This to:

Also btw for those who don't know, MorphOS for mac:

What's MorphOS anyway?

Icaros Desktop is an AROS environment with more things, like DOpus 5. The coolest feature in it is that actual AROS has been ported to m68k so now they can run emulate an m68k running their own open-source version of AmigaOS and run m68k AmigaOS software that way without requireing copies of the Kickstart ROM and AmigaOS.

It may be true that you may be able to get one for "peanuts", what do I know.

But earlier today I actually searched here in Sweden on powermac to find out if an older (603 or something such) had any value.

Turned out PowerMac G4, G5 and dual G5s are rather cheap too.

Now of course that's no Amiga and of course it likely won't run the toaster and so on but MorphOS may run on some of them and of course at least before they wasn't completely useless for video those either. At least the dual G5 likely work somewhat even today.

Also for anyone who need an Amiga kick check out Icaros desktop:

It will run on your PC so same issue as with the PowerMacs there.. But then again your PC can do things the old Amigas couldn't too.

All three ways is one way of getting the Amiga experience today. Depending on what Amiga experience you want to have :)

Also PCs aren't all that bad / useless by themselves:

Over and out - :)

With the risk of this being "Scotlands" space port ..

Lots of mentioning of scotland in the text.

I'm not well aware of the positiong issue you mention, though I do understand that part =P
Was is the advantage of the opposite such as the Esrange (Kiruna) base here in Sweden?
The amount of space available?
They mention " investigation of the aurora borealis" here so maybe that's it?

Yeah, why bother with Chess?

How does it matter really?

I remember reading on BGG how someone brought Hive ( to some group of (children? I'm quite sure) chess players (possibly related to his or her own kids?) they tried it out and of course they wanted to play Hive rather than Chess (it was new for them) and he/her was told to not bring it any more.

Even though it's not very different. Move (and in Hive case place) your different pieces around until you win.

All programmers are playwrights and all computers are lousy actors.
