I see a slight flaw in this quote. From what I understand even if we do send you money you aren't going to show us anything. So after giving away $20 we still don't know if it exists.

Since Bill has finally gotten around to revealing his main reason for posting here - to solicit money from EM members - I'm removing the links and closing the thread.

Anyone wishing to support his project can send him a PM if you wish, or track him down via the search engines.
