Hello, Kris,

I did not say:  "I do not have a DVD drive." All I said is what is said in my 
other e-mail, so go read them for yourself!  I am not being negative.  It is a 
solid fact!  You, Kris, will understand why later.  The truth is that more and 
more people have DVDs, yes.  Again, you will find out for yourself later.  Yes, 
I do have a DVD drive here!

Thank you.
