Question asked by VRFuser on Feb 27, 2003
Scott,

Where can I obtain this new version of the Digitator software ?? I went to
your website (http://www.hopelessflop.com/lets-digitate.html) and all I get
is a "The page cannot be displayed" error.

I was really dying to get the new Digitator 1.1 Rev. Guess I will try again
later.

Thanks,

Jeff Davis
