Yeow! I thought Andromeda was a defunct company! Years ago I had heard of
them, seen advertising and magazine articles, etc. But they're still going!
 They have several Q-bus items and card cages. And they *still* have the
(U)DC11 in their catalog!

That's my type of company. Like me, they are still working at the Trailing
Edge of Technology. :-) Cool!

Thanks for the wake up, Tim.
Regards, Chris
