I took delivery of 2 fine new (old!) pieces of machinery this week, both from the awesome historical house of Commodore.
1st and foremost, a Commodore Amiga A1500! A dual drive version of the A2000 and a mighty hefty, sexy looking, beast. She also came with an official Commodore 1084S monitor. Yes, I refer to her as ‘She’ – get over it 🙂
I haven’t fired her up yet. She has been resting in a cold room for a day or so before I bought her in to my nice warm house. Worried that some condensation might form on the circuit board I’m leaving her for a day or so to acclimatise. Then… she shall rise!
Her she is 🙂
The 2nd Amiga to grace my presence this week is the gaming revolution, or sadly not as it turned out, that was the Commodore Amiga CD32 console. To be totally honest, I didn’t have one and it’s the only machine capable of playing The Chaos Engine that I didn’t have, so ~I had to have it. The game is also on it’s way 🙂
Thankfully the majority of the UK has been covered in a blanket of snow this weekend, a damn fine reason to stay warm in doors and cuddle up to my new girls 🙂
P.S. If my real girlfriend happens to be reading this then firstly I am in trouble because she doesn’t know I have bought these machines. Secondly… damn! 🙂
