Well, gee, that says a lot. Did you mean you wanted the first one off the
assembly line? Or the first prototype itself? Simply saying you want the
very first particular make of a computer is not very concise. I could say
I wanted the very first Apple ][ but that could mean anything from the
original 4K model with manual start ROMs or the later 48K version upgraded
with the autostart ROMs. In this case, it is your fault for not precisely
stating what you wanted. Cord can't read your mind.

Look, if this did happen, the best you can do is simply post a SINGLE
message stating your case and LEAVE IT AT THAT. Don't expect everyone to
be all up and arms and indignant over it for you. There's no point in
staging a mock trial over it. Let both sides tell their story and then if
you have any further dispute, take it to e-mail. We don't really care.
We're intelligent enough to make our own decisions about the allegations
and the rebuttal.

Yes, it is and has always been a private matter. Thanks for informing us
of a possible danger. Duely noted. Now please deal with it in private
where it belongs.
