If no look up was being sought why then do you post any message asking for
SKS help me with the NBI and then request an answer off list
Really puzzling Are these attempts to get the answers and conceal from
I have the NBI and it really annoys me to having paid good money others are
trying to circumvent buying the discs
Considering most of us are in the UK are made to pay considerable sums ( my
experience is that libraries in the US offer research facilities equal to
none and probably free) for discs and obtaining information
