Dude that is so awesome!
First off, welcome to AmigaLove - thanks for joining.
I love the Amiga 1000 and 2000. Those are my two main machines and are almost always on my desk at any given time. I need a 2nd desk, though, as my various C64s (which I grew up on originally) and C128D need their own space these days, but I hate packing the Amigas away. I kinda needs them alls!
So, I am probably about 2 years older than you. I graduated high school in 1989. I remember in the early 80s - when I had a Colecovision - drooling over the ADAM in the ads in a magazine. I was so desperate to get a computer back then, but it didn't happen until much later.
If you need any help sourcing things for your 2000 let me know. I share your fear for your 2000's motherboard. I have a spare 2000 but the battery killed that one. It became an organ donor. My daily, though, just rocks. I need to take a more recent picture of it, but I've posted pics of it all over this site. Hah! Here's a typical setup of mine, though.
I even had this one
in my possession briefly before selling it (to help pay for my C=/Amiga obsession/hobby).
I'm a designer, too (web/mobile mostly, but other stuff, too). What do you do?
