Ah, that brings back memories. I remember when people wouldn't pay
$20 for a Mox Pearl... When nobody would buy the Alpha set one guy

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
