I didn't mention, this is not the first time there's been a bit of strange spam floating about. Mena Trott, Cam Barrett and others have previously received spam looking for someone with experience and equipment for time travel. http://www.dollarshort.org/archives/000580.shtml http://www.camworld.com/misc/spam/time_traveler.txt http://www.google.com/search?q=time%20traveler%20spam Some of the wording in this spam indicates that it might be the same person sending this spam. I can't decide if the sender is a nutcase or simly perpetrating a hoax. My spam was also received by others... http://www.cdharris.net/archives/2003_07.html#002477 http://www.feedster.com/search.php?hl=en&ie=UTF-8&q=dimensional+warp&btnG=Search&sort=date

Ok- kind of in the flavor of a miracle ponzi- scheme e-mail. As the author is writing from Speigle.de - germany's answer to aol-time-warner.com... allow a little for linguistic shift. 1. The mind warper generation 4 Dimensional Warp Generator # 52 4350a series wrist watch with z80 or better memory adapter. The z80 was a main processor chip manufactured by Zilog back in the 80's- think of it as the ancestor of the Apple 68020 or the pentium. If in stock the AMD Dimensional Warp Generator module containing the GRC79 induction AMD is another chip manufacturer- main competitor is Intel. Dimensional warp generator- kinda star trek funny.

I immediately forwarded mine to all the people I know and love who build sapce ships in backyards and basements. I once knew a guy who thought he was from the planet Argon. He made masks of the inhabitants and detailed schematics of the spacecraft in order to convince the rest of us. He thought his psycologist had ended their therapy, but kept appointments with him because he was so "fascinating."

I don't see what the big problem is here. Everybody knows that amazon.galaxy sells this stuff (or at least will start trading in about 40 years). In the meantime, there is a limited catalogue of stuff available that's considered safe for use by races for whom this science is in its infancy (ie the people of earth - at this present time) to help them get a foothold on the basic technology. If anyone wants a current catalogue, mail me at icdcomponents@hotmail.com and i'll forward you the catalogue by return.
