PowerRoll Performance at AMICA Convention
By Jack M. Conway

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
worked out.

 [ The student's definition is correct for complicated software;
 [ Microsoft will be working on the bugs in Windows 98 for quite
 [ a while!  (Gotta keep those programmers employed!)  It's much
 [ easier _finding_ the problems in hardware, but it often takes
 [ awhile before improvements get into production.  Prototypes of
 [ the PowerRoll are now being demonstrated, and Larry is working
 [ feverishly to correct problems which appear during these demon-
 [ strations.  So the reports from the AMICA showing will be very
 [ important: both Larry and his potential customers will know
 [ what's working well and what isn't.  I hope we hear from the
 [ convention attendees soon.  -- Robbie
