splatterbabble - 2010-02-02 Motorola 68000 processors still get mad play in Telecommunications. People that still program for these make loot.
Severian - 2010-02-02 The 680x0 instruction set (based somewhat on PDP & VAX) is far more sensible and usable than the kludged up and bizarre x86, which seems to have been based on confusion and hate for developers.
Stopheles - 2010-02-02 I still miss the Amiga on some level. Deluxe Paint II was instrumental in my eventual taking up oil paint as a medium while in high school.
Architeuthis Tux - 2010-02-02 You know, I used to miss the Amiga too. Then I recently agreed to be interviewed by some guys for work I did a million years ago so I got out my old 1200 and recovered all the data and got it working under emulation.
All of my nostalgia died when I had to debug the startup-sequence file.
BHWW - 2010-02-02 A friend of mine used to work at a public access TV channel back in '01 or 02' and they were still using an Amiga to do the graphics for schedule bumps and titles and the like. Or so he said.
boner - 2010-02-02 The only working Amiga I've ever seen was being used by the local cable TV channel for titles.
splatterbabble - 2010-02-02 I worked for CBS as recently as 2007 and they still used the Amiga and Color Basic for title swipes.
I miss making .MOD files, but I use an Apple Performa 550 from 94 for that. Good ol' Sound Trekker.
Syd Midnight - 2010-02-02 I worked with public access in '98, the local cable station's studio ran on an Amiga and they had no plans to change it in the 00's because it does the job.
It's cute, sometimes when you're flipping past the community bulletin board channels you see a GURU error
