Hehe, I had both. My history:


C64
CPC 464
C64
Amiga 1000
Atari STF 1024
Amiga 500
PC


The CPC 464, the Amiga 1000 and the Atari I bought always because I wanted to play one specific game. Crazy times back then!

Even as an Atari ST guy back in the day, that warms my cockles. #oldskool   :D
OK, where is the ban button on these forums :P

For the record, SyntaxBomb prefers the Amiga over the ST :D - I'll always have super fond memories of the day I loaded up Pro Tracker and armed with ST-01 and ST-02 sample disks created my first MOD tune. I still have it, it sounds shockingly bad, but I was in pure awe of the possibilities.

Until the next time...

Ah IK+, I think it came with my miggy, but I ditched it for I missed the humor, blood and gore from Barbarian on the C64.

Specially loved the move where you turn round and cut of the opponents head, which then bounces on the floor with a hollow sound(lol), he goes through his knees and a burst of blood sprays from it's neck. Then the troll like creature comes along, drags the body away and sometimes kicks the head away. Brilliant!  ;D

I loved the Amiga ( all of them ) and I think it was definitely the Lion King in its day, especially for games and also apps, only marginally rivalled by the ST because the ST had a MIDI port. In all other ways the Amiga was suprior. I had a 500 and a 1200 and I put a blizzard '060 into the A1200  :P

It was also the first computer that I used to gain access to the internet, Aminet specifically.

@Qube
I loved the trackers too, especically when Octamed was released :D
One that I've grown fond of is openmpt from https://openmpt.org/

We used to have the occasional nostalgia thread over on bb.com and as an 'olden' I love them

btw if you can help it... don't get older, I never had any health issues until I tipped over the 40 mark. Now I have a few ailments so I'm going into the 'garage' on Tuesday for an operation to get some minor repairs done :D

I didn't work with AMOS but I still have my old equipment and much more in the basement:

- VIC20
- C64-I / C64-II
- C128 / C128D (plastic) / C128D (metal)
- Floppies: 1541-I / 1541-II / 1571 / 1581
- Printer: MPS-801
- Monitor: C1084
- Amiga 500
- Amiga 1000
- Amiga 2000
- Schneider Euro PC
- Commodore PC-20
- Epson HX-20

My wife says that this is electronic garbage but for me it is pure nostalgia. I still have my floppy disks, too but copied all of them ages ago to the PC because they demagnetize.
Kind regards

As long as you find somebody who pays for it. Now would be a good time to sell it but I'll keep it, it is mine :-D My precious. You must take it from my cold, dead hands.

The first one I ever programmed on was an Exidy Sorcerer.  I think my Dad got me the Atari 800 so I'd leave his computer alone, heheheh
