Assuming you're going to supply me with all the pertinent information
needed to do so, you're on. Remember, dude, I'm a "starving artist" stuck
with a IIci, not somebody with the $$ to run right out and grab a flock of
those 9600 MPs you're coding for. I'm curious... How many of those are
_realistically_ expected to participate, anyway? Not a slam, just an "I
wonder" based on the fact that I keep hearing the same thing from all
directions: "I ordered my 9600 MP the other day. They tell me it's going to
be at least 8 weeks on backorder"

For the third time (Second if you only count publically visible offers) I
make the offer to meet halfway. Will it amount to anything this time?

Watching my mailbox...

So release this one, and if/when I get the stubs put together, release one
that addresses the 68K's problems. +------------------------------+
