Dear Fellow Ultraliters:

Just a word about NEC - I'm surprised by bthe lack of appreciation being
shown on thislist. Here's a machine many years out of production, bought
byt many of us at steep discount from mail order houses specializing in
remainders and discontinued models. And NEC - voluntarily - recalls this
the batteries in the old model, replaces the bad batteries and offers a
cash payment to boot! and all we can do is think up clever ways to bilk them.

Really! How about recognizing NEC's responsible attitude toward customers,
such as its willingness to support out-of-production machines (and
out-of-warranty); willingness to seek out potential recipienytts, and
generous treatment of customers.

We really should find a way to reward this good behavior, and not try to
find clever ways around their minimal restrictions.

Or do we subscribe to the cracker ethic: it's always the victim's fault if
they don't assume everyone else is a crook?

With love
