I never said that you should tell them what the price should be. All I 
said was that I thought the price of one of the products you sold was 
too expensive, IMHO. That being said, I didn't know that you didn't 
control the price of the software you sold. I figured you purchased the 
rights (or what have you) and then set a price yourself. :)

I also commend you for saving a piece of CoCo history in the right manner.

The product may be top notch. I didn't question that, either. (Except 
for my religious comment about Vi vs. Emacs. ;) ) I personally cannot 
afford to spend $25.00 (+ s/h) on an editor for the CoCo. That's why one 
has to go to the public domain if there is nothing else available that's 

Anyway, I didn't mean to inflame with that remark. It was something that 
I noticed in the past, and I thought I'd just suggest (probably not 
correctly, mind you) a price change.
