An INCREDIBLE find on this Apollo 13 computer! Amiga movie magic


*Perifractic* Whoa, what is this? We’re gonna find it. It’s f*** Oh s*** *Cris Blyth* This a modal yeah, this is from *copyrighted content name* dude. Wow, this is crazy. We can’t show this to anyone *Perifractic* Hello Chip Dippers! Welcome back to Retro Recipes. *talks to Puppyfractic* No, no, no, no no treats for you *switches focus on audience* But I do have a real treat in store for you Well, obviously I do a lot of videos about retro computers and retro gaming But what if we could combine 80’s computers with classic 80s movies? Yeah, I know. You’ve seen them all before. Well, I have found an Amiga 4000 It is a piece of movie history and it was on the set of Apollo 13 *bit of the theme song* Wow, I know right, however, that’s not where the wows end. *switches attention to Puppyfractic* Bow wowz? *switches attention to audience* Because I was going through it with its previous owner Chris Blythe from Team17, *Cris Blyth* Yes it will *laughs* You are not gonna believe what we found on the hard disk. Um, I’ve been doing these videos for for a little over 18 months and this is by far the most incredible experience I’ve had *pop* so stay tuned You’re not gonna want to miss one moment of this. Welcome to Retro Recipes! *talks to Puppyfractic* No, trust me. This is your treat *Retro Recipes theme song* *Cris Blyth quietly* Oh my God! Oh goodness, I guess what the sticker is still on it waiting to be peeled off. There’s some young Englishman maybe next Christmas *sings tune of Last Christmas by Wham!* Next Christmas she peeled off my sticker. *Perifractic* Well, I guess I do have a bit of a reputation for peeling those films but on this occasion I’ll leave it on because speaking of films this Amiga 4000 O40 came from California film company Digital Domain Chris Blythe here was recruited by them after he worked on the worms games for Team17 *worms laugh* And they were doing a clean-out when he rescued this machine from the dumpster. *whoosh* Sidenote as you may know once something’s in the trash It’s legally considered public domain any owners relinquished their rights And so Chris became the machines rightful custodian by saving it And here’s a look at his office or his domain at Digital Domain. Thirty years later he rediscovered it in his shed whilst he was preparing to move to Kenya and Having nowhere to store it He had no choice but to place it on the curbside on trash day, but not before firing a quick email to me So I raced round and this very trashy machine was saved once more. *Perifractic trips* Yep. Oops I’m fine. So yes, here is the very same machine on the set of Apollo 13 So what was it used for? I hear you ask. What? You didn’t? Well, I’m gonna tell you anyway When they set up a moving camera shot on a crane like this, in this case past some huge models *Perifractic makes “neow” sound effect* Because the movies are shot on the film There’s no way for the director to actually playback or see what was recorded The film has to be developed first And so a process called video assist was developed initially by comedian and director, Jerry Lewis. No less Basically a small digital camera called a video tap is attached looking into the film cameras viewfinder and this can relay the live footage from the viewfinder to an external source, in this case it was plugged into the Amigas PAR card or *Perifractic says in American accent* personal animation recorder *Cris Blyth* *Amiga makes loud case-opening sound* *Cris laughs* Holy crap-a-moly. Oh man! *smacks lips* There’s a bad battery in there. I didn’t cut that one out! The toaster cards down and then this one here’s the playback card which gives you video playback This is the drives for the just for that just connects to that. So on that drive what might we find? On that one I don’t know. Wow! *Perifractic* One way to find out *Cris Blyth* I can’t- Who are you? What are you doing in my shed? *Perifractic says quietly* Oh shoot. *Cris* I can’t remember. *Perifractic* This thing was made by DPS in Canada. It was pretty impressive. Connected to the Amiga’s Zorro II card slot, it could record digital video at 576 P and 60 frames per second straight to the hard disk for instant playback And with a 4 gigabyte hard disk, for example, you could store up to 90 minutes of footage So why not use video tape instead? Surely that would be easier and cheaper. Well, the part could provide perfect freeze frames with the director, in this case Ron Howard to review something video couldn’t *machine makes gunshot-like sound* But more than just that – this Amiga was integral in talking to the motion control rig via arex scripts so they could record identical passes of the same scene each time adding more layers to the shot And it turns out I have some first-hand experience with video assist some of you may know I’ve been really lucky to work on a few movies including this one the Star Wars Episode one Phantom Menace identifies a pilot called lieutenant Gavin Sykes If you ever played battles from Naboo on the n64 or PC or other systems You’ll have played through that game as Gavin Sykes. That’ll