Okay, folks. Another milestone. First, the SSAE's are pouring in
here and back out again. Some of you didn't quite get the idea of
having a stamp on the envelope, but I forgive you....

We have just had a pledge that took us to the $500,000 mark! That's a
nice round figure. Now I'll get to the media to see what interest we
can evoke.

I just mailed out a firm offer to the Quadro Corporation, who make a
glorified dowsing rod called the QRS 250G Detector. This thing (which
you'll see on the NBC Dateline show around the end of January) is
being offered -- and sold! -- to law enforcement agencies at just
under $1,000 to detect drugs, weapons and explosives at a distance.
I've tested it. It doesn't work at all, any more than any other
dowsing device. So, your pledges are being offered to Quadro if they
can make it work in a proper test.

Again, don't worry.

James Randi.
