I simply made a sugestion that Martin look into a
website...I felt that it would be a good way to showcase his
work, avoid sending out sheaf after sheaf of catalogue pages
and so forth...if he choses to ignore it, fine. I don't have
a problem with it.
However, having said that, it would be very convienent for
me to check out what he's currently producing, may produce
in the future, or has out of production by simply clicking
on an icon or two. He can always farm out the webwork...I
feel it might even lead to increased sales...and we all know
where that slippery slope leads to!

Having ordered from both parties, I can provide a very
slanted answer to
that, at least in the case of ordering from Martin
Loftin. Because you

months is just
too long a wait for any mail order, in spite of what the
That hasn't stopped me from acquiring Sunshine Model
Martin goes to enough shows that usually somebody I know
can get me
almost anything I may want.
OTOH, except when he's away at a meeting, Al rarely takes
more than 7-10
days to get an order back to me.
But I don't understand why anyone here should be imposing
on the way someone like Martin does business. I frankly
don't blame him
for wanting to stay off the web. I sometimes regret just
getting on an
email list like this one when there's 30-40 messages to
read each day and
I've got a set of X-23 patterns crying out to me to

but if someone
like Al enjoys playing with computers, and he certainly
does, more power
to him. Also more megahertz and gigabytes, too. But who
the heck are we
to demand that Martin Loftin get an internet site so that
we won't be
inconvenienced by needing to pick up a phone and actually
place a call to
a real live person.