be the rather Pixelated version but I remember on the set of this movie I had a scene filmed where I was running up these steps to my Naboo N1 Starfighter jumping in pulling the cockpit canopy over pushing buttons, it was a little embarrassing because ’cause the Naboo Gown or cloak was so long I kept getting it stuck in the canopy when I close the canopy over you can kind of imagine other pilots in space They’re pointing at me going, “your cloaks stuck in your door.” Anyway, because it was on film I would never have got to see it because they actually had to cut a ton of stuff out of that movie Well, I was able to go down the steps and then ask the video assist guy Hey can I see that back and I vividly remember him playing it back and I remember him turning to me afterwards and saying hey pretty slick Well, thank you so much, sir. I didn’t think so into shutting the coat in my door Well, anyway, the first thing we mustered is removed that destroyer of worlds, the Varta battery and try to clean up any corrosion that we can see. *power drill whirs* Here is that PAR card itself and I’m going to resist the urge to clean refurbish this entire machine this Stardust contains the very DNA of the film sets of major movies and This is the card that was used to take the video output from the video assist camera tap Processed in here and then fed through to the par card And this is an Ethernet card “Rapidfire”. Put that on ebay *clang* Destroyer of worlds where in our case the moon *click* *clack* Nestle’s here and I thought You little swine! Let’s blow this stardust just off this little area I’m literally breathing in Tom Hanks right now. Wait, that sounds weird. Yeah, this is not a happy area here There is only one thing for it I’m just gonna spray this on and clean it up and I was also able to take a peek underneath the PCB and there was No corrosion under there thankfully which means we don’t have to remove the motherboard Quite a complex job on this machine and I also made a full image backup of all of the drives So with that done Let’s team up with Chris Blythe again here in the retro recipes kitchen and see if we can find Apollo 13 footage on this machine fingers crossed *Cris*Hello, I’m still your that it bailed on He doesn’t have that in the transformer that’s 240 volts T. Yep Yeah, that was a very bad idea yeah, we just kill the first one its I can smell it oh man Chris you idiot We’d definitely kill the first one. Oh boy. Here’s what just happened We were sharing the power cable from another device which was plugged into this power step-up converter It converts us 120 volt power to European 240 volts but this a 4000 is American So we just sent 240 volts through it’s 120 volt power supply Frying it Well, thanks for watching subscribe below and cherry a cheers Cheers for lady fracked Ik she’s been taking apart computers since she was a kid so Let’s see if she can fix this one with the help of a replacement power supply from Raymond Liu on AmiBaY coming up right after this Oh and speaking of supporters I’m scheduling a Q&A with Chris Blythe and you can put your questions to him by simply joining up for my patreon So check it out and pose your questions to Chris, but don’t mention the power supply Yeah, hey guys season’s greetings got to get into the holiday cheer There we go, and I’m gonna fix the power supply I’m gonna try t Oh God oh That’s so sticky, we’re not gonna clean this one because of the history so I’m just gonna pretend like it’s not sticky or heavy, I know this should just slide off but It just slides off so the power supply is It’s right there where it is on all computers screwdriver Screwdriver Duct tape What did you want me to get? Pliers so I’m just gonna slide it down Always a good one ASMR It’s not particularly difficult, I just like to be very delicate with old parts, it’s like me just like you If we follow these cables there’s a salon down here. It is on the PCB And speaking of PCB way PCB way is having their Christmas sale, and you can get up to $200 off your order of PCBs and as we all know PCB stands for printed circuit That was circuit Power circuit rule. That’s just more like That did hurt. Tada. Give it a good shit. I’m just kidding Now, if my magic assistant will hand me the new one I Could of easily just reached over and grabbed it myself Thank You. Fan is clean Plug this back into the PCB Now we’re just putting it all back together first you find the one screw that’s being pain in the Butt. Can you remind us what a those screws like. No I don’t want to Just for the dogs at home There we are two new screws just don’t blow this one up, okay? So now we’re gonna test out my handiwork here is a plug it is already plugged in. It’s already on. Oh my gosh, we hadn’t plugged in yet and I thought the computer started up by magic, okay Looks like it’s up and running and hopefully Houston we won’t have any more problems, Huston, Houston Houston. Who’s Huston? Whitney Houston You’re weird happy holidays off to Perry fractic. He refracted So looking at this machine it is very clear to see Just what it’s been through you can feel this Gunk. I mean this is a real workhorse of an Amiga