Announcement   Announcement : Finnish Amiga Users Group's Amiga 4000 donation to Igor Majstorovic
   posted by jPV on 27-Oct-2014 14:35:45 (1946 reads)
Finnish Amiga Users Group recently received offers for two separate Amiga 4000 computer donations, for giving onwards to worthy Amiga causes. We are very grateful for these generous offers and have coordinated them to the best of our abilities. The machines and donations themselves have been handled by private people.

We are now happy to announce that the first one of the Amiga 4000 donations is on its way to the recipient, Igor "Majsta" Majstorovic in Bosnia. Igor has worked tirelessly and selflessly on Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) accelerator cards to bring a modern solution to speeding up our old Amigas, and we hope this donation we facilitated helps him in that work. The donation also includes Amiga 4000 accelerator board connectors, plentiful accessories and some Amiga mementos as well.

That first Amiga 4000 came from a private person. The second Amiga 4000 donation the Finnish Amiga Users Group is facilitating came from Jotaarkka Pennanen, one of the first ten Amiga 1000 owners in Finland, and a famous theatre director and writer. Jotaarkka recently visited the Saku 2014 event in Tampere, Finland - together with such Amiga luminaries as Petro Tyschtschenko and Michael Battilana - and spoke of his old Amiga computers and using them professionally in theatre work.

You can hear and see Jotaarkka yourself in this English subtitled video speech from Saku 2014. The video also shows Jotaarkka's Amiga 4000:

Finnish Amiga Users Group has found a place for Jotaarkka's Amiga 4000 for restoration and will help look for new projects for it later on as well.
