This is partially true.  Although I am enthusiastic, but not to the point
of madness, and offer my opinion from time to time, I do *not* operate a
mechanical music business, nor do I sell, manufacture, repair, restore
player pianos, mechanical music instruments, pianos rolls, etc.  I merely
host a web site where *other* people can buy, sell or trade their mechanical
music instruments.  I do not charge advertisers for placing ads and I
receive no compensation for my work.  So, technically, I am not running
a business.

On the other hand, John Tuttle is operating a for-profit business, and he
does offer his "advice most generously!"  (Sorry John, but I know
from your MMD postings and private correspondence that you're not afraid
to express your opinion!) ;-)