and I have connected it up to monitor. So let’s see if we can boot into work edge. Houston we have a problem I’m just getting this black screen. Which on an Amiga 4000 usually means a CPU error. This is the O40 processor that another impressive heatsink on it It’s got these little risers here Okay, that wasn’t too tricky Think oh, so my same time some kind of corrosion Around the port there So much of that just went in my eyes, it really looks solidly in place Yeah And Chris Blythe is due back here tomorrow, so I’m on a time crunch fingers crossed Well, I worked on this for a couple more hours But my attention kept being drawn back to this battery leakage area You can see that far bottom-left pin on you to on U216 seems to be corroded to the Adjacent pin. Now this is shaping up to be a long video So I won’t show you all this in detail But I worked on cleaning up this area for another few hours Including using lemon juice to neutralize the alkaline from the battery then cleaning it with alcohol and thoroughly drying it Well I do not see anything untoward. That sound you hear is the Soldering line heating up. So I just want to try and reflow the solder So these are surface mounted and that isn’t really my specialty. I’m kind of old school. I like the through-hole stuff But we can at least try to touch the soldering line to them see if we can reflow solder a little bit Okay, well I’m now on day two of trying to get this thing working and It may be one of those motherboards that is beyond Salvage the corrosion is just in so many of these surface mounted points and Something in this circuit and these hundreds of traces. Here’s I think causing this. Otherwise perfect looking CPU Not to be accessed. I May come back to this repair at another time, but my hunch is that thirty years over leaking battery Have rendered this unsalvageable however this is still history here and That data. Well that hasn’t been corroded So if we could simply swap the power card and this power hard disk into another A4,000 We could still salvage the data. So let’s team up with Chris Blythe again and see what happens all right, so this is looking at our groins We took everything the hard drives under DPS Capture and playback card and put them in this my Amiga my old me Amiga, which is now your Amiga and it works. You can’t have everything we’ve done very well to get anything out of these machines. Look at the mess Like an Amiga explosion ha. So finally we can try to find that Apollo 13 footage Let’s see. Image index. It’s gonna make a preview funnel there. A preview. Just go like that and then view This is amazing. I’m sweating. Oh Aren’t we filming this part? It is. Oh. Oh wow. Okay, this looks good Cancel. Property of Lightstorm Entertainment, okay Whoa What is this we’re gonna find it, it’s Titanic, oh, there’s a modal. Yeah This is from Titanic, dude, wow, this is crazy. Oh Man, this is Titanic. This is the PVR From Titanic when they did the motion control passes, I thought it’s gonna be from Apollo 13, but it’s from Titanic Okay, this is very very even way cooler than I thought it was Apollo 13 is good but Titanic. Apollo 13. We can’t show this to anyone Wow Titanic the movie that quite Raleigh for a long time it was the number-one film in history. Ah In a moment, we’ll get that footage moving and on the note of showing this footage to you guys I’ve sought comprehensive legal advice and there’s two reasons why we can Firstly as discussed because this machine’s ownership was relinquished by the previous owners I am now legally its new owner. So that property has transferred And secondly, the fair use laws of the U.S. Say that for historical or educational purposes it’s okay to show short clips and Well, if a 30-year old Amiga used to make the biggest film of all time Isn’t historical or educational. I don’t know what is That was motion control or? What we’re getting is those are models and there are underwater motion control models What was connected to the cameras recording film was also recording up with this machine? So this machine I can’t believe that. That was on the set of Titanic, Apollo 13, maybe The Abyss Well, the thing is you can see it Oh, that’s a model that’s the Titanic yeah That is the model of the Titanic, this was worth the wait, worth it’s weight in old I know, tell me about it But this looks like That’s something else. Looks like a space no, that’s it this is submarine Rover. That’s a submarine. Yeah It’s all Titanic. We have nothing for Apollo 13. No. Shame on you. Yes I’m so sorry only a more popular movie. But look at that. We took the cards out We put in another machine we boot it up and it works. Can’t do that with a laptop. Can’t. That’s the top of the Titanic. The top of the Titanic? Yeah. And look at that. There’s the front of the Titanic. Wow, that’s a very Distinctive shot. Iconic. How did they get the Amiga 4000 underwater. Well, it’s water proof as you know. Oh right. This is a swing around. This is one of the swing arounds. So this is one that would start far back remember the shot that went from them on the bow of the bridge the bridge of the front of the thing and Then it comes on