Hello from Gregg C Levine obviously with Jedi Knight Computers
And I am inclined to agree with the suggestion of how to play at being a
member of the fraternity from Animal House. The idea behind how to
market something that way is peculiar. Take this one as an example the
USB based adapter that Stan Bischoff is writing about in a message that
came out today. I found out about in the Readme messages attached to the
current series of drivers. That was in March. I called the TMO number on
the back of my CD case. The fellow at the other end first wanted to deny
its existence, then finally said it existed. Now when I contacted
Agilent regarding another card that VEE supports, GPIO card in fact, the
fellow at the other end suggested looking in other directions. The USB
adapter, plus any crowd of peripherals that was available from the demo
room were suggested. There must be a special place reserved in the Spice
Mines of Kessel for people like that........ Now can we stop beating
this issue over the head with gaffe sticks and with force pikes, and
move on to discussing  the usual things for this list? Sorry folks about
those lines, sometimes the peculiar way marketing moves makes me reach
into the vernacular gleaned form my Star Wars hobby. Nevermind the
company name of course.
