    I've not seen any of the floppies before but I have messed with a copy that was thought to be the Premiere Edition. Turns out that copy was nothing more than a hexedited copy of Windows 1.01. I do...

    Making my own external Amiga floppy drive?

    Random idea I had. I'd like to get a second floppy drive on my Amiga 500 since the old SCSI hard drive died but I have no money with which to purchase either a new hard disk or an external floppy...

    I had an old ThinkPad 360CE a while back. It eventually ended up with the body of the 360CE, the motherboard of a 360C (33MHz 486 instead of a 66/33DX2) and the screen from a 360P. Then the video...

    When I bought it, it came in a briefcase with all the manuals and cables. I suspect that it's lived most of its life in that briefcase.

    They both sound the same as far as I can tell.


    I guess that means I need to figure out where to stick the probes. Finding documentation shouldn't be too difficult online, right?

    Pulled the hard drive, no change.

    The thing asks for a password no matter what you try to boot into - hard drive, floppy disk or even system setup. It will drop me into the Monitor though;...

    Neither of those passwords worked. I guess I'll leave the thing unplugged all night and see if that fixes anything. I did read the manual and it did say that most of the configuration data (including...

    I tried ProTracker and that didn't seem to do anything. The power LED goes dim when I hold in the reset key combo and brightens when I release it.

    Sound issues with an Amiga 500?

    So I finally got a working null modem cable together and I decided to play some games on my new Amiga. The games play fine but the sound? Not so much. Everything sounds overdriven and distorted.

    Here's a couple pictures of the monitor and system. It turns out the SupraDrive works just fine; the card edge connector just wasn't making good contact. It boots to Workbench 2.1.

    I bought another Amiga 500

    Alright, so the last Amiga 500 didn't work out so well. It seemed to work fine, but it was only the system and the power brick and I could never get a Workbench disk. However, I've picked up another...
