Please pardon if what I'm about to say has been already said. My pc has 
been down since the 11th and hence I've been out of touch since the 
10th. BTW, Kevin Brown, due to several misattempts at rebuilding my 
email from backup, at short intervals of having my system briefly 
working agin but again soon crashing, I am missing the cryonet if there 
was one for the 12th and the 19th, if possible could therse be sent 
again? Thanks.

Do we know if they will be required to keep the lease? And if so can 
they sublet it to someone else without similar zoning problems and by 
doing so save something of their revenue? Could the lease be used for 
storage perhaps of cryopreserved individual's belongings? This may not 
be the best idea for a non owned and non remotely located building. I 
only throw it out as a means to spur ideation.

All collectibles will be valueless with the coming of replicative 
technology whether molecular engineering or otherwise. Already the 
diamond industry sweats the reality that new synthetics are 
indistinguishible from natural and only by means of the scruples, for 
the present, of their makers made with marks to indentify as synthetic. 
A good time to sell collectibles, all of them, would be the week before 
official announcement of replicative tech. How can one know when this is 
or be sure to be around and not suspended, let alone the fact one cannot 
liquidate at the drop of a hat especially some collectibles. Woe to the 
fine art museum industry.
