1st place and Grand Prize winner of the recent "Tim Byars Purchases Pager"
went to Alex Grossman of Micronet Technology, who
actually picked up the phone and paged me.

His reply along with a page;

* Tim,
* You are one sick dude.... With WAY too much time on your hands...
* But, I gotta admit it had me rolling.
* I take exception to:
* After all who are his friends? Rock stars, porno girls, and geeks.
* See Ya,
* Alex


1st place in the clever reply category goes to Chuck Holland with;

* What a SICK PUPPY you are......folded on another one of your pet peeves, I
* thought you said that pocket pagers led to male sterility...?????......Are
* you wading in the shallow end of the gene pool again...???....B^)......Chuck

A very close second goes to Jack Putman

* Awesome press release. So. It's just an april fools joke isn't it. Besides,
* if you got a pager it would just be for the vibrating action, right? Then all
* your friends can call you "for a good time", right? So will you now become
* "pageboy", and start hanging out with playboy bunnies, huh?

And third place goes to Tommy Lee with;

* T
