Sunday I pick up another load of Amiga hardware and software from a former user in the area.
On Sunday morning I went over to Ken Slater's house to pick up the Amiga goods that he did not want anymore (which was everything). He had been storing all the goods since 1995 but decided it was time to give them away. A programmer, he had been into Amiga computers since the very first, even going to the 1980's Amiga swap meetings in the Stockton/Lodi area. I tried to convince him to stay in the Amiga fold, saying that there were Amiga emulators and that the AmiWest Show was just in a few weeks in mid-October. His mind was set, and he didn't want to turn back.
Among the goods were an optioned-out A1000, a pair of A500s, hundreds of floppy disks with programs sitting in them, and a monstrously big Bodega Bay expansion box for the A500. I had never seen a Bodega Bay in-person before... lots of heavy steel which reminded me of PET cases. Ken said that the Bodega Bay had a populated memory card, a SCSI controller card, and a SCSI hard drive. I'll open it up soon to look inside!
