do NOT need to be devouted to a bunch of Ex Commodore engineers,
executives and support staff (like I said in my other post) who as of
right now offer me NO better solution then what I have and no major
difference to PC clones and Macs. Actually from what I can tell the future
of their platform is TOTALLY in the hands of everyone else and right now
that everyone else is on pretty shaky grounds or not even set in stone. I
have enough of that in the Amiga community.
And no I am not being an a$$hole and I resent being compared to Marc
Barrett (I forgot to add that in a past reply). I am looking at this via
reality, not blind devotion.
Yup.. I have been buying hardware and software from actual AmigaQuote:>>>something nice for a change.

>Oh, and what have YOU done for the Amiga lately, or in the past? Care to
developers and dealers. I have been part of Usergroups involving the Amiga
(Vice-President at one time and acting president at another and before
that as a regular member), I have given opinions and suggestions to Amiga
related companies, I buy magazines, and I advocate the Amiga wherever I go
and keep people off the Internet aware of recent happenings to keep the
Amiga's name in everyone's mind or to let them hear of it for the first
time and to keep and eye out for it in the future. I have wrote letters to
the above said Amiga magazines and have had them published (I have
contemplated doing articles for said magazines also but just haven't done
them yet) and try to join whatever Amiga groups or initiatives I can to
show my support. Etc. Also I am in the works locally of doing something
in print and via TV to help promote the Amiga. I could go on.. do I really
need to? If this isn't doing "something" for the Amiga, then I don't know

>Give me some quotes George. You continually make statements like this 'I
least one other person recently who is an advocate of the PIOS One that
said it also but I forget his name. I am not going to bother to search for
direct quotes, but you can if you want to.. use Dejanews and check this
newsgroup with a keyword search on 80's and/or 80s and I am sure you are
bound to come across them.
Sorry, my mistake by assuming people posting here actually follow up onQuote:>see a lot of people saying' ... who George? If you arwe going to make
what goes on here over the months or for assuming a lot of people read a
majority of the messages here or assuming that people could actually take
my word for something.
That's pretty harsh words coming from you Gary. From what I have seen, RicQuote:>comments, back them up or SHUT UP!!!
Lembree (SP!) never got this heated in the Amiga newsgroups. You ARE the
coordinator of Team Amiga right? Then I would think that you would be in
more of a situation to also see the difference in advocating the Amiga and
advocating the PIOS One.
