Anyone remember this?

Steven Youell back in 2004 I think put out a CD that had his Buffing the Deck technique, a a new key card and a few effects. "Buffing the Deck" I have and is readily available but Scruffy, the key card, appears lost in the past.

Mr. Youell is hard to find these days and Scruffy is just not available, at least I haven't been able to find it.

Anyone know about this?

Pretty sure I have the CD, might be a little bit finding it.
