Since I see that you are from my old Univeristy in Sweden I might also
give you a hint to the local bible in Sweden ELFA they do have
Max2,Cyclone, Cyclone2 and config memories from Altera in thier
catalog. Not the cheepest way but they take small quantiy orders and
you don't have to be a company to buy from them.
Hope this helps
Fredrik
