Subject: ACC gives up on TCAP!

I had been watching the on-going investigation by the American
Computer Company (ACC) into the government's UFO cover-up with
some interest.  For almost a year now they have claimed they have
been developing a revolutionary new computer device called the
Transfer Capacitor (TCAP) based on notes on devices recovered
from the Roswell saucer crash. This device was to effectively be
equivalent to a 90 Gigabyte hard drive with RAM access speeds and
no moving parts.

Then even went so far as to say that they had completed R&D and
were applying for a US patent.

Then on July 4 they made an announcement that effectively
destroyed any belief I had in their credibility:  they were
withdrawing their patent application on the grounds that they
"discovered" that their development of the TCAP was a violation
of the United Nations Outer Space Treaty of 1967, you know the
one that forbids weapons in space and stuff.  Here is a version
of the treaty on their site:


When asked why on their BBS this was their reply:


Posted by Andrew Grissom on Monday, 6 July 1998, at 8:05 a.m., in
response to patent withdrawal, posted by Jean Marie Ivey on
Monday, 6 July 1998, at 8:02 a.m.

The release says why, until we resolve the issue of whether or
not the Shopkeeper's Notebook is Outer Space Property, then the
patents can not be applied for, as that would violate the Outer
Space Treaty.

The same thing would apply to any Outer Space Property in the
possession of the DoD which it has not shared with ALL THE PEOPLE

We will continue to research the TCAP technology and, perhaps, to
introduce new products based upon it.

Note the use of the word "perhaps".  It seems to me that after
months of battling with government agents and misinformation
agents, this is a completely ludicrous reason to voluntarily stop
production of a product that they have already (supposedly) spent
millions developing, that will result in billions of dollars in
profit for their company.  In fact in their own investigation,
they claim to have found many instances were the U.S government
has already violated this treaty repeatedly in much the same

The only reasable conclusion is that the whole thing was a hoax
from the very beginning (which most people seem to have decided
already anyway), and this is their best idea to try to sweep the
whole misguided idea under the rug.

ACC Jack Shulman Admits Using UFO's For Bait

On a local radio show in Atlantic City, NJ yesterday, ACC
President Jack Shulman admitted using UFO's, aliens,
alien-abductions, and the paranormal to increase sales for his
small NJ company.

In the interview, Mr. Shulman was asked why this worked. "Because
so many people are involved in this, we have an automatic
audience. They are going to listen to us, because if they don't,
they become part of the conspiracy" Mr. Shulman said he thanks
both the people involved in ufology, and the United State
government for promoting his company for him.

ACC began using this tactic nearly two years ago, when the began
"The Roswell Story." The brainchild of Shulman himself, compiled
of reports from all over the net, in books, and on TV. "People
believe there is something to it, and if we claim that we have
the secrets, they come. While they are there, they might buy a

Some of those deep in the study of UFO's say that this is
damaging to a cause that is devoted to finding the truth. Shulman
says in response, "..the 'UFO community' is nothing but a bunch
of crackpots and losers, with nothing better to do with their

After making contact with some prominant figures in ufology, we
learned that ACC has very little pull with those in the study of
UFO's and alien abductions. Most tell us that ACC buried
themselves. Shulman says, "...yes, but our sales are up!"
