John's Amstrad Page

Amstrad CPC464

This page is about the Amstrad computer system I used to use at home,
it's software, and expansions.
There are also some links to other Amstrad Web Pages and Sites.
I have included additional information
about the enjoyment I get out of my Amstrad.



My Amstrad System

I think I must have fallen in love with the system, as I spent more and more time finding things to do with my Amiga.

One of my favourite was producing the 18 Plus Yorkshire Area Newsletter "Tyke" which I did for five years. I also produced many posters and leaflets.

My favourite passtime at the moment is creating and updating my web site, (I hope you like it, and find it useful and entertaining).

Recently I have found that I am using my "PC" more and more for editing and updating my Web Site.

I now use my Amiga mainly for E-mail and image scanning, my iMac has no paralel port to connect the scanner to and I have been unable to get my "PC" to "talk" to the scanner as idoes not have a bi-directional paralel port. (A more advanced computer than the Amiga?).


I am very interested in the possibility of doing non-linear video editing, and it looks like this facility will not be available on the Amiga soon, if everm therefore I have purchased a new Apple Macintosh iMac DVSE system which has this facility as standard.

I read in the Amiga Press that the Amiga MCC, supposedly due for release in 1999, would have had a Firewire interface, (I don't know if this would have meant that like the Apple, it would be capable of video editing), but I was too strongly tempted to get the Apple iMac as it was available. I would have prefered to get a new Amiga, but it wasn't available.

I have now installed my A1200 into a Tower System, or rather purchased a pre-installed system. One of the improvements that I strongly wished for was more colours, to see my internet pages in all their glory!

My next project is probably going to be the setting up of a Network for my three computer systems.
