Rumors of my demise are greatly exaggerated!

I received more than one concerned email saying that I had passed away, which as you can see, is not quite accurate. I did suffer a minor stroke about 9 or 10 months ago, but did not sustain any permanent damage, and have made a few changes to attempt to increase my physical activity level, in hopes of avoiding another such event.

I have not touched any of my Amiga or MorphOS gear in a couple years, and have reached a point in my life where I'm looking at down sizing everything, so I can be more flexible about moving around without too many anchors dragging behind me, so I'll be selling most, or all of my Amiga and MorphOS gear (if anyone is interested, contact me via email for a list. My email account at GMail is bbhs74, and I also still have my amigadave account with Earthlink.net). I don't check here often enough to reply to personal messages on this forum site.

It's probably been over two years since I last logged in here, and I find it to be very sad that the litigation regarding AmigaOS is still not resolved, and that almost nothing has happened, or changed around here. I give you all credit for having more perseverance than I have.

Stay healthy, and try to be happy with your Amiga choices.

Best Regards,
David

@amigadave

Great to hear from you! Cloanto managed to licence THEA500 Mini deal with Retro Games Ltd despite the litigation! Wizonk, Final Fight Enhanced and Reshoot Proxima III came out, all the rest is a bonus IMHO. Oh, yeah and Trevor/David Pleasance finished their book trilogy and David has moved onto amiga tracksuits!

Really glad you're doing better!
