after getting a real physical Amiga 1200 again, I thought it'd be a good idea to register an account at a good Amiga forum. After speaking to my cousin "3D-vice", he recommended this forum. So here I am!
I started my computer-live with a C64 at XMAS 1993. At this evening I was the hapoiest kid on the plant, having my own computer, but at the same time I was quite unhappy because my dad did not allow me to plug in the power supply and monitor to my brand new C64. Why? Well, for unknown reasons he thought I would immediately destroy my computer, so I had to wait additional five days before I was able to use my Commodore C64. What an odd situation ...
Anyway, after a couple of years I switched to an Amiga 500 and then to an Amiga 1200 with unbelievable 7 MB of RAM. At that time I stopped playing games and started modifing my workbench.
One of my geeky moments was to use the RAM to create a large RAD (persistent RAM Drive). I booted the workbench via disc and copied the workbench to the RAD. In the next step, I rebooted the workbench and
started the system from RAD. It was a similar feeling like switching from an old HDD to a new SSD.
Today I use Linux and BSD as main OS for daily work. This main purpose for my decision to buy an Amiga again, getting back to that cozy "good old times feeling".
