More details on the CMD RAMLink which is in the raffle. It comes with power supply, photocopy of the instruction book, and copy of the RAMLink Utilities disk. It does not come with the external back-up battery (which can be bought at any good battery supply house).

Truly,

And the timing clip for certain C64's and C128's that need it.

The original, sealed battery that came with it was 6 volts at 6.5 amp/hrs.. The replacement I bought for the RL I have at home is rated at 7 amp/hrs..

It looks as if we'll have another 1581 disk drive in the raffle.

Not a prize but a gift for every CommVEx v11 attendee... Just like what he had done for CommVEx v10, Tim Waite is agreeable to 3-D printing more CommVEx poker chips! :) Look at http://www.dickestel.com/images/fcug390a.jpg to see the v10 chip. The v11 chip will be similar, possibly white and maybe even multi-colored.

How about Commodore blue against white?

Replacement lead-acid batteries for it are available from Weird Stuff warehouse in Sunnyvale, California. Price - $10.

Saw them when I visited Weird Stuff last Saturday,

In the past we've had the Jeri Ellsworth-C64 DTV United States postage stamp. This year a lucky soul will win a block of Commodore 128 U.S. postage stamp as a door prize.

Celebrating 30 years of the C128,

More swag for the CommVEx attendee! Each person will receive a disk with Hydrophilic's BASIC 7.80 for the Commodore 128, a BASIC which cures the original BASIC 7.0's faults.

I ordered them late. Hopefully, they will come just in time for CommVEx.

Having them delivered straight to Las Vegas,
