With about 49 hours on the Kickstarter to go, the Viva Amiga stretch goal is about 1,812 pounds ($2,278) from being fulfilled!

@RobertB

I would imagine there would be more candour if the legal battles were put to rest 1st.

Just realised I have exceeded 3000 posts. Wow. Thats a lot of time spent on here considering I read a lot more than I post.

I ended up supporting this effort only after listening to the retro hour episode where they interviewed Trevor and David - with the current events of Hyperion pretty much busy suing themselves over internal frauds (no, really? who's surprised?) Trevor can hopefully be honest, open, and subjective about his "affairs" with Hermans etc. :)

Also looking forward to the sazzy juicy details surrounding Jim Collas, hehe...

@Topic

In the end came to conclusion I would back the project after all, but missed it by 1.5 hours.

Oh well, maybe better this way. Im sure David will anyway be selling it after its released too, so perhaps then my finances are at better condition and can buy them.

Just would have liked to participate in that raffle for vampire board.

... and split into 2 volumes due to the wealth of material recovered from David and Trevor's research. Obviously extra charges apply....

Expect an email if you are one of the backers!