and sweeps around to the old underneath thing. I’ve never seen it What? What happens at the end? I can’t tell you I don’t spoil of you. What? I’ve heard, I’ve heard stories The fact that we have the number one movie of all time. Mm-hmm Thank You Amiga. Yeah, I know this bananas That’s the submarine again. Oh yeah, that’s a model, model of the submarines. Yeah Well as if this wasn’t incredible enough, I mentioned getting those images moving So after a bit of trouble sorting out NTSC versus power issues we were able to hook up this monitor to the s-video output of the par card and Let’s see if we can actually play back the full motion video And there we have it. Wow. Shall I play something? Can it? Will it play back? Yes it will. Oh my God. The Titanic. The Titanic. Look at that now this is a video tap from the camera so it’s crappy. Wow. I mean that’s not crappy by any means. This is amazing And then this is oh this is the submarines. This is the submarines descending. We’re looking up at the submarine? Yeah. And it’s coming down as we past the Titanic. Holy moly. Yeah, and this footage is probably oh and it’s gonna pan down with it No, this has ever been seen anywhere This is bananas dude. That is amazing. It looks like a drone. A CGI drone That is nuts Oh wait look all the way past and you can scroll. So what’s Mat AIDS That’s a mat Wow, right and then there’s a mat, another mat pass but shorter I guess this was just another test. Some these are you know obviously them trying things out. Oh I don’t know what this was for? Oh their doing timing tests okay to see the fields in the fields of getting picked up were progressive MS 59. Oh, here we go Yeah Chris we have found the Titanic. That’s right. After 30 years almost buried in your shed. Buried in my shed Not my shed. A shed. A Shed. So this was a scene where it went in and then became. . .yeah, and from the looks of it So these are models here So the thing is if they’re filming is film, it would be a God damn nightmare to do all this. So with this They’re able to try things out. Yeah Holy **** Movie history right on these disks. That’s right Wow And guess what? They will not live anywhere else. This is it. And guess what they’re backed up. That’s right. oh Look at this Holy **** Let’s a part taken from the film by the looks of it. So they would use this to cut into the right room. Oh, yeah Because obviously the film certain parts of it already on you and then there’s this one here again That’s a rough shot of him. Looks like it and then this one here oh, oh wow, that’s the big sub. The mother ship So this is again used so that we’ve got some principal photography and then they’re gonna cutting it in in the internet with models But they are filming at the Titanic here. That’s good. So the Titanic stars in Titanic Yeah, that’s, that’s the Titanic right there And this is just being shot and they just be done there half a year. Not that this that’s basically it that’s all that’s there. Thanks a Titanic amount to Cris there for guiding us through that but that’s not quite it for you guys Firstly after we filmed this we discovered one more PAR Drive Which we think might hold those Apollo 13 or Abyss videos But as I no longer have that second a 4000 and I’ve run out of time here I’m not able to try it out But maybe you can see firstly I mentioned my backups and as with the team17 stuff I’m making them freely available on the Internet Archive for you to download under a non-commercial Creative Commons license right now Including that newly discovered drive bear in mind though. You’ll need A4000 with a par card to view the videos They won’t play without it Even on an emulator when chris has since told me that many of the original Titanic data tapes were corrupted by the building’s power supply which they were stored right next to So this might be the only data left But as for the real movie history hard drives themselves put those on Filipe No, seriously They’re in an auction right now Along with the rest of this historic machine all waiting to go to a loving new home with a serious movie memorabilia or Amiga Collector see the link in the description and I’ll keep trying to repair it in the meantime Or mr. Cameron, if you’re watching this just drop me a personal email not be honored to transfer ownership to you. Absolutely No charge just put me in your next movie In all seriousness, though if we’ve learned one thing on this little adventure together. It’s there sometimes if you aim for the stars Though you may not quite get where you intended. You might uncover a buried treasure Beyond your wildest dreams From the depths of space to the depths of the ocean. That’s it from me. Thanks for watching. Comment below. I’ll never let go but cheerio I can tell you what I found today, I found the Titanic They’ve already found the Titanic. Oh no, no, no on the computer. They already have it on the computer. It’s streaming I’m sure you can find it. No, no. No, I found original footage from the movie on a Commodore Amiga Did you find the heart of the ocean? No. Then why are we having this conversation Oh look, Dunkin Donuts. We can get a Leonardo de cappuccino.

