 PC-DITTO II SORTA SHIPPING:
 Avant-Garde of Florida has indeed begun shipping their new hardware IBM
 Emulator.  Although no dealers have the units yet, some early orderers
 have at last received their PC-DITTO II.  The good news ends there,
 though.  Almost all of the owners reporting to date have had problems.
 The new emulator is very large, and does not fit in some 1040/520
 computers... at least not with the keyboard installed!  If that weren't
 bad enough, many simply do not work, and many more were shipped without
 documentation or without the software required to activate the emulator.
 AG is still refusing to do phone support (or even take machine messages
 or talk to anyone at all) while they scamper to try to patch one crisis
 after another.  The long view still seems to favor AG and most users
 expect the problems to eventually be resolved.  But in the meantime, PC-
 SPEED, being imported from Germany by MICHTRON, is getting a lot of
 sales and supporters.
