Hello World

I now have two megabytes in my A600!

And who knew the trapdoor expansion card would be so bloody small.
I'm not sure why I was expecting something larger, but the great big hole in the bottom of the Amiga was roughly the size I'd always assumed the card might be.
Instead.. Teensy little thing! A little smaller than a playing card.

So, what can I do with the newfound power?
Well, I can load the driver for the Compact Flash card, along with Fat95, and have MagicWB on top, then still load Frontier : Elite II on top of all that.

I'm currently sifting through hundreds of disks, trying to figure out which of my disks still work, and quite how I'm supposed to get Blitz2.0 working alongside MagicWB, because it currently doesn't seem to work very well at all!!

New Eastenders Set

One chr saying "Yes it is nice, and it is done" followed by another chr saying "It is nice, it is new. I like it", followed by another chr going "Oooh, it is lovely. It is new. It is different, but it's the same."
Would love to see a nice long documentary about the building of this, and the new'ish Corrie set, too.
Why do they not do things like that?
Wasted opportunity.
