    Archival tidbits

    Note: This is solely for archival purposes to replace items that had been left in a file when a car was stolen. This is not now considered a 'clue' of any sort.

    The Commerce Department levied a fine against a computer firm for violation of export regulations. The fine was $118,000 and this amount was circulated in a computer industry newsletter.

    Later an Administrative Law Judge reduced the fine to either ten or twenty thousand dollars.

    It is believed the newsletter circulated nationally and that the computer company involved was located in Brooklyn.

    Can anyone find the Industry Newsletter and can anyone locate the computer company? (Note: if you locate the company, please do not identify it by name: it might be deluged with reporters).

    It was not a computer company.

    The fine was reduced, but not to "either ten or twenty thousand dollars."

    The people being sued refused to pay the final fine amount, but did eventually settle on an amount they paid.

    The company is still in business.

    Would you check the DATES that are involved and make certain that the figure of 118,000 did indeed circulate amongst Colorado businessmen who ship electronic goods abroad prior to the date of the murder?

    Oh, so now it's a "grant"? What's next, a booby-prize?

    The search for dollar amounts can be turned into a game. I will bet you I can find references to $118,00 associated with Boulder and not associated with the Ramsey case.

    How about this one? Bonus points for the fact that it references a woman named Phillips, though the conspiracy theorists will have to go home empty-handed because her name is Julie.

    Phillips stated it would cost the district about $118,000 more in transportation to keep Burbank open than to keep Base Line open.

    Oh no, it's yet another Santa coincidence despite his being dead at the time!

    Nederland
    Authorize forming a district and then raising property taxes to pay to build and maintain a town library
    About $118,000 annually (based on 2003 figures)


    How about we look closer to home, in Boulder proper?

    As noted in the October 2 memo, the developer is providing $118,000 in internal subsidy to the 20 permanently affordable low income units in the project.

    (sarcasm on) Surely the following link must contain the killer's identity, daring to confess in plain sight. Look! The title has an S and a B and a T and a C in it! And contains a reference to technology! And provides a profile of the killer! (sarcasm off)

    Table 1 provides the descriptive statistics. Analyses suggest that the average inventor in this study was about 47 years old, had almost 20 years of formal education, and at the time of the survey invented more than 13 patents, and earned in excess of $118,000 annually.
