All you guys did was add money to what I built. You are selling because of
the peering that I set up. Sure you expanded on that a lot, but I am the
guy who got NetRail transit free.

Well happy endings are when I get paid for my company. What 360 wants what
I built, not what you guys did after I left.

Nathan E and Keith are great guys, I am the guy who hired them and get
them into this business.

P.S. Nathan E and Keith, I do hope you get your Porsches, you guys have
come a very very long way in 5 years. I wish I made some money from
NetRail, but I was albe to buy my Porsche and house without NetRail and
would love to race someday in Atlanta. I may not win in my Boxster S, but
my new 911 GT3 will blow you away. :-)
