    Matt,

    That's the ClassicWB pack with Scalos Workbench installed on top of AmigaOS 3.1.

    I remember a while ago talk about a place closing down that had a huge amount of stuff. I'm not sure, but i suspect this is the place. Fascinating (non-Amiga) video. Maybe it doesn't belong here, but i figure many of you would be interested all the same.

    It's actually been posted in a couple of threads already. :)

    To keep it Amiga related however, I've been following it all for about a month or so on the Facebook group and apparently there was some Amiga gear found but it got snapped up pretty quickly pretty early on.

    I don't Facebook so I miss that gossip. I don't come to ocau much either. :)

    I wonder what gear was snapped up. Hopefully something cool that gets restored and we get to hear or see the story.

    This has me on a bit of an Amiga Youtube binge.

    Initially, I was defensive. But after watching this I really see how the Amiga died with such shitty games.

    Language warning...

    Amiga had tons of great games and AVGN is a wanker. The Amiga was also massively successful, it just died because of other reasons.

    The Amiga had awesome games and the best part was you all traded games at school and once you got a modem and discovered cracking sites you were downloading games like they were going out of fashion. I still remember the first time we connected two Amiga's running Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge via null modem cable - Awesome fun!

    Back when having a computer was still something special (nowadays you find them at the side of the road or in skips) and still had that sense of awe about it.

    So god damn true and same for the internet as well. In this era of social media I miss the days when the internet was full of nerds, porn and geocities websites covered in hundreds of animated gifs. :lol:

    Never watched AVGN's stuff before but after watching a few minutes I can definately see why I should continue to give it a miss. I get that he has some sort of persona he's displaying in his videos but he just comes across as a complete tosser.

    Which is a point many keep forgetting. It wasn't until 1995 that x86 got preemptive multitasking under Windows 95, and even then I swear it worked better under AmigaOS without an MMU.

    Same here, now the internet's like a bag of dicks.

    [EDIT] Probably why I'm switching back to the BBS scene for meaningful discussion...

    Just on this, scene boards are still alive today. A few of this big boards from the 90's are online with active users.
    Most have the original file and message database, and when a scene party is held (they still happen, even in 2019!) the latest demos get uploaded real quick.
    Connection is via telnet. You can use your PC of course. But I use a real Amiga connected to the net ;)

    Yep!

    I 'dial into' BBS's all the time on both my C64 and my Amiga, and because all the riffraff don't even know what telnet is let alone a BBS the community is fantastic.
