Commodore Amiga 4000 (1992) - Using It In 2014 (Online, Internet Radio and Gaming)

I recently got my hands on my dream Amiga, the daddy of the range, the Commodore Amiga 4000!

It's upgraded with a Picasso IV RTG graphics card, BigRam+ 256mb RAM expansion, 68040 CPU at 25mhz, MAS Player MP3 decoder, X-Surf 100 Ethernet and USB 2.0 and Workbench 3.9.

Play Games From USB Stick On the Amiga! - Gotek Floppy Emulator

Some enterprising Amiga fans have modded the very cheap USB Floppy Drive emulator, the Cortex Gotek!

This nifty little device allows you to play Amiga games, software and more from USB sticks for a very low price.

I went to my first ever retro gaming/computing event this weekend, the amazing Revival 2014 in Wolverhampton.

Here's a few of the pickups, a bit of footage and a good old fashioned show report.

I was joined by Ravi, who you can find on Youtube here: https://www.youtube.com/user/the4mula
