G'day from Australia

Post by matt020 » Sun Jan 12, 2020 5:25 am

G'day from Western Australia, my name is Matt, I like long walks on the beach and pasta dinners.

I found this place due to TerribleFire and his line of accelerator cards. I'm an Amiga collector and have been into them since they were released in the late 80's. I'm in my 40's now but still feel like I'm 14 when I sit down and fire up the Amiga 2000. I've just picked up 7th Amiga today (a little A600 model) and to some that might be a lot, and to some it might be a small amount compared to the size of their collection :lol:

Thanks for allowing me to sign up to this forum. I've already gained so much from the TerribleFire sub forum section, what he is doing for the retro community is amazing.

Cheers,
Matt.

It sure is, this week is 35 degrees Celsius all week. We have a dry heat here so it is very nice!


@Smonson: hope you're all good and the fires haven't affected you. I read/hear now that even those who aren't affected, are having problems with air quality due to the smoke?

Yes thanks, Canberra's safe for the time being. For a few days we had the highest air pollution in the world (I measured the sun's brightness at 5% of normal) but now it's merely "moderately bad". Things are looking up.
