I shouldn't laugh - but how many times did the word female crop up in that interview? I mean whats relevant about her being a girl?

And as for the last question about finding love at the end..

And the bit at the bottom..


Amidelf - just ask her out and have done with it dude

hmmmm..... "the only computer making a pleasure the act of powering it on and sitting at work!"

It's always very pleasant to see that I'm not the only Amiga on this planet.

Damn straight it's not, it's the Amiga World, which is even better.

"Go out! Know as much people as you can! And search, search, search..."

Why would I wan't to go out in order to search? That's the whole point of Google, now innit?




Actually, nice interview. She seems sensible enough for a zealot. It's always good to see people who think in terms of "Amiga" instead of getting all hung up on camps and colours. That's the spirit some seem to have lost over the years..

Well, everytime I say that we should not think in camps but in terms of "Amiga" and
that we should support everyone that develops something nice I get flamed by
Samface, saying that the community is split, communication should cease
("to stop the war") etc...

@ Mjohnson

Where did you learn to speak English so well - you even use local coloquielisms such as that infamous bloody awful "innit" as used by Welsh women from Newport...


Every day in work I hear "innit" and "eh.. u 'aving an Eppy" etc...

@Bobsonsirjonny

Using "speak English so well" and "innit" in the same sentence seems quite contradictory, don'cha think?

When in doubt, I resort to Kdict.

As for picking up "innit," you can thank/blame Richard West for that (Mr. C of The Shamen fame).

Got any salmon? Sorted!


Enough with the OT.

Let's get back on track by saying that if the Amiga spirit is strong enough to overcome all sorts of language barriers and is able to connect users despite their expertise (or lack thereof) in English, then what obstacle should we let a few colours become? "No matter if you're black, white, yellow or brown, keep comin' on you know we're comin' on strong!"

(Or maybe; no matter if you're black, blue, DE or red, **** everyone who says Amiga is dead)



@AMiGR

Well, in some cases, that would really be the best solution. In other cases, isn't it nice that we can see past our differences, embrace our similarities, and all get along nicely?

And, I've said it repeatedly before, to the point of boredom, and I'll say it again, because it's an observation that needs to be stressed, the biggest w***ers that try to ruin this community don't support either platform, and have no intention of doing so. They're just getting a kick out of pissing on whichever "side" is closest to the ground atm.

As in: Motherboard X (insert Amiga'ish ppc-mobo of the day) is expensive and useless. Etcetera, etcetera, blablabla, yadiyadi, yap, yap, yap...

Then someone tries to stand up for that side, and the other side gets dragged into it, and someone from the other side jumps in to defend their platform, and things escalate, while the "neutral" initiator just sits quietly in the background, enjoying the spiral, jumping in to fuel the fire from time to time.

That's the impression I get, anyway.

Now, there may be strong advocates for the respective solution in all the camps, some most likely coming off as a bit annoying to any user of the "opposing" platform regardless of how strong their own bias, but, well, remove the real trolls, who do not engage in flamewars to defend any platform or direct any constructive criticism towards the other, but join in solely to pick fights and further the bickering, and I'm sure that even the most zealous supporters on either side of the fence would be all the more inclined to actually join hands with their "opponents." Even the "por litel misgiden baf bomma doggs"


At least that's what I think. In my very humble, and personal, opinion. And I would like to think that I have a point in there, somewhere.

Wierd! We share the same opinion!

Apart from the claim that a cease of communication would be the best thing.
The REAL trolls, causing all trouble, will still be there, while the users will be
apart...
The real trolls, are not from any side, they jump around causing flamewars.

@AMiGR
Who is Samface?
Sorry, I have been around so many amiga forums so my eyes has built in killfilters these days.
Some people it is best to ignore, Samface and Eva(morphos-fan) is two of them.
I guess the amiga community has it´s villageidiots just like any other community.

@AMiGR

Well, I said "in some cases", there are probably those who should go take a walk around the block and get a bit of fresh air every once in a while....maybe even permanently in some, but far from all, cases... (I could point out the Peg-supporters and you could list the Amiga-fanboys to fall under that category....or we could just skip that part alltogether and remain friends. )

And, well, I personally kinda "agree" with Sammy by proxy, you know, in that gut-feeling type of way, since he's a vocal supporter of "my" system. Though I'm sure those from the opposing camp/side/colour/whatever could find his posts annoying during the heat of battle, so to speak. And there are those from the other camp/side/whatever/etcetera that I think are kinda pushing it a bit, but who will probably come off as being allright if you're into butterflies.

As it is now, I don't think I would have much to discuss with those ravenous MOS-supporters, nor would I want to. And I think it's a fair guess that the same goes for you and the equally rampant AOS-fans, no?

But, as we both seem to agree on(?), maybe all these vocal supporters of differing systems would get along fine if we could just rid ourselves from the real trolls that serve only to agitate and enrage, and as a consequence, turn red against blue. Maybe.


But until the day comes when everyone can just disregard from the infighting, let's just the rest of us rejoice in the fact that we can all use powericons!


@Dan

I don't think it'd be fair to compare anyone, red, black or blue, with that "Eva" alias, really.

@bobson

Check out the cecilia interview, similar questions about whether single or not.

Pathetic, can you imagine him asking a bloke about marital status and their search for love?

Aye - and I can imagine him recieving the madatory black eye..

I think he should try and conduct the interviews in his own language and then have them translated. Perhaps he doesn't realise how absurd he sounds in English.

He could possibly pay MJohnson to do the translation - after all MJohnson sounds like a native

I'm trying to learn Italian at the moment. My mate Axeman is getting married to an Italian, and has yet to learn the tongue (yet he spends hours trying to learn Welsh..)

My mate Axeman is notoriously tight - so I wish to inform all the Italian guests how much he begrudges paying for the Wedding Breakfast.. But I'll do it in as least an offensive way as possible.

He still owes my mate Mop £20 for a Commodore 64 that he bought from him in 1991..

I actually disagree with anyone flaming any product (except Elbox'... I had enough of
them). I can and do reply to most posts against MorphOS as I did about Warp3D and
other Amiga (market) products in the past. I believe that we should all get along and
-heck- why not, cross compile our software!

Tell him to try to clear his throat, it has roughly the same effect.

To be fair it isn't just AmiDelf who has a bit of a thing for the laydeez (who said I'm not down with youth culture innit?) There was quite a hooha when Blobrana posted a picture to the Faces of Amiga.org site, and it turned out that the Amiga-lovin' astronomer was in fact an attractive young woman (with a camera over her bed - kinky! ). Any woman who is mad enough to be into amigas is guarenteed marrige proposals.

(Mind you, being in love with someone who is constantly complaining about my Ameeeega hobby has kinda made me see what the attraction might be )

About those village idiots:

We used to have two morons debating all the time. Samface and Alkis. Alkis has grown up, Eva has taken his place. Samface has moved from debating Alkis to disagreeing with everyone. And Amon_Re has filled in his shoes by now replying to each and every post Eva makes. Even the completely redundant ones.

The circus over at ANN is rapidly (rabidly? ) becoming quite silly.

Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.
