As I'm pressed for time, I'll try to make this short; hope you don't

1. Welcome to the Poqet family!
2. There was one person who started an after-work business selling new
surplus GRiD labeled Fujistu's (as I recall) SRAM cards dirt cheap. They
were not advertised as being (or not being) Poqet compatible but I've
not (yet?) noticed any problems. (Well maybe just one; I have one card
which I can't seem to Stack(er) in the Poqet but which, when Stack'ed
elsewhere, works fine in the Poqet. Go figure?!?) I should also point
out that s/he seemed quite honest too; actually sent what you ordered,
did so promptly, didn't try to make an extra profit by hiking up the
shipping costs. I've *no* idea if he is still in business-- at his
prices/service I can't help but think he must have exhausted his supply
of cards by now-- but if you want to try to contact him, here's a
newsgroup posting (courtesy of Dejanews) regarding him:

P.S. If anyone learns anything about Reboot, perhaps you'll let me/us
know? Thanks!
