WHEN he can get that damn Dream Color to actually WORK, maybe he'll either publish or present the results in the future.

You want to send me yours for evaluation for a week, or better, buy me one, no problem, I'll test it. But there's no way, based on my conversation with actual knowledgeable people who've paid for one there's any way I'm paying to play at this time!
