First pictures of MicroA1 Industrial motherboard
by hesdeadjim on 10/18/2004 07:11 PM
Hardware wizards at work: The new AMIGA stuns users with its unique quality manufacture.

We are proud to present you with a first hands-on report of the MicroA1 Industrial motherboard that we did at the Big Bash 2 feast held at the Stafford Hall Community Centre Hampton Court PETERBOROUGH PE3 7LD. Surging through the packed crowd of tens of thousands of eager True Amigans we managed to secure a look at this wondrous new board.

"I was literally stunned," said Darren Glenn, True Amigan and self-declared software sherrif, as we interviewed him. "It's hard not to be when you touch a short on this board. Ouch."

Passing-by users were also stunned by touching the serial port, it being charged up to a juicy 300 volts AC. When we asked Alan Redhouse, Chief Technology Officer and CEO of Eyetech Group Ltd. about this rather unique feature he said, "That's just a modification to allow more power through the serial port, because the ATX power connector isn't soldered very well. Stop Eyetech-baiting you stupid Buck supporters. It works, doesn't it? Definitely worth half a grand."

He went on, "We think of the future in our efforts to make the hardware we built state of the art in every field known to modern Amiga community."

And we also saw a familiar friendly face there, our old friend Mike Bouma, long time Amiga enthusiast and fair and balanced freelance journalist. "The addition of solder compound splashed around amateurishly in strategic places of the new motherboard reminds us all of the amazement and awe people were struck with when a smart sharp-eyed Amigan once noticed a 2M/8M CHIP RAM jumper on the A4000 motherboard," he said.

For your pleasure we added an exclusive preliminary picture from Eyetechs forthcoming advertisement campaign. We're sure your mouths will be watering for this spectacular offering.

    The man making it was grabbed and dragged off by Chinese secret police as he held it, damaging the board.

thanks for getting permission to use the image from my server and also thanks for not getting my name right, its Darren Glenn, notice the 2 n's in Glenn? or is that too much for your singular brain cell to cope with?

      "sorry, yes we did make ourselves look stupid" will suffice.

        I'm sorry. Maybe we should tell everyone we're leaving the Amiga community in shame, drum up lots of support, and...not.

    The typo has been fixed. We do like to make our articles as accurate as possible, after all. :)

    The spellchecker has also been decapitated. Yes, it's a bit extreme, but obviously as you say he only has one brain cell and deserved it. This is a bit strange since one brain cell isn't enough to control a large intricate human body, far less be enough to actually speak, move, and spellcheck in the first place, but you must be right. Anyway, one sweep of my katana was all it took. From now on we'll get kjetil to spellcheck.

Not wanting to be outdone by Eyetech, Genesi have just announced a new,smaller Peg2.
Bill Buck,CEO of Genesi has claimed the new board is 50% smaller than the current Pegasos2.
When asked how they managed such a feat, he said "Well,it`s pretty simple, I asked Gerald Carda to cut all the components in half. Obviously we can only sell these boards as developer/beta boards, so there`s no guarantee that it`ll work as advertised"

$3,900???!!!! OMGWTF LOL!
