Perhaps. I'm looking forward to whatever Tony has to say.

You already gave me that incentive about three times, and both of those
ideas were FAR easier. Well, building a replica of Zuse's Z-3 may not be

Marchant is MUCH easier. So why should I bother doing the difficult stuff,
if the reward is the same? :)
