Hi Group, I have been looking for reports from those who attended the
AMICA Convention. I saw an article on the Pumper Contest.
I am very interested in buying a Broadmoore PowerRoll unit and Wayne
Stahnke's Ampico CD-ROM. I would like to hear from anyone that saw
the PowerRoll unit perform at the convention.
My concern is that this is a "state of the art" unit. The person that
upgrades our student information system at work defines "state of the
art" as: "it means that all of the bugs haven't been worked out yet."
I would very much like to have a PowerRoll unit if the bugs have been
