     Last night the pre-order list opened for the Ultimate64, and I ordered one.  http://www.ultimate64.com  The order was taken, and I don't have to pay until it is ready to ship.  It came to just under $218 US.

     Ah, I just received a production update today.  It seems that the one I ordered will be ready in early October.

          Not in time for CommVEx,

     Heh, it wasn't ready in October, but I received notice that it was ready a few days ago.  I sent in my money, and it has been shipped!  I should have it in a few days.

          Back in California,

     The Ultimate 64 arrived on Dec. 27, and I plan to show it at the SCCAN and FCUG (and maybe TOGA) meetings in January.

     At the FCUG meeting, the U64 was tested with a Koalapad and its Koalapainter cartridge.  The U64 failed!  It understood when the stylus was pressed against the tablet, but it would not move the cursor lower than midpoint down the screen.  Sad  More testing to be done...
     With the board fitted into a brown C64 case, I don't like that it's only supported by 3 screws.  Therefore, I have taken member Bogdan's advice and have ordered 3-D printed brackets which will firmly hold onto the U64.  I got them from CoreI64, specifically on this page -
