Is Rich still out there? Is there any news? It has been 6 weeks as of
last Thursday and is coming quickly up on 8 weeks.
Just dying for a hard disk.
Anybody want to know why the Amiga isn't selling up to it's potential?
Anybody think that it might have anything to do with all the mis-under-
standing the general public has about the machine? Anybody wonder where
it comes from? Anybody looked at the "What if the Mac had color?" article
in Mac World? Notice where it says to use hi-res on the Amiga you have to
go to Black&White. Says you have to also get a different screen...
Sounds like somebody is refering to the ATARI, no?
Now, isn't Mac World and Amiga World put out by the same people? Hmm...
The guy who wrote the article is _Chairman_ of Mac World, whatever
that means. (boy, I tell you!)
Unemployeed (and broke) Dec/Amiga consultant
soon to get a cute .signature file
Since then I have heard that my dealer is going to get them in in a couple
of weeks. Anyone know how they are turning out? My dealer is charging
$995. Is that a good price?
I had a .signature file all written up and I left it at home, I will
bring it next time, I promise!
