I’m writing this from my newly set up Amiga 1200. I finally have a dedicated place in my office for this machine, and now I’m taking this keyboard for a real spin.
I bought this Amiga refurbished from
and everything about it has been great, except for
the keyboard. It’s hard for some keys to actually
register keypresses. I even replaced the keyboard
a new hard PCB one, and keys like
b sometimes take a bunch of bops to bounce into
the bomputer. I might also be too spoiled by modern
keyboards. Who knows.
So I’m going to give writing a little status update on the Amiga regularly a try to see if:
- I can write something on a regular basis for The Industrious Rabbit, even while in video production mode.
- I can work out the kinks in this keyboard.
In other personal Amiga news, I was part of the Bromo Art Walk at M.A.P. Technologies on Thursday, and ended up creating a new piece for the 2022 Amiga Art Contest in True Brilliance live at the show. It’s a pretty nice piece of software to paint in, and a good number of people were amazed that it was 30 years old and still that capable.
