The below is very untrue.... again, I don't care. Enrico, if you would like me to
try to help you further, my offer is still open. It's just.... well, what can I
do. You have turned down all my offers to try to help the situation. And, I don't
have a sample of the first TRS-80 made.

Come on.... how much more of this do we all have to take?!?!!?
