Found a Amiga 600 keyboard

Following on from my first blog entry, I am getting an Amiga 600 to work on a new project to upgrade it.

As part of this, I already know that I need to fix the keyboard which is in terrible yellowed condition.

Fortunately I have located a much whiter keyboard on Ebay today, which I have also purchased and awaiting it's delivery from overseas.

I include some photos of this item from the seller's listing since I don't have it yet - can't wait to install it in the Amiga 600 when I get both of them!


As I did a quick Zune GUI for minunzip (which now was also ported to AmigaOS4 by kas1e), Carsten Siegner sent me the sources for his MorphOS program "InstantZip". Thanks for that!

It was a little bit hard, to get it compiled and at least somewhat working on AROS, especially, if you only have a few minutes spare time now and then to fix the problems.

As it seems, AROS ListView does not support mulitselection, I switched to NList-classes and now it has some basic functionality, it can at least extract single files from an archive, as you can see below.

X500 Plus Mechanical Keyboard

I'm typing this post on my new X500 Plus mechanical keyboard which I picked up from the Post Office this morning. It's so good I felt compelled to write a review and post a few photos!
