Re: VMs: Image Source, Accuracy of Transcriptions

Oh I know exactly what I'm doing. The best minds have floundered on this for
years. I have my reasons for sticking rigidly to EVA. Well not completely
rigidly I do have some reservations. Every so often I will drop some text
here and there on the list but no one will really know what I am doing and
that suits me fine. If I ever do make a breakthrough then everyone will
know, because I will only post anything truly significant when I know that I
am right.

Tunnel vision is easily aquired.
