    Don't live there, but yes there is a city named Boulder in Colorado. I'll be travelling just south of it in on my way to Rifle, CO, yes a town named Rifle in Colorado in just over a month. There is also a trail/road in Colorado called Oh My God Road;)

    No Joe (flyboyJ) does live in Colorodo, but I believe it is Colorado Springs. I don't know how far that is from Boulder though.

    Heh....sounds like the road that goes up to that observatory up at 14,400 feet. Oxygen deprivation, anyone?

    Hi Joe
    that sounds close, if you were further away, I wasn't going to ask.
    I'm trying to buy some kit from a company in Boulder but they're not answering eMails. This is more like a bulletin board system where you get a box for your name, a box for your eMail address and a box for your text rather than the more sophistated layout so either

    they're not getting it
    they're getting it and not reading it
    they're reading it and can't be bothered

    I was hoping someone who was a short-distance (cheap) phone call away could ring them and let them know I'm interested in their products, would they mind talking to me. I contacted them back end of last week, this week is still young so they might just have a queue to work through before they get to me.

    If it gets to it, could you pass on some details and see if we can get these guys talking?

    Hi Joe
    still no word, if you're still up for it, they're at:-

    Colorado Electronic Product Design
    2845 Wilderness Place
    Suite 201
    Boulder
    Colorado 80301
    (303) 415-1112

    address included in case the phone number's messed up for any reason
    I've PM'd my other eMail address to you, if you could pass it on, I'm interested in talking to them about their Altera FPGA product line, I've mailed them a couple of times, no answer.
    Thanks
    Colin
