P.S. I am currently incarcerated, so my funds are extremely limited. However, I eagerly expect to be released in 2006, if not before then. I want to make the electronic processing business my career. So, if you or anyone that you know can supply me with reading material or cassettes that will enhance my potential success, please notify me.
