The damn thing is, I'm still not convinced it was intentionally a scam.
Has anyone been able to prove that screen shot isn't real?  Seems like
a very strange, elaborate scheme for what probably wasn't THAT much

Regardless, has anyone found any more info on this guy?  I'm trying a
couple more ideas for leads...

Hopefully someday Video Life will be available as a ROM, but until then
I don't mind this idea.  But I'd say maybe go with EnCore, since The Core
is still vapor, and Video Life, though not extant, is at least confirmed.
