It seems like it was yesterday I started up Vintage Amiga Hardware Blog, time marches on and it does seem like I have done almost everything there is to do with an Amiga.

From basic A500 modifications to souped up Amiga 1200 with PPC and BVision, from loaded A4000 systems, broken A3000 to high end workstations packed with heat, full SCSI systems and even new school AmigaOS 4.1 systems to MorphOS systems, I been there and done it all.

But off course there is much more to do, for that I leave it to the rest of the Amiga fans to find out.

Have fun!

I have for sale a second hand Phase 5 CyberVision64 card (not CyberVision64-3D!). It is a Zorro 3 only graphics card (A3000/A4000/T). It has been fully populated with RAM.

Unfortunately I do not own any working big box Amiga computers anymore, I have a broken A3000 waiting for repair so I can not test it, it was working when I got it mounted inside an Amiga 4000 last year though.

I am thinking about 130 euro incl shipping to most countries (far away countries might be more expensive, shipping from Sweden, payment with Paypal, Germans, Swizz can off course pay with bank transfer if you want).

Many thanks!

As the user base of classic Amiga shrinks down more and more it becomes more apparent that soon it is up to the users themselves to produce cool hardware that have been sold out for years or that nobody created.

This is not the first internal IDE to CompactF lash adapter made, but it is not really for internal CF-use in the Amiga 600 and Amiga 1200, you should cut out a slot above the slot for the PCMCIA-card and then you will be able to remove and push in your Amiga HD (CF-card) very easy, very neat.

This little adapter is made by Kipper2k, you can find the official thread on English Amiga Board, or you can find out all about this cool Amiga device on his site: http://www.kipper2k.com/forsale.html

(Look at the site for a printable template in order to do a neat cut in your A1200/A600 case)

There is many alternatives to connecting Compact Flash to your Amiga 600/1200, this is one is great because it does not interference with the Indivision in the A1200 or ACA630 in the A600, and it is in a totally cool white PCB color too!

If you want one I suggest you get one now before they sell out forever!

A very nice Amiga 4000 setup:

Just noticed an interesting post on a1k.org hinting coming exciting product from Individual Computers.

Seems like it is going to be a 020 based card with 8MB and IDE port, if any German reader knows more post in the comments please.

I post here the english machine translated content which is 25% garbage language but I think you might need some entertainment today.

Maybe the machine translator is broken, but aparently the turbo board is going to be able to connect to a A1200 turbo board(?!). Sounds weird, but exciting. Time to stock up on Blizzard 060 cards ;)

For many years it was known that Jens, king of Individual Computers, had a proto of a 030 CPU turbo card for the Amiga 600 running. Some peoples head exploded, they wanted to preorder two or three of them, most other only wanted one card but disaster struck – Jens took back the card from the market before it even entered it and destroyed it!

Years went by and the legend spread around the Amiga community. The proto he built was made of Apollo schematics,  Apollo turbo boards where all kinds of crap in one package that was the most unfriendly turbo ever made if you actually wanted to run it in your Amiga instead of flashing it on your Amiga hardware blog. There is actually a rumor out there that is confirmed, no guarantee that IC products will be working with Apollo cards.
