@MrFrench

It is paramount, friend MrFrench, that you share with us WHAT bourbon are drinking exactly.

Well, the "amiga" keys match the color of my blood shot eyes last night....

In case any one needs to know, I use Amiga Forever that I actually purchased... for nostalgia purposes only, i have sold nearly all of my amiga hardware.

still trying to sell the perfect sound, and I have a silver model # sticker that came off an amiga 4000 back panel if that counts as hardware.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/174186774835

ya'll come on and bid please.

LOL. It seems you may have overdone it. I had a couple last night.

Now I wake up blurry sighted and it isn't from the night before.

Well nothing is like the real thing. I found recently my laptop is missing the right logo key. So won't be good for Amiga emulation.

Selling the Perfect Sound? Are you of perfect sound and mind? A classic piece of hardware.

An Arkansas State Trooper pulled over a truck on I-40. He said to the driver, "Got any ID?" The driver said, "Bout what?"

It's really unfortunate that I am unwilling to ship world wide, but there it is.

I won your auction. Looks like you will be able to afford more bourbon.

@DiscreetFX

Well done friend DiscreetFX,

now hopefully MrFrench will invest in something a bit more palatable than barely-above-convenience-store-level bourbon like Maker's Mark and aim for, say, Woodford's Reserve?

Good luck with the hardware, I will pack it up well... as soon as you pay...

Maybe a bottle of Knob Creek... or Elijah Craig...

Here's to the PERFECT SOUND of a whiskey bottle being uncorked....

PROST!

Thanx, I love the Amiga 1000 and Perfect Sound is how the CEO of Roku got his start in company building. I believe he even built and sold the Perfect Sound hardware himself.

@MrFrench

Friend MrFrench,

as you have oh so awkwardly referenced your intoxication with bourbon on an Amiga forum while promoting your ebay listing

and on that ebay listing you somehow quite weirdly decided to promote your jazz performances,

I believe you should close the circle by going to a jazz forum and use it to promote an ebay listing of some bourbon bottle: on that listing, you will then proceed to reference your passion for the Amiga.

Sincerely yours,
your best friend and mentor and phd in awkward sciences,

DR. MEGA_RJ_MICAL, ESQUIRE, MD

Woodford Reserve isn't far from where I live. Then again Four Roses, Wild Turkey, Buffalo Trace, and just about every other bourbon distillery you could think of is within a few miles of my house... and I've never drank bourbon... go figure?

After reading this thread, perhaps I should host an Amiga meet here in the middle of nowhere.

Friend Phantometc.,

for a middle of nowhere, it seems to be a dreamy middle of nowhere.

Signed
