Sir Anthony,

I don't believe that Sir Cliff was undermining your post -- for you posted
no actual prices. All you stated was: "at what looks like an interesting

An interesting price to me is $5.00. An interesting price to another could
be $500.00. Frankly, I wouldn't pay either price right now due to lack of
spare time to actually build the kit (which is what I would do -- I *like*
trying to burn my fingers with a soldering iron (thank goodness I'm
horrible at it - the burning, that is ;-)).

I believe Cliff was just mentioning the URL just in case the Sinclair kit
that you mentioned was already gone -- there may be a source for more so
that others could enjoy them to. [Of course, I'm an optimist...]

Anyway, that's my take on this situation -- now back to the rest of my
(short) 12-hour shift.

See ya, and chin up, eh?
