Pleased to say that my Republic Of Gamers (ROG) Ally handheld PC has arrived as my early birthday present to myself! Let's take a closer look at the setup and also upgrades I did straight away!
Our featured banquet speaker will be Garry Hare, former CEO of Amiga Inc., after a near two decades Garry will return to AmiWest to share his unique role in the History of the Amiga. Also, Trevor Dickinson has confirmed his attendance and the show rate at the hotel is open for bookings. Click for more details!
"Denise" is a new Amiga (and C64) emulator for Windows, MacOS, and Linux. And it's surprisingly good!
Development of "Denise" seems to date back to around 2017, when it started as a Commodore 64 emulator. In March 2023 author PiCiJi released version 2.0, which adds Amiga 500 and 1000 emulation. Running Fedora Linux, I gave it a quick try.
I found out recently about the Perth Amiga User Group (you can find them on Facebook here), and decided to go to one of their meetings in late May 2023 and make a weekend getaway out of it!
However, I couldn't go there empty-handed, so I decided to work some more on my Amiga 600 build, as it is the smallest Amiga and therefore the easiest to bring in my luggage on the 3 hour flight to Perth.

PIXEL Moon Tutorial
If you want to learn how to draw Pixel art, one way is to copy another design. In this tutorial after an Amigan requested some help on an Amiga Facebook site, I decided to quickly create this tutorial to help on how to approach creating some Pixel Art.

A quick summary:
Hey my friends...
Took me quite a few years to return to what I loved most, but the past weird years, the community dragged me back and since October of 2022 I'm back on track!
I have many things I wanna share from the last 6+ months but I hope in the next days/weeks to start writing and tinkering again with my blog.
So thanks all for sticking all this time, and stay tuned for more...
I am focused now on the setup of a AmigaOS 1.3/3.1/3.2.2 switchable configuration, and getting the Amiga 500 online with the ACA500 Ethernet module (X-Surf 500).
