Subject: this is great

I think that this newsletter is a great idea. RCA ran out on us in 1984
while the Lazer Disc crowd cheered. Now DVD is doing the same to them.
Will we never learn?

Somebody in Mexico or Taiwan should start making the players again.

Allright, someone that agrees with me!!!! Keep the CED dead!!!.... If anyone
does bring it back I will be amazed..... However, I would like to start the
committee to bring back the Ford Edsel..... We could get all of the
information from Ford and and start mass producing the Ford Edsel....
Yah!!!! Who's with me on this??? Look, If we all pitch in $100.00 we can
bring back the Ford Edsel!!!!...... Okay, I'm just joking..... gosh.... 

Why doesn't someone try to revive mechanical television???? There's an
idea.... Better yet, we could start the committee to go back to 60 line
television instead of 525 lines!!!! Y'know, things were a lot better back in
those days.... Who needs HDTV????



-BTW - My Benji  CED is still playing fine with no lubricant on the disc
whatsoever..... I'll let the site know when this CED fails...... My test to
out if the lubricant is really necessary continues......  The disc has been
played at many different  times without lubricant for over 6 months

Telecom Technologies Incorporated is in search of an RCA Series 400 or
compatible series player for use in the National Capacitance Disc Library.

Any offers should be sent to with the words 'NCDL
Player Bid' in the subject line.
