First I have to say that I am also happy that Bernie Hutchkins has 
I did express this in a letter to him, and I am also willing to pay him for 
PCC, if he insists, although this means that I will pay for it twice. (The 
copy shop
did not copy it for free! I think I have payed at least as much as if I 
could (!)
have bought it from Bernie Hutchkins !!)
So, again, I am really happy, and willing to pay for the PCC a second time,
BUT I still believe that what we have done was the only thing we could.

Well, in my case it *is* first hand. I sent a letter (not just a FAX or 
email ...),
asking for an offer for several parts of EN, and was never ever answered.
Can't speak for others - this is *my* first-hand experience.

No, we wouldn't do this, would we? Anyway, I laughed a lot! I hope Bernie
Hutchkins can also laugh with us now. As others said, we owe him a lot
for the great work he has done in the past.
