Re: OT $1.95 synth!

the wusik-people have constructed a strange scenario, here:

all the risk is given to their (potential) customers. with ZERO guarantee.
but every single dollar people send in is theirs to keep.
they will not give it back!
so whatever happens, wusik will make some dollars from idealistic people.

if they should not make the 150 000 margin, a very strange effect will set 
wusik will disappoint all their (potential) customers at once - for a 
2 dollars per customer.
marketingwise a disaster...
it would be wise to give out the prog to these people, anyway.
