Collectors List

Interesting take on history. Out of the original T3C, Colan and I still
interact while you have started spats with both of us. As for my using the
T3C site for my own purposes, I'm mystified as to why you recently forwarded
an offer of a donation to me. It wasn't a Hyperion, mind you, but, as you
say, I have enough of them anyway.

You're entitled to your own opinion, of course. Don't really see how listing
names of collectors all over the world is going to benefit me but maybe if I
squint my eyes and look through a glass of cheap wine, I might see what you

You can flame away, Larry. This is it for me on this topic. Cheers!
