Yup. Exactly. I'm going to buy everything I see with Kats on it just to
send a clear message to Teddy Bear that he fouled up large. The toys
were approved because no one cared at that point in time; end of story.

I found the SNES/Hudson Soft game in Vancouver (well, Surrey actually)
"Toys 'R' Us" for 74.99 Canadian (about what, 2.50 American?). They'd
evidently sold rather a few, so _someone_ out there is watching!

Other news: I have B&W scanning facilities now, so I'll do some stuff and
send it to rat for the FTP site. I'll soon have SLIP as well so I can
finally check out the Web Page and the TCN site. (So, the twentieth
century arrived a bit late here - sue me).

Anyone working on fanfic? E-me.