  1. This is interesting; I have some Amigas but not a 4K like I wish. I didn't know the 4K uses ATX or at least ATX-like form factor.

  2. Holy cow, I forgot that Apollo 13 has been around for almost 1/4 century already! So PCs and Macs could already do video too back then, but it's hard to imagine that 4GB HDDs existed by then. The biggest I had heard of was 2 (but maybe 4 did already exist anyway). What was the advantage of using an Amiga for video work over a Mac or PC? Just tools that were farther developed? Oh, the motion control too, right? Why wouldn't there already have been a version of that for Windows 95 for Mac OS 7 or something like that?

  3. Why don't YOU guys keep that historic movie equipment? And why did you "run out of time" with that 2nd Amiga? And why wouldn't the new owner of the system be able to use that PAR card for these videos on disk images?

  4. I love this video. I knew the Amigas were used in filmic production as I knew they were used in the production of Babylon 5. But I never knew the Amigas were capable in running actual FMV. And to have a 1GB back in the early 90s would've been crazy expensive.

  6. Amiga made a good product for its time. Even the old Commodore 64 with it's interchangeable cartridges worked well and was simple to operate. Just because they are considered obsolete doesn't mean they were junk. I think I still have an Amiga system in the basement. My children played games constantly growing up.

  7. 10:30 Ladyfractic looks like Motoko Kusanagi in the tank scene form the Ghost in the Shell anime movie; all the muscles poping out trying to remove the cover. This is the live action version.
    Also: banana on the desk among the tools😂🤣

  8. I still have a DPS Perception PVR-2500 inside an old pc here somewhere.. + 2 Seagate Barracuda SCSI HDDs .. gotta put it to work as soon as I find some time ..
    to find out that there are no Hollywood movie history in there.. 🙁

  9. I am only at 8:12 so far, but I can already see the Amiga suffers the same problem as the Macs of the era, all the SMD caps are leaking and destroying the motherboard.

