Very, very sad given the timing. Hopefully the recent members will participate in either red or blue arenas.

Sad to hear - but understandable with the Amiga's future still so uncertain.

Cheer up!

Yes, it's sad a usergroup is closing, especially one which has been going on for such a loooong time

However our usergroup, Amiga North Thames is still going strong and there is a new usergroup, 3CAG which started recently, and of course, SEAL are still going too, so it's not all doom and gloom!

No more carefree laughter
Silence ever after
Walking through an empty house, tears in my eyes
Here is where the story ends, this is goodbye

Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
We just have to face it, this time we’re through
(this time we’re through, this time we’re through
This time we’re through, we’re really through)
Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go
(I have to go this time
I have to go, this time I know)
Knowing me, knowing you
It’s the best I can do

Mem’ries (mem’ries), good days (good days), bad days (bad days)
They’ll be (they’ll be), with me (with me) always (always)
In these old familiar rooms Amigas would play
Now there’s only emptiness, nothing to say

Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
There is nothing we can do
Knowing me, knowing you (ah-haa)
We just have to face it, this time we’re through
(this time we’re through, this time we’re through
This time we’re through, we’re really through)
Breaking up is never easy, I know but I have to go
(I have to go this time
I have to go, this time I know)
Knowing me, knowing you
It’s the best I can do

Hmm, this is hitting very close to home.

Although, my AMUSE group is still going good I have been to a meeting where I was the only one to show up.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

Sad to see as everyone's already mentioned

It does look like they've got a fair amount of Amiga content on their site. Any ideas if they plan on keeping the website up, or if someone might be able to archive it so it's not lost?

Been a member of NAG since 1992. Have also been without my Amiga 4000 for over a year since the motherboards have been in the shop since January a year ago. Here I am with a super wammy Mac with Microsoft Office, Photoshop, Illustrator, and a few other things, but I still miss Final Writer in a big way, Pagestream, Image FX and the lot. I still haven't found out how to do some of the things on the Mac that I could do so easily on the Amiga - at least without having to spend a bundle.

Now with NAG going down, it's another nail in the old coffin for me.
