 Well thanks Dave. That's right generous of you. Of course
we wouldn't have too much use for you especially at those
prices. For the most part we have the original peripherals
and don't have need for emulators. On the other hand
should you have a customer with needs that you and your
team of engineers don't have an emulator for, I'm sure
that someone on the list will have the needed equipment
and who would be happy to help them at your rate, and
of course remit a 5% finders fee and another 5%
administration fee to you and your team of engineers.

 A lot of the larger companies do refer to their older
equipment as "legacy" but most of us simply refer
to it as "vintage" as in good old wines.

 Be sure to keep us in mind if you run across anything
that you and your team of engineers can't handle.
