Hopefully someone will get to ask Amigainc "will any of these titles ever run on OS4 or MorphOS?"

Slowly slowly mokney catching... or something.

Bit by bit, Amiga Inc. are getting the name spread around again. It's pretty clever really. More of the same guys

Fans will be able to see demonstrations of, and purchase, T-Bird-branded Amiga products at the T- Birds 2006-07 home opener on Saturday, September 30, at KeyArena at 7:05 p.m. The T-Birds will take on the Vancouver Giants in their home opener.


Hmm... Maybe I should go to this game on Saturday night to see what wares they are hawking. It will be my birthday Saturday and I deserve a night out.

The first time I went to a hockey game was at the Cow Palace in San Francisco years ago while I was in the Navy. A fight broke out around us with beer bottles and chair seats flying through the air. I've never attended another hockey game since. But then this is Seattle. And Seattle is suppose to be a polite town. Should I chance it?

@moxee

Vancouver Giants are a pretty good team, they *might* win over the local team.. otherwise it would probably be nice to get out of the house and see a game in person. With these minor league teams they are really trying to make them more appealing entertainment for lower cost than going to major league NHL games.

Here in Edmonton, whenever there's a local hockey game between the Oilers and some other team, I don't dare to leave my apartment!! No matter what the result of the game is, shop windows get smashed and people get arrested. I don't know about Seattle.

Yes, Moxee, you should attend this game. you won't regret going.
Major Junior Hockey games are great to watch. Here, in Noranda,
we have the Huskies that play in the Quebec Major Junior League.
They put on a great show at the Dave Keon Arena. A lot of these
young men make the big step to the NHL.

Smashed shop windows and people getting arrested is a normal weekend for any major city, including mine which has a population under 100,000 people. I doubt the people who are doing these things even know what a hockey game is.. and they are probably drunk or drugged up, breaking into the shops to steal stuff to support their drug addiction.

@B.J.

did you contact hmetal (Amigainc's webmaster?)? There was an offer made that everyone who contacted him and sent in their mailing address would get a t-shirt mailed to them.

I never bothered, I'd be too embarased to wear an AMIGA t-shirt nowadays, after the stint amiga pulled around here.

The $50 dollar coupon on thing got you access to CAM which was accessed by logging to the relevant site at amiga.com.

I'd imagine that Hmetal maintained the database as well as the websites and therefore would be the relevant person person to contact if you were a member entitled to a T-shirt.

I've been trying to find someone to go with me. Alas, everyone I know seems to be scheduled already.

Now that I think about it, Seattle can get wild also. Remember the WTO meeting in Seattle a few years ago. Of course, I am sure most of those people were not Seattle citizens. They are making a film about it called: "The Battle in Seattle".

I am getting a new windshield in my car Saturday morning. I'd hate to lose it Saturday night. Well, I could take the bus and risk a mugging on the way home. Hahahahaha.

I'll renew my search for a friend to attend with.

I had access to CAM, I have access to the member area, the Coupon is listed within the "Download Area", I checked my address when Amiga asked to do so and announced that the T-Shirts would be delivered soon. My address was OK, I never got my T-Shirt though.

Anyway, I followed the advice and sent an email to HMetal...