  10. You guys know Titanic was 1997, and Apollo 13 was 1995, right….? The Nineties, not the Eighties…. Sorry, kept distracting me.
    What's amazing is the resilience of the Amiga: a 1997 movie and this was still being used. Just goes to show the IT world with its digital obsolescence that the real world has different ideas!

  11. The strings-command (and a hexdump) of the hdd image-file renders nothing really useful. The hdd seems to be split i pieces/files ending with alot of "ff ff ff…". Testdisk/Photorec can find nothing. If forcing VLC to treat the entire file as a transport stream, it seems to swallow it as a mpeg stream with various birates depending on location in the file. It can, however, not really extract any useful data. (Input stream speed is 455kbit/s according to VLC, and it find something it beleives are a layer3 (mp3 dual mono 8kHz 32bit) stream that varies from 32kbit/s to 384kbit/s.)

  12. Can you please tell me what program was used to make your .img file. I understand that the other drive format is for amiga hard drives, but what software took the larger 4gb .img file? I attempted to mount it in deamon tools and power iso but neither can read it.

    also if there is a way to get ahold of you directly, let me know, I have some interesting info you may like to have regarding the PAR cards. you can email me at [email protected] thanks

  13. As a Titanic and Amiga aficionado, this video was a home run on many levels for me… a few minor timeline clarifications: This specific machine wouldn't have been on the set of The Abyss. The Abyss was shot in 1988/89 and the A4000 didn't appear until 1992. Apollo 13 and the Amiga 4000 are both relics of the 90s, not the 80s. Production on Titanic began in 1996, which was a couple of years after Commodore's ship sank, but of course these machines continued to be used in cool places like the film industry and NASA well beyond the death of the company that created them.

  14. Why don"t you link up with someone like Louis Rossmann to see whether he can fix the motherboard? His channel is focused on repairing Apple hardware but he's fantastic with electronics and it would be an interesting collaboration for both channels.

  15. The cam from this guy is crazy sharp !
    I watch at it on a 5:4 19" Eizo with 480p (because it consume less CPU & GPU Power……..electricity is expensive in germany) and it's sharp like 720p.

  16. Since you have a deep voice it would be nice if you removed some of the base when you record it. and it would be easier to listen too.

  17. Interesting. The hard disk that appears at 27:44 looks like a SCSII model, used on a PVR Perception board, the hardware that replaced the PAR board, from the same manufacturer. I worked with a PAR on an Amiga 4000 and then started using a PVR on a windows PC, later. Very nice video, by the way.

  18. If that machine contained behind the scenes of the infamous salad bowl drop scene, or when Tom Hanks Corvette stalled, or when Blanch said "Are you SCARED?!", I would have offered $1,000,000,000 for it. Those are by far the best scenes in all of movie history.

  19. This brought back memories. I had a PAR card in ‘98 when I was just getting started in 3D animation with Lightwave 3D. I’d wait days to render a scene then playback to a BetaSP deck to record it. The PAR card was all there was back then unless you forked over big money for SGI systems.

  20. For those who care 😝… At 5:11 it's Dutch subtitels and they're saying something like this: "They combine them as good as possible. After that the digital artists come."

  21. Very very cool. I've been spending some time with the dumps and datasheets for the chips on the PAR. The data on the scrub drive is motion jpeg encoded. It looks like the raw payload output from the LSI mapped to drive sectors. There's no FS on the drive I can see, it's very raw. (makes sense) The data itself is paged on disk. seems like a simple enough incremental algorithm. The data payload for the jpeg is seemingly the data section stored in YUV 4:2:2. It's missing the header and quantization tables, which are provided by the LSI chipset. If there is a jpeg or video that has been exported from the PAR software, chances are this could be reconstructed. Failing that I might attempt to dig into the amiga fs to see if there is something I can use to stitch the image header back together. Nice.

