Because of CRYPTIC SEDUCTION's Cypherpunk connection, I thought it would be
appropriate to present you with a unique opportunity.

The adult film market has been flat for some period of time and I see no
signs of an upturn any time soon.  I'm tired of waiting for the right market
and so are some of my shareholders.  So we've decided to bring this chapter
to a close--even at a loss--rather than drag it on any longer.  So have
decided to sell off the movie and dissolve the company as soon as possible.

To that end, I am soliciting bids for the purchase of all the assets of
Desdaemona--the remaining rights, documentation and inventory of CRYPTIC
SEDUCTION.  To insure a quick sale, I am setting a deadline for bids of noon
PST, March 20, 2002.

I think it's only fair that Cypherpunks--the inspiration for CRYPTIC
SEDUCTION--should get a "bite at the apple."  Attached, is a Word document
you may use to bid on CRYPTIC SEDUCTION.  Who knows?  If you are the winning
bidder, you may end up owning CRYPTIC SEDUCTION for a fraction of the
$30,000 it cost to produce it.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone
(510-839-3441).  Remember, the deadline is noon, one week from today.

P.S.  If the list chokes on the Word attachment, here it is in text form.
