        Well it certainly could be's got to be quite a
task to have an archive like that, especially one that grows so much
each day. My earliest post is showing from 1995, about the time I
really started gathering these machines. I did find a post that I
had lost my copy of some time back, that provided some info I needed
on a set of pinouts though! BTW, here's a rather optimistic post,
cut and pasted direct from Google:

Commodore is reportedly buying out amiga! Hoorah!

Amiga is an amazing machine. 68K, 128K of RAM, video chips that make
the c64 look like a VIC, sound chips, yow!

Rumor puts the price at $1000. This for a machine with the power
of a Macintosh with super graphics. I can't wait!
