Amiga 500 Pixelart, Section LogoSome time ago I became proud owner of Amiga 500 rescued from the attic. Although I’ve always been fascinated with Amiga, I couldn’t buy it during heyday of the platform. Quarter of a century later I finally have a chance to explore and tinker with Commodore A500.

This section will provide perspective of a newcomer to Amiga platform as I learn hardware and software basics, restore A500 to prime condition and explore hardware mods and projects. I do have some electronics experience, mostly testing and swapping broken components and hope to start building circuits maybe even design one or two as I progress with Amiga.
