"I wish there was a ~$60ish CF card or SD card board for the IIGS!"

$100 cash may get you a MicroDrive/Turbo for the IIgs if you ask really
nicely. :-)  Let me know off list and I could bring one.

You could however piece together an older CFFA or MicroDrive for about $60
in parts.  You would need a proto PCB for a backbone, but the rest is
pretty standard parts.  I also have a broken CFFA is you want a fun project
repairing it.
