I'm interested to hear about this book as well. I've actually crossed
paths with the author (he's from Winnipeg too). I traded him a non-
working SuperPET for a C128 with 1571 drive (which currently sits
neglected on a shelf - so many systems, so little time...). Amigas are
fun though; my A1200 has the honour of an active spot on my desk for
both nostalgia reasons (I grew up with an A500) and because my kids like
it (they're huge fans of Lemmings).
