Why are amiga users so deluded?

Postby birdy-scc » Tue Apr 27, 2010 4:22 pm

I was banned from an amiga forum today for what they said was trolling and that the ban was permanent - no warning was given. All I did was point and laugh at some freak who was pretending to be 16 and the people who dropped their pants to welcome him, all the while lapping up the genuine troll's poo and telling him it tasted of rainbows. I'd love to meet some of these 40 yr old freaks to tell them what I think to their faces - but apparently they can only leave home when their mothers are available to drop them off... I wish I was joking about that, but I'm not...

I know there are people in the ST world who are deluded fools too, desperate to cling to a 20+ year old mentality, but it seems a much smaller percentage and for that I'm very grateful. I'm a realist and I enjoy the crudities of modern adult existence, combined with the odd game of Chubby bastard Gristle - is that so very fornicating strange?!

I'd rather not say which one, but it's pretty popular.

I've no problem with fans of either machine really, but when they allow their desperation to maintain their perception of the scene to be more important than common sense then it's only fair to point that out.

I've run forums for years and can usually spot a false account within minutes - in this case I was amazed that they couldn't do the same, but chose to believe in rainbows and unicorns instead... pathetic.

The biggest irony of it is that everyone involved in either scene should be at least 30 years old by now - yet they behave as if they're still children. So no swearing!

Eh.. we kind of have a couple of 14-15 year olds here as well as a couple of young sceners (early, very early 20's). You forget the fact that teenagers get to have all sorts of interests...

There's a big difference between a child and pretending to be one.

well, it's on EAB.

well dude honestly I can't really see why you're so winded up by this.

yeah, it's a crappy site. He might be a liar, or he might be a really 16 yo. It's none of our business. If he's a big fat liar, it's his problem. There's nothing wrong in just being nice, maybe he's actually 16 or maybe has some problem ? Playing nice doesn't necessarily mean being gullible too. You have to admit you didn't leave much choice to the mods there. I check EAB daily many times, but I never visited that thread a second time, so I didn't notice it until you posted it here ... You should have done what I did too me thinks ...

And I can't see what this has to do with amiga users or any particular retro community ...

Why didn't you follow your own 'wisdom' and keep your mouth shut on this thread then? Hypocrite.

It's exactly that kind of protectionism that annoys me. Why are you protecting something that is a lie?

As for their traffic wardens, they're clearly fornicating pricks if they allow such bullshit in the first place, so cluck em.

because at first I thought it was some kind of 'amiga vs atari' flame war and you got banned for voicing the atari side in a cruel manner. but it was not the case.

what you fail to notice is, we are not protecting anything. The guys there are 'playing to the rules', just being nice, in case it's a real person. honestly I can't be bothered, so I never got involved in the thread, and will not ever post there probably, and I would be a much happier person if you didn't make me read it actually. anyway, yeah, they're not protecting anything, and you don't know if it's a lie. and I couldn't care less about if he's real or not, so I won't be posting in this thread too, I have a life, thank you. my suggession to you is to drink some cold soda, smoke your fave tobacco or stuff and get over with it. :angel:

I made you read it? How exactly did I do that? You posted the link.. I didn't post the link precisely because it was just a simple rant about a bunch of deluded twats and traffic wardens. The wheres and whys were irrelevant to that.

As far as getting over it is concerned - that's what I was doing by posting the rant here. Maybe you're one of those far more sophisticated types who repress their feelings and thoughts?

Amiga users are so deluded because they spent like £50 more on a computer that isn't better enough than an ST to actually warrant the extra money.
Also because all their amigas suck next to my stock falcon. :lol:
hmmm:/
I have an ste 4mb... with a 20mb powerdrive slimline and a cumana external fdd.
And a falcon 14mb w/ ct63 + ctpci

The Atari ST and the Amiga inhabit seperate but parallel universes. They are both children of the Motorla 68000. I have been a fan of this microprocessor family since the early 1980s. In addition to 3 Atari Megas and 2 mid to high end tricked out Amigas, I have a keyboard synthesizer, one rackmount sampler and one drum machine sequencer that run off a 68000. They are all great machines.

I find this squabling over trifels amusing. There isn't nearly the quality and quantity of MIDI software for the Amiga that exists for the ST and, conversely, there isn't nearly the quality and quantity of good graphics and video software for the ST/TT/Falcon that exists for the Amiga. Both the Atari and the Amiga platforms have their virtues and their weaknesses. Both are from the same era and use the same processors. If all you ever did with either of them was to play games, I can understand this sort of emotional attachment but some of us used them both back in the day and still now use them for some serious art and music. :? :? :oops:

birdy - either you are a troll or you yourself are one of those "40 year olds with a 16 year old mentality" you talk of. My advice to you is to shut it.

Or what, you boring, timewarped, kunt?

You've got some fornicating sense of value to call me a troll while insulting someone who's never said a fornicating word to you.

I guess that you're exactly one of those weirdos who exists only in the past? hahaha

Everyone existed in the past... so everyone is one of those ? :roll:
Noone can exist in the future only.... because if one exist in the future only then that "person" is non-existing.
Well.... then that can't be a "person" can it....

That depends on how you consider the future. For example if time is a dimension like all the others than you can move in both direction and it exists just like up or down, left or right, fordwards or backwards, the future already exists we are just following the slow path.. An alternative is that the future is being created in any given moment so you can only move forward into it. The third option is the one of the many worlds, everything can be changed by a time traveller and all paradoxes are resolved by the fact that each movement in time is also a movement between universes as the many world interpretation states.

and thank you "Dr Who" for that rousing explanation! :D

Methinks I'm going to wander off now for something simple,
like whether or not dropping a huge rubber band into a Black
Hole would loop back on itself, thus meeting the requirements
for the definition of "infinity squared".

Or perhaps I'll just eat some Frosted Shredded Wheat for
breakfast... :)

Mathematically time can run either way; it makes no difference to the equations at all.

In fact there are models that suggest broken crockery is flying back together all over the place, but we can't see it.

I fell across a website recently where you can buy new A1200s (if that is the right model number.)

Personally I think all 680x0 boxes are fantastic; if the microcomputer world had gone that way we would be a lot better off. The AmigaOS is based on Tripos which if you know OS history is one clever piece of software. The QL's software has clever aspects too; the world would be very (well a bit) different if Sony had given Uncle Clive a good price on 3.5drives.

I would love an Amiga and a QL (especially) to sit next to my ST. I do have Mac Plus 1Mb, but it died (after a hour) the second time I switched it on for a soak test. Apparently it is fixable but is beyond me to do so (as you lot know pressing keys in the correct sequence is a feat for me!)

I had my ST on for well over a week in a soak test. ( Or maybe I was playing Sim city )

Either way did time really pass when I turned the tv back on or was it just an illusion?

I think A1200's were used in Bablyon 5 for time travel. On Channel 5, at 5 O'clock.......... hmmmm strange I never noticed that!?

Here is that website........

Mac Plus's generate a lot of heat because they are are a small box with not enough vents and no fan plus the PSU is internal. It doesn't help that box is tall and narrow so the heat is carried upwards and cooks everything. It is a shame it doesn't work because it such an attractive design. It would have been cool to carry it into the uni' library for work................
