OULU, FINLAND - October 27th, 2014 - Finnish Amiga Users Group recently received offers for two separate Amiga 4000 computer donations, for giving onwards to worthy Amiga causes. We are very grateful for these generous offers and have coordinated them to the best of our abilities. The machines and donations themselves have been handled by private people. We are now happy to announce that the first one of the Amiga 4000 donations is on its way to the recipient, Igor "Majsta" Majstorovic in Bosnia. Igor has worked tirelessly and selflessly on Field-Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) accelerator cards to bring a modern solution to speeding up our old Amigas, and we hope this donation we facilitated helps him in that work. The donation also includes Amiga 4000 accelerator board connectors, plentiful accessories and some Amiga mementos as well.

UPDATE: November 21, 2014
Received two huge packages. I will write about the things I received in new article after I solve few problems with monitor. He is heavily damaged, cathode tube was moved from its place, most of the wires inside are disconnected, lot of bended pins. It is sad because monitor looks from the inside and outside just like he has left the factory just now. I was repairing it all day and made some progress, got to the menu screen but still he is not working. In the tiny space inside monitor case I left lot of my blood, nasty fingers cuts... Destroyed my hands totally, but hey, it can't get any better than to mix my blood with Amiga devices :)
