 As an offender of mailing list protocol (mechanical calculators) in
an intemporate rant re the sale online of Curta T-shirts (is that
vague enough :^) ) I can only plead that YES you are needed in this
list for your expertise as well as humor and good looks. Of course
the offending poster was our man Sam ,but what would collecting be
with-out passionate opinions. Christ-like self immolation is
egotistical and boring. Carry on Tim. You're great !!

 A fellow member of that most-desired citizenry., CANADIAN ( we even
make a beer by that name )

Wow Talk about an expandable thread. Like an accident will fill a
deserted street.
