		    In message entitled "Neural networks applications available?" on Feb  2, you write:

	    Yes, LUCID sell it now.

		    Does Symbolics still support this? I think it was done by a third party,
		    not Symbolics, and I'm not sure that Symbolics has been paying to have
		    it upgraded to later versions of Genera.

		I've seen Plexi used under 7.2 (or was it 8.0) on an MacIvory.  If Symbolics
		doesn't have anyway to contact the developers of Plexi, I probably can find

	    The licensing agreement between Symbolics and Plexi Inc terminated a good
	    while back.  Plexi from Genera 7.2 appears to still run o.k. in 8.1, but
	    its not supported and you are not going to get it from Symbolics.

	    If you're interested, you should contact Plexi Inc - somebody at Lucid
	    Inc or possibly Symbolics Inc should be able to give you the number. 

	This is nice to know since we are being charged for software maintenance
	on Plexi.

    For the record: Steve is a Canadian customer and pays for support to and
    receives support from our licensed Canadian distributor, a company that
    is independent of Symbolics.  Symbolics, Inc., has been careful not to
    bill for Plexi support for some time; if by some chance we've made a
    billing error, we would be happy to refund or credit the money. If
    you're having a problem with a licensed distributor, we will use our
    leverage to help you get a refund or credit from the distributor.

In retrospect I should have been more careful in the wording of my
message.  The message came out of frustration of not being told by our
Canadian distributor and was not well thought out.  I apologize if I
unintentionally mislead anybody.  Thanks for clearing up the situation,
