Due to all kinds of activities I have not been able to start working on my office. But I will start working on my office really soon now. I really need to start with it since I am out of a computer room now. The missus has started clearing it out and turning it into her hobby room. Lucky enough I was able to put up a fight and get some kind of agreement so I can still leave my A1SE in the room for now. As you can see from the picture there is not much male spirit left in that room.
I started a new section on the site called The Bucket List. A list of things a really really want to have. I will keep adding things to it since there is so much I still want to have. First to make the list is a PCMCIA network card for my A1200. I found one on AmigaKit which I might order. I just need to butter up Mrs W a bit so I can place the order. Seeing what happened to my computer room I believe I might get permission.
Also A-EON confirmed this week that the AmigaOne X1000 betatesters have been supplied with the latest version (update 3) of AmigaOS4.1 with their Nemo 2.1 motherboards. I am really considering to purchase Amiga OS4.1. I might do it together with the PCMCIA network card for my A1200. Lately I see a lot of software released that will only run on OS4.1. I think it is time I upgrade.
Something I am really looking forward to is beta testing AmiSystemRestore from Chris Handley. I already have access to it but I was not able to give it a try earlier this week. It will have to happen this weekend. I will write about it in my next column.

I see that your computer room is under occupation! Not an unknown phenomenon.. 😉
Good to hear that you can keep your A1 there until the office in your garage is ready.
I can highly recommend a PCMCIA network-card from AmigaKit. I’ve got the wireless one myself. Is that the one you’re going to get?

It is all girly now. 🙂
I was going for the ethernet one but the wireless one is about 10 euro more. I think I will order the card and OS4.1 at the same time.
I can’t remember but do you know if there is a tool that will allow you to mount adf files on the Amiga 1200?

You can use the diskimage device. This one supports, .DMS, .ADF and so on. 🙂 Check out the readme here: http://aminet.net/package/disk/misc/diskimage.m68k-aos
There’s also a ADF Device, which is just for .ADF: http://bfugl.dk/Download.asp
Good luck on your purchases!
