@Ralf, it was called the 'IBM Sidecar', and worked fine on the A500 pointing the wrong way
Yes, I admit it.....I'm an old Amiga user, (or should that be 'a user of old Amigas'?). I've bought every version of Cloanto's 'Amiga Forever' and Amithlon, (very, VERY quick), when it was available.
I've had an A500, A600, A500+ and numerous attachments - SupraTurbo28 anyone? All sold off when I migrated to my ultimate - the A3000. (AGA sucks, ECS RULEZ!!!!
My poor 'old' 1990 A3000 with CyberStormPPC 180, PicassoIV (including Paloma and Pablo II), 132MB, A2065, HDs, 1.76MB floppy(!) and Wizard mouse now lies lonely and semi-forgotten in the wardrobe. I've often thought about selling it off but just can't bring myself to do it
And yes, every damn day on the PC I really, REALLY miss ARexx - VBScript is a complete dog's breakfast by comparison, and all these bl**dy uncommunicative programs........AAAARRRRGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
60 programs to do what you could do with 10 really good ones plus ARexx. Bill Hawes was my hero, WShell still can't be beat IMHO.

A new emulator that has appeared, (well not really new, more 'tuned'): http://xamiga.net/index.html
....Jeeezz....I'm feeling inclined to get the A3000 out and fire it up again......
EDIT: One of my favourite games that I always returned to on the Amiga, (after killing things in whatever the latest fps was), was Larn - and now I play it on the PC in the guise of ULarn, 2.91MB
When a Level III Demon Lord belts you one from nowhere......the suspense
