Subject: Drive not doing anything - again
Hi everyone. Unfortunately, my drive still isn’t working. I opened my floppy drive and turned on my Amiga, but nothing was happening - the small motor didn’t spin, the little magnetic hand wasn’t reading the disk, long story short nothing is happening. What is the cause of that? I’m sorry that I’m probably already boring with my problems xD

Subject: Amiga Linux?
I've heard that "Linux is the new Amiga." With that in mind, has anyone thought about a new Linux distro which might be called Amiga Linux or something similar? Or would that be impractical?
(Or where to get the best Amiga themes for Linux)

Subject: A1200 Screws
A common question, it seems, but does anyone have a complete list of all screws and fixings needed for an A1200 case? I know I'll need all the bits from AmigaKit like case screws, drive bolts, and hex screws, but what about the LED PCB screws?
Considering this question has come up a few times over the years and given our apparent skill at losing them, a canonical list of all screws for all Amiga's seems like a useful tool!
Subject: An argument for a new standalone FPGA-based Amiga aimed at the retro community
As prices of used Amigas continues to rise, and the supply of aging hardware continues to dwindle, there needs to be a solution beyond emulation that keeps this community alive.
I'd love to see something aimed at the retro community for running classic Amiga games, applications, and peripherals with very high compatibility. Something like MiSTer but custom made to be an Amiga from the ground up, not a generic CPU board running an Amiga core. Yes, I know there's the Apollo V4+ Standalone, but it sure as hell doesn't look like an Amiga, and from what I can gather, legacy compatibility just isn't there because their focus is on being a next gen SysInfo beast.
Instead, I'm talking like what Analogue did with the Super NT, which allows you to play original SNES cartridges: "We spent thousands of hours engineering the system via FPGA for absolute accuracy. Unlike the knock off and emulation systems that riddle the market today, you'll be experiencing the 16-bit era free of compromises. The Super Nt is designed to preserve video game history, with the respect it deserves."
The Amiga community deserves the same!
I wish someone would license the Amiga name, dust off Commodore's custom chip schematics, and get them recreated 1:1 inside a FPGA. Add a decent amount of RAM, RTG graphics, selectable Kickstarts, some legacy ports, along with USB, SSD, ethernet, WiFi, HDMI. And of course an extremely cycle accurate 680x0 series FPGA based CPU.
No need to recreate a wedge style case or big box Amiga. Keep it small, like a Mac mini, but style it to match the classic beige Commodore look. I'm thinking like an A3000 but 1/4 the size. Bundle it with an appropriately styled keyboard and mouse. Look at how cool the Atari VCS or SuperNT looks. It's not trying to be a modern design. It's appealing to our retro passions, which is frankly, why we're all here.
I can dream, can't I?

Subject: Pimiga 3.0 Audio tweak.
Just worked this out and it's awesome for non purist Amiga fans. I'm using a DAC hat on the Pi connected to a Technics amp on some big old celestion speakers. Installing pulseaudioeffects allows calibration of a graphic and DSP in Linux which gives some amazing sound. Opening Amiberry in pimiga, turning off the filter and selecting PulseEffects as your output will give you the most crystal clear amped sound you ever heard from your games, demos and protracker. Save the setting in Amiberry and it uses that as default. Turn Turrican 2 up to 11 and enjoy🤟

Subject: fs-uae command line arguments documentation?
I've been thinking to use fs-uae (on Linux), but from the command line.
However, I can find no documentation for the command line options.
"--help" gives you a URL on the web-site, that URL on the web-site has some pages which list some information about some subjects, but is a million miles away from a full list of command line options - so, for example, I've no idea how to specify a kickstart file.
Does anyone here know where the fa-use command line is documented? or if it is documented?
