Upgrading my Amiga 4000 with a Hybrid AmigaOS 3.1.4/3.9 system to AmigaOS 3.2 - Episode 101

This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am upgrading my Amiga 4000 from AmigaOS 3.1.4 up to Amiga OS 3.2 - but this is no ordinary installation. My machine started life as an AmigaOS 3.9 machine for years, and was updated via script to AmigaOS 3.1.4

Join me as we try together to see if it will take the new upgrade or if the entire things will crash and burn. Want to buy a copy of Amiga OS 3.2?

This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast, I am upgrading my Amiga 1000 with my Apollo Vampire V2 from AmigaOS 3.1.4 to AmigaOS 3.2 - Join me as I show you how to both use a GoTek and the .ISO file from the CD to upgrade your machine. I discover a few little issues, but nothing we could not overcome.

The Amiga PiStorm Review - (And it's not $11) - Episode 97

 This week on 10 Minute Amiga Retro Cast I am reviewing the new PiStorm open source accelerator for our A1000/A500/A2000 Amigas. Is this the Golden Goose we have been waiting for, or a big old Goose egg? Spoilers: It is somewhere in between... Join me as I talk about what's involved in setting this complicated beast up, and as I explore why it does not quite act like you think it might.

**Addendum: The CHIP RAM Speed issue looks like it was associated with a commodity loaded by Best WB - Working with one of the Devs, we came up with a few ideas, mostly related to mouse driver / middle mouse wheel driver problems. I disabled all my commodities to be thorough, and the CHIP RAM access sped up and is now only about 10% slower than normal instead of 30%. I re-enabled the commodities... And cannot recreate the problem I have been having for a week. Silly Computers... Check out the Github here for the PiStorm: How about joining the Discord Server? Meet me on the Socials!
