I've nothing but praise for Mr Prelinger, he's saved my life. I've
been through complete hell trying to access educational/doc films in
the past year and not only do I find someone putting them on line for
free, but he's friendly, and when I wrote he immediately went out and
bought my CDs. I only dreamed that it would be so soon that people
would be putting useable stuff online so soon, and his website is the
most useful one that I've found in 4 years of web surfing.

Just the other side of the coin there.
