dunno whether it's impolite or correct to address to the list with this
Some weeks ago my old computer said Goodbye, now I'm building up a new one
(Kill Bill, have you ever tried to import an address-book from an old
Outlook Express version to a new full version of Outlook? Nearly impossible,
what for brain-dead programmers must have been at work).
I lost some informations about the marked preferences of "my" collectors
(and I think some addresses too),
Can't remember all, are many hundreds.
As you know, I like rather to distribute my most special pieces and offers
directly to those collectors, in whose focus the locality or type is
than to use ebay (and my homepage, until I'll have renewed it, to keep it
updated, who knows, when this will be).
So if you like, please give me a note with your preferences, of course I
keep them strictly confidential, if you like to continue to receive my
Some collect geographically, some historically, some systematically, some
only a few types, some only desert, some only endcuts, some everything, some
prefer large specimens, some micromounts and so on.
Of course those, with whom I hadn't the pleasure yet, but who want to be in
my address book too, are cordially invited to do the same.
Sorry for this somewhat selfish post, but everyone, who once lost his data,
knows what for chaos the loss creates and to reconstruct them, in trying to
email each collector in person, would take some months and finally perhaps
it may be profitable for you, at least I had no single complaint about my
pieces I sold and swapped during the last 5 years.
Many thanks & Buckleboo,
