This will be my last post for the online store. As of October, I will be slowly winding down operations on my online store and by December, I will be officially taking down the website.I want to thank all of you that supported it in the past. Both the Amiga lounge website and the CoCo lounge website domains will be going dark as of January 1 and domains will be up for sale. I will continue with the youtube videos though.
_thanks all.

Thanks guys, I am not leaving the Amiga though, I will always have at least 1 around to play with. And of course I will still be lurking here from time to time. It's just time I got away from living like a hoarder and live a bit more minimal. My goal is to be able to move everything I own in a small Mini Van at a moments notice, If for some reason I passed tomorrow, it would take weeks to dig out everything now. LOL

I am starting to dump all the "non- selling" stuff off of the site like books and manuals etc. I have added more hardware and cards - and will be slowly adding and removing all month.
I did get an upgraded and Modded Atari STFM in just yesterday and its up now (NTSC). The site is not completely dead yet.

as always, if you want the site to remain up and support it without buying (which some people were asking, because shipping rates are insane) you can always donate a buck or two to help keep the site(s) alive. There is a "donate" button on each page of the Amigalounge.com.
But so far in the last 2 years,no one from the Amiga community has donated a penny- just the CoCo community.
If I get enough help and support between now and Christmas, I will keep the sites open and alive.
You can also donate directly through Paypal with amiga (at) amigalounge.com.
thanks

Prices are jumping daily- both UP and down...so you best be quick :lol:
Remember, I am not here daily that much anymore, so your best bet to get a hold of me is through e-mail.

In order to reduce stock even more, from now until Dec.31 ALL purchases will include a free gift. Could be a book, Magazine, Game, Cover CD and or more.
Also, any donations over $20 to the lounge, will also receive a free gift, including overseas people, just remember to include your address (I will cover the cost of shipping)- The bigger the donation, the more valuable the gift will be.(yes, it will be Amiga "stuff")
you can send the Paypal donation to amiga (at) Amigalounge .com if the buttons are not working for you (some people say they do and don't).
It's just my way of saying "thanks"

I have really cut prices to mostly just shipping estimates on 90% of my merchandise for this sale in order to liquidate stock. Also, any Paypal donations or greatly Appreciated. Just 36 Hours left in this blow out sale.I am unemployed ATM so this helps me out a bit.

Hi Quarkx,

Forgive me for maybe being a bit slow here, but when exactly is your store shutting down? Do you have a final closing date planned?

quarkx
15th November 2013, 00:14
yes, the exact date is Dec 31 @ midnight MDT. in a perfect world, I would have everything sold by then, but it looks like I can't give away some of this stuff for the price of postage.

hey Glen, here is the 'finished product' on that Tandy 386 you sold me a month or 2 ago, gave it some upgrades.

upgraded (built-in) vga from 256k to 512k via a pair of 44256s (adds some 256 color modes as well as a 1024x768x16c mode)

pulled the 1.2M 5.25" FD and put in a DVDROM

added a ZIP100 Parallel drive (this is actually great for DOS games, i have only half filled the first disk so far (i have 17...)(got given 2 ZIP100p drives for free last year..guy didnt know if they worked or not...only 1ps tho)

added a 1571 drive via an XE/XM1541 parallel port adapter i bought last year, works great through StarCommander.

been great fun getting back to the old DOS days with this thing so far.

(particularily the first version of Civilization and Starflight, which are 2 of my favorite games of all time...just dont *feel* the same on DosBox)
(oh...and Wolf3D...)

now to track down a working ISA ethernet card...

thanks very much.

quarkx

Cool, the ISA Nic was working, -that was about 6 years back, but I only used it in DOS. I had the "backpack" CD Rom drive on it and put it on a KVM switch with my Tandy MMPC (486/100- Overdrive)

alright, i downloaded the original install 'disk' from the net card manufacturer, did a complete uninstall and re-install of all drivers and protocols.....and seems to work fine now...probably reset everything back to default settings... (even though i'd uninstalled and reinstalled with the existing drivers on the system before)

(actually surprised they still had the DOS/WFW3.11 stuff available these days...)

pulls an IP off my router in any case...now to install an old version of Nutscrape or InternetdEstroyer....
