    Apart from the fact that this would've required a time machine, the suggestion was by Heinz Wrobel, not by Dave or Andy.


    Heinz Wrobel...hmmm, probably could have gotten that from the document, eh, Andreas?
    No I was merely suggesting that Dave and Andy might take the suggestion seriously.

    And yes, this would have predated MorphOS.

    Still, this story does shed some light on Dave's negative reaction to us.
