Thanks for keeping the repos and the videos up, TF.

I've been working through the vidoes learning as I go as I've been fancying building some hardware for my Falcon and Archie 3000 and very much liked your approach. I'd not really been aware of CPLDs before I saw your work and they seem like the missing link to me finally getting my feet wet.

Have fun with the the flight sim build. I'm going to assume -- based on your accelerator approach -- it'll be hydraulic jacks, a custom flight model and plenty of Simconnect work.

Bon voyage!

BW.

Sad to see you step back, but completely understand. I was really looking forward to a 1260 and a 560. I have spare CPUs and I even bought the 1200 edge connector in anticipation of building one.

Don't let the small percentage of goofballs get you down. There's way more of us that appreciate what you've done.

Stephen,

As a recent returnee to the Amiga world after 24 years away (!!) I want you to know that you're a f***ing hero to me and the other less financially well positioned old geezers!! In the words of Caesar..."Nolite illegitimi te carborundum..."

Good evening Stephen,
good evening TF fans,
apologize, was absent for some time in connection with my wedding... Merried at 16.11.2019 :P

Have read whole thread above - very surprised and discouraged, because the last thing I've heard - was that alenppc ordered 1000 edge connectors for A1200. What will happen to these connectors now? Turns out they are not needed anymore?

In any case, I am very grateful for last three years, because I was able to live them interestingly and enthusiastically, during this time I went from a person who did not know how to solder smd to a pro who could do even reball. Of course it depends on You what You are prepared to reach, but this was a perfect example that everything is possible if You are working as a team. In addition, on my way I met so much wonderful and sincere people, one of them even flew with his wife to Germany to our wedding from USA - it's just wonderful how hobbies and similar interests bring people together.. Adrian and Kelly, thank you very much for these unforgettable days, and for positive emotions we got - this week will always remain in our hearts. I hope we will be able to visit You in US soon.

As for our hobby - Steve always says:
"Living a dream!" I know its hard to live without it. Sure, family is more important than retro computers, will need to make same decisions here, however my wife knows that it is important to me, and thats what makes me feel happy, so i will be able to swing my soldering station from time to time.. ;)
Will also be happy to see any news from TF, even if it will be one stream per year..
Thank You all!

Congratulations @8bitdreams on the marriage!

I had forgotten that I also didn’t know how to do smd soldering prior to doing the TF boards. I am at least semi confident now.

I'll definitely purchase the ones I committed to from Alen. No questions. I'll consider doubling the number I committed to if other people feel they are being left with "useless" connectors.

I should be clear.. at this point I’m bailing from Twitter because they are being crap with support. I think what happened is I had two accounts with one phone number and something triggered something that they’ve said is suspicious... because the two accounts had one phone number there is no way to recover the account. So it’s gone forever.
Hi Stephen,

I work for Twitter. Let me know, and we can try to work together to get your account back. :-)

Take care,

Andres.
