Wc 2015 : Can you bring an Amiga ?

Postby Danny D » Mon Sep 28, 2015 1:21 pm

We currently have 10 confirmed Amigas. We need 12.

Can you bring an Amiga with you? Do you want extra free beer ?

Chris will bring an A500 and I will bring a 1084S. Note that my 1084S requires 120V input so I am bringing a travel transformer that looks like it should work based on the ratings.

Ok. If still lacking, then urge people to pack one of their amigas. Im sure that could provide an extra amiga or two.

One point about hardware - power plug adapters.

I was just throwing some travel adapters in my bag as always when going abroad, but then I remembered it's Ireland and I believe it's the same as UK. So no need for my adapters! On the other hand, those travelling from elsewhere in Europe may need to be aware.

EU plugs actually fit UK/IE sockets, it's the other way around that doesn't work.

So yes, bring adapters, but don't panic if there's not enough.

Extra tidbit just to make myself clear - if your plug requires ground (like an Amiga PSU, I think), then yes it's 100% better to use an adapter.

For smaller appliances like a mobile phone charger etc, I've been doing this for almost 10 years now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fi5_CTBnDgc
