DEFENSE version 2.2 (README file)

Thank you for giving DEFENSE a tryout. DEFENSE is a shareware
program. That means that you can try it without paying too much
money for it. If you decide to use it, you are expected to
register the program with the author and pay him for it. The
price is $45. Is that a bargain or what? In return, you will get
such good things as telephone help if you need it and
notification of updates. It works on the honor system. Let me
re-phrase that. It is supposed to work on the honor system.
WHAT MEANS EVEN MORE TO ME THAN MONEY - if you can believe that -
is knowing how many people are playing the game. If the fact
that I have spent some ten years slaving over this game on a sick
old IBM PC with 256K of RAM while putting four kids through
expensive colleges, have a wife who needs an operation, oh yes,
and flew some 70 combat missions in the Korean war doesn't move
you to pay the measly $45 fee, then I ask you at least to drop me
a line to tell me that you are using the program. That's all I
ask. It will cost you a stamp. I'd offer to pay for it but I
assume you will be wanting to use a phony name and address.
Letting me know that you are using the game is my first priority.
I have to be honest with you and admit that money is next.
Thirdly, I would like to see your comments on the game although
I'm not sure I want to hear from you if you DON'T like it. If
you do like it, please make copies and give them to your friends.
