Not sure where alienkidmj12 lives, but I got mine in less than a week it seems! Still wondering if I should order a second Lightning for my Mega STe I probably will, but money is a bit tight at the moment.

It works great in the TT030!

I would be interested in the Lightning but as far as I can tell it doesn't fit with the Atari FastRAM board in place. Oh well. It's a pity I missed out on the Storm as I've just acquired a couple of 32MB EDO sticks from a friend.

I just took my Atari FastRAM card out of the box and looked, that thing is hige compared to the Storm.

I would recommend ordering both the Storm and Lightning. Pretty sure they are still making the Thunder/Storm, right?

No, they had the last batch last year so as to concentrate upon the Lightning.

This is not true. If enough people order via thunderstorm (at) tuxie (dot) de, new Storm and Thunder will be made -- as soon as Matthias has time.

I just learned from Matthias that he's now busy producing a new batch of Storm fast-RAM cards. Your chance to order one?
