Comment Wow, yeah, I do... (Score 1) 284

I remember moving the mouse around and noticing how fine the detail was on the mouse pointer, at that point I knew the Amiga, with its chunky sprite mouse pointer, was dead.
Same thing when I saw the video demo... Sadly had to get rid of the stuff, Commodore was bankrupt by then anyways.

Thanks for that. That was way before my time but I've got quite a fondness for that era. Like the whole late-1950s to 1970s.

" In the early 1970s, while Jack Schleh was closing Soundac and moving the company's materials to a van, car thieves stole the van, which was never found."

So sad, and mysterious. I wonder if we'll find film rolls as people pass on?
