Following up on the nostalgia from the 38th anniversary of the first Amiga, I happened upon an article on lobste.rs about hacking Little Computer People on the Amiga - it has a link to a disk image, so I thought I'd try it.
sudo apt install fs-uae and some searching for an old
Kickstart ROM later, suddenly my laptop started sounding like an old
Amiga 500 - click, click, click, screetch, screeetch.
My Little Computer Person is called Orville and is happily nattering away in the background now, accompanied by a grey dog.
And the nostalgic sound of the floppy drive torturing the floppy comes on once in a while, when the game saves its state. Oh dear.
