Ah, right, OK. Sorry.

That was part of a question, not my list of aims. I asked "what are 
the aims of the AFFS stand? Are we: <list of some options>?"
Don't feel you have to * stuff on my account, by the way. Does anyone 
here object to occasional strong language?

If you missed it, it was in an email with dateline "Wed, 08 Sep 2023 
01:40:44 +0100". I think everyone else will be trying to flog and demo 
stuff, so AFFS could do well from being a refuge from salesmen. 
Interesting that we're so far apart on this. Do you know how much was 
sold at the Oct 2003 show, or should we ask Nick Hill?

Of course, I agree with that, but affs-project hasn't really got going 
yet and it would be good to have many eyeballs on these discussions. 
If nothing else, there are some there who LART people gently when they 
step out of line. ;-)

You have my sympathy. Annoying, innit?
