      Is payment via Paypal?

      We need to figure shipping, too. I'm also down for 5 copies.

        I note that Perdix (or one of his minions) has updated the Prototype X web site.

        Everyone should go take a look. http://prototypex.org.uk

        I thought the mutating Xs was an amusing device. It happened a bit slowly, though.

          990 X's disappearing at a rate of 99 X's per second?

          Count them.

              I really dig what you've done so far Etive.
              The cat spread its wings and flew high into the air, hovering to keep pace with them as they moved cautiously toward the city. Then, as they climbed over the rubble of what had once been a gateway and began to make their way through piles of weed-grown masonry, the cat flew to the squat building with the yellow dome upon its roof. It flew twice around the dome and then came back to settle on Jhary's shoulder. - The King of the Swords

                moving product....

                Tremendous work!

                I had missed that post, Berry. Cool!

                The Web site work is pure wonderful. Prototype X is definitely a class act. I can’t wait to see more.
                8)

                Right, which reminds me: classes are over for the week. Off to the phone....

                P.S. In my professional writing course, I conclude the term with a business or technical research project that the entire class collaborates on. This time around I’ve got my students working on the problems associated with new magazine start-up: production, distribution, and forming relationships with advertisers. For example, one question we will pursue is how does one list items at amazon.com? As the central focus of their project, the students are following the development of Prototype X. If anyone has suggestions about specific research that could or should be done, please share your ideas. Thanks!

                  Many thanks Berry!

                  The design is based on Perdix's own ideas and the X's are inspired by um... the 'Cross-stitch- Alphabet in' chapter of 'The Pictorial Guide to Modern Home Needlecraft' (circa 1930)

                  Cheers also Carter Kaplan!

                    It didn't happen that fast on my system, which is running Netscape 7.0 and Flash 6.0. It was very much slower. I'll verify it with Firefox.

                      I don't suppose any of them are French are they? If so, I might have to start combing my hair before logging on.

                      Sadly, due to the crapness of my browser set-up, I saw no Xs at all. I liked the rest of the page though! Very arresting.

                        Dee, if you have remaining artwork to be uploaded that your system dysfunction / malfunction is preventing, perhaps you need to take your illustrations (and perhaps your scanner) and visit someone on MWM with a decent system and Internet connection. I know you like to affect the image of "cosmic victim," but you've got friends here who can help. I'm a bit far for you to travel, but what about Perdix? Or Bob? Or steeltsar? Or any of several others.

                        If you're having difficulties, they may be solvable with a little planning and preparation. You've just got to ask.

                            The people who will hire you want to feel warm and fuzzy about you.

                              M-A_19,

                              You've got to understand that Dee's usual computer system is suffering through the throes of tertiary syphilis (all those X-rated web sites) and is thus malfunctioning to the point of being useless.

                              Consequently, he has been forced to login from the Difference Engine that his sister has apparently reconstructed from Babbage's original designs. Dee has a hard time finding compatible packages for the "other" DE. This is similar to the problems faced by Perdix at work when he surfs the net from the Differential Analyzer that his friend, Vannevar Bush, loaned him.

                              :lol:

                                We would like to thank Mr. Sizemore for that Transgressive Moment, brought to you under the offices of Moorcock's (Expletive Deleted) Miscellany.

                                We now return to our regular programming.
