Alex is totally into doing this (custom stuff). He approache dme already about doing Allegro reproductions. But I think he's concerned who's gonna hold (pay for) the stock prior to eventual sale. I'm sure he doesn't wish to do this, but I don't know.

Alex loves getting letters from Earth - go ahead and write him. He's a great guy. He lives in most Nikon-picture-perfect corner of the planet but I think he gets a little lonely among all those beautiful green hills, chateau's and distant "Reeeee-cu-luh" chants in the background. He likes hearing from the U.S.
