I used to love my CED machine.  It enabled me to create a library of films at a
reasonable price.  RCA promised a good cross-section of classics and it lived up to
the classics.  However, the machines didn't work and the disks didn't work and the
technology was behind the times.  Nostalgia is a good thing but technology moves
on.  Now all of my 5 machines are broken and my 400 disks remain in the attic.  I
had hoped that this site would lead to fixing the machines so that I could look at
the old moview from time to time even though laserdisc and DVD's and new VHS
recordings probably look far better.  The site so far hasn't delivered this
information.  Also, the site hasn't really gotten a dialogue going.  At one point
we were hearing from predators.  At another point we were hearing from the
curious.  Now we don't seems to be hearing from anyone.  Is this site still
viable?  Is it performing any purpose?  Maybe what we need is a CED museum and a
guest book.  I write this with great sorow.

Subject: CED Magic Active Channel

Hello All:

In response to some requests, I've set up an Internet Explorer active channel
for CED Magic. This will only work for IE version 4.0 or later, and creates a
icon in the channel bar where the most popular CED items from the site can be
opened. Windows 95/98 users can also select an animated VideoDisc logo as their
screensaver. The link to subscribe to the channel is near the bottom of the main
CED Magic page in the Miscellaneous section.
