Long time no update, just a quick post about CommVEx:

This was my first time at CommVEx. Lots of cool stuff to see, and I even won 2 raffles! I got a 1581 drive and a batch of Amiga Software (Lemmings, Killer Cloud, Cyber Empire and Quarterback); Here are a few pics that I took:

Jim Drew showed off a couple of really cool devices, Super Card Pro, which is a TINY 1541 micro SD reader, and FPGA Arcade, both of which were really cool. You can check them out at his site cbmstuff.com
