The Amiga is awesome.  It came with a GoTek drive in place of the floppy drive.  A USB thumb drive contains hundreds of games that can be loaded via  a menu.  This is an Amiga 500 -- the composite out is in black and white only (I think they really wanted buyers to also purchase a monitor).  I've ordered a little board that converts to composite, S-Video, or VGA from a nice fellow in Sweden.  Once that arrives, I plan to explore the games a lot more.

The composite/svideo/vga adapter arrived from Sweden, and it works awesome.

A recent Patreon-exclusive video by The Nosweargamer inspired me to hang this little shelf for knick-knacks above my computer monitor  I found the shelf at Goodwill for $2 and gave it a coat of white paint.  I think I need more knick-knacks now.

An Ikea picture frame makes a pretty nice cart display case. Added hooks to the bottom for the console keychains.

Finally!  I found a tiny Sony Trinitron.  9" model.  I've been an LCD guy for a long time, just because they are so much smaller and lighter than CRT TV's.  But I always kept my eye out for a small Sony, and I'm so happy to have found one.  The Sony Trinitron tubes have the very best picture quality for CRT TV's.

 

Here's a picture of me testing using an Atari flashback.   I'm going to dig out my NES so I can play those light gun games in style.