  22. If you think that's something I can one up you! This is recently release video from a NASA PC from 1967 that contained Apollo 1 footage on the moon showing all four ASStroNOTS being killed! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WoM2bHfr48

  23. I am from Germany and also had 3 Amiga computers 1 x Amiga 2000 and 2x Amiga 4000/40. In 1995/96 I made this promotional video and the computer animations on the Amiga. Unfortunately the quality of this video is not perfect anymore because I captured it again from a SVHS video. But it's Made by Amiga. All 3D models and scenes were produced on 2 Amiga 4000/40 with the 3D software Imagine3D. 😉 —> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gAzpSlRgHN0

  24. I watched a documentary on the making of Titanic and if I recall, the shots going over the ship were done on a sound stage, model hanging upside down with smoke and lights. Don't think these were done under water, but it's been a while since I have seen that documentary. Please, if anyone knows different, I'd love to hear.

  25. I visited two colleagues when they worked on the film. For everyone who thinks they didn't use cgi in 1996: They had a (windows) NT department and an sgi (silicon graphics) department (and apparently some amiga's). The NT department was mainly lightwave3d, at the sgi department they used wavefront and nuke which was their in house compositing software, later sold to the foundry. If I remember correctly they didn't film the scale models under water, they just used a lot of smoke to get the right effect. They had 2 models at the same scale to film the transition from the wreck to the version of the ship before it sunk. For the live shots they built the decks at 3/4 scale somewhere in the desert. They composited the falling people after the ship broke in half from actor to 3D dummy to a splash they filmed by throwing rocks in the harbor. Feel free to correct me and add more info!

  26. Funny and interesting video. When in out trash or dumpster is anything you and all other in germany would be a thief when you take it. Because when it is for trashing the rights of that thing what ever goes atomatically to the goverment and they are the new owner, only to get with the truck to the deposit station to get trashed. And when the garbage collection cames to pick up the trash and see you that you will take stuff, it can for you really expensive because of stealling stuff.

  27. I would have thought that they were using SGI machines, were Amiga computers really that good??? Unless this is a different Titanic, I thought it came out in 1997, that would be 22 years ago, not 30, but who's counting, it's still cool!!! Nice find!!!

  28. I do not recall how I made it: DIY extended to 4 more slots for Kitchen synk, and another card I do not remmenber, then build a taller cabinet, Also remember myself soldering a bunch of wires to extend to a multiport I found in the trash, It worked fine for 4 years (hxxps://www.bigbookofamigahardware.com/bboah/media/download_photos/kitchensync_1_big.jpg)

  29. Every retro repair guy is crying now.. battery corrosion is so little… Done mutch worse ones.. this is easy fix for us.. use a scope.

  30. "copyrighted content name dude. Wow. This is crazy we can't show this to anyone." Just have Hillary Clinton email it to everyone, I'm sure that would be OK.

  31. You can't show it? Then why make a video about it? Talk about clickbait. If I ever see your channel name again it's an instant skip. Good try you seem like a bunch of wankers to me.

  32. We never went to the Moon. Stars are nuclear they emit radiations on all frequencies 24/7. The Universe is a big nuclear oven. Our planet is protected by an atmosphere and a Magnetosphere. We do not have the technology to replace the Magnetosphere protection yet. People need to go to a University an learn about the Electromatic Spectrum just like I did and WATCH the Moon landings footage. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fvxw_OKQWDg

  33. When you mentioned Paul Rendez designed a new standalone A4000 motherboard, you are a bit misinformed. He has not designed it. He took an old Commdoreo A4000 motherboard, removed all the components from it and sent the bare PCB to a company which does all the work (reverse-engineers the PCB back to CAD files PCB layer by PCB layer). Then he run a funding campaign to collect people's money to pay for the company to do the job. The design is by Commodore, he just paid a company to convert the PCB back to CAD files.
