Good question, Jim. Those who have customers on file like I have for the
past 6 years or so could probably sit down and "guestimate" a figure. You
have to also consider those who don't purchase anything but send e-mails to
me asking for CoCo help.
There's Lots of lost CoCo users, or those who are not really a part of the
CoCo community as we know it (mailing list, web forums, etc.). People are
