I just bought the C64 mini.  It's sooo cute.  Joystick kinda sucks but it works

If you have a 'Amiga' A500 Mini.  The A500 HD8+ Replica  Found on eBay is awesome.
Not sold or made by me!  I just bought one.
To me, this replica ALMOST completes the look of the A500 mini. Someone needs to make a tiny replica
of the Amiga mouse.  Now that would complete the look! ha  Oh, yeah.  a tiny monitor!  OMG!  ha


Workbench for the A500 Mini
www.aminimiga.com
'A Pre-setup Workbench for your A500 Mini'
Download the big 'A500Mini Edition' then copy files to 32gb flash drive
Copy ROM files to ..\AMiNIMiga\Hardfolders\Shared\roms
Tell A500 to run USB device
Workbench loads up. Tons of games/apps.

A fantastic website that converts other websites for viewing on retro computers
FrogFind.com - Converting Foxnews  (as an example)
FrogFind.com and from same guy: 68k.news  (current google news)
----------


You can try www.textise.net to view text only sites, but.. they are HTTPS only

You want a web page converted to HTTP? Let me know.  I'll see if it will work


Proxy server for windows?   I use WebOne.   (Win, OSX, Linux)
'HTTP 1.x proxy that makes old web browsers usable again in the Web 2.0 world.'

 I run it on my Windows 10 pc then set the retro pc's to connect to a proxy server.
This also solves much of the HTTPS troubles.
Works good (so far) and is silly easy.




Websites that seem to kinda work for Retro's (Non-HTTPS sites)
