I don't have an FZ-10, so not for me, but why not use an IDE to Compact Flash adapter instead of a hard drive?

I use those for my Amigas and they work great. Less power draw, might fit inside the case...

Just a thought..

Nice to see the 3DO is still pretty active...

In the theater.
You've never been to my local theater obviously. :-)

Although, I admit, if I don't pay more for the popcorn and soda than I did for the movie, it just feels wrong..

Let's see.. When did I join here? Late June 2009? I remember it vividly.... I got my first 3DO in June of 2009.

What I think we need, but it might be beyond me.. I'll poke at it in my free time (when I get some :-) ) is.. a port of SDL...

I can definitely see this happening, if you can get it to the TV manufacturers. They are already embedding streaming in TVs..

Got an Amiga again!!

I had a 500, and then a 1200, back in the day. Before I sold out and went PC to make money. Been wanting to get back into it, preferably with a 1200, but they are too infrequent and pricey. So I decided to just get back into it and picked up a 500 with 1M and 2 drives. No monitor or modulator yet, s...
