again and im so happy.
I got this Amiga when i was 14 years old and its my oldest and best friend.
It has got a few upgrades too. Kickstart 3.1.4, WB3.1.4, a604n, Indivision ECS V2, Gotek, Furia, SD-card, new optical mouse.

Hello there and welcome!

Ohhh, an A600! You don't have some pictures of it by chance? I'd love to see your setup with all of those upgrades.

Awesome!

Uhm, there is the "[" missing b4 the [/url].

Routing the display of the Gotek through the airvent to the top face is a neat idea. <3

Fixed link.
Yes it fits perfectly with minimal cutting of the case. Just a small 3mm hole to get the connectors through.

Welcome, Jola78! Thanks for joining.

That's a sweet (and pretty wild) A600 you've got there. Must be awesome to still have your old machine from back in the day. And to have it all maxed out in 2020 is very cool indeed. Here's to the next 25+ years of good times on that machine!
