Hi, blindbo:

Thanks, both to you and other contributors to this discussion. As a devotee of Adam Smith and an active participant in capitalism, I find discussions of supply and demand fascinating. Throw in another fave (Magic) and you've got an irresistible mix.

I can sorta do a double l***, make a coin vanish, and on good nights weave smoke into silk. But how a printer can turn black, white, yellow, red, and blue inks into every conceivable colour is a kind of Magic beyond my comprehension.

I puttered around a print shop when I was 6 years old and it still fascinates me! Digital technology started a new age in the industry that put a spark back in my plug and its more fun than ever, now.

Oh, We actually do it with only 4: cyan, magenta, yellow, and black (blue, red, yellow, black).

Hi guys

This thread is really interesting. I would draw parallels with other domains where limited supply is also the case : SONY Playstations upon launch, and rock concert seats.

There have been many of you who have contacted me about my business. Unfortunately, pm's disappear *like magic* after a period of inactivity and I have lost the messages. Please, if you are still interested/wanting information pm again and I will save it off this time.

I have resigned my position as Director of Operations having my bid for the company rejected. I have successfully partnered with a new company and our capabilities have expanded to the bleeding edge of my trade. Some things work out for the best!

Misdierctions is my local shop and I have scored many oop books.

Right now Joe does not have Strong Magic or Cardshark, although I got my copies from the store some months ago.
