Well, I started using "-Z-" because no one but you could remember how to spell
"Dafydd" -- and you can always go to my Web site to look up the correct
spelling. (^_^)

Actually, the "Turn-M" thing could be fun, but only if you turn it 90 degrees
instead of 180 and make it a sigma:


If anyone goes with -X-, how will we know if it represents Gundam X or Turn-X

I was under the impression that the Granada Treaty ratified and affirmed the
terms of the Antarctic Treaty, then extended it by recognizing the Zeon Republic
and adding such things as the Minovsky particle ban. Weren't solar weapons also
banned or at least restricted, such that the Colony Laser was also a violation?
How about the Solar System II?

Weren't those mines that Ma Kube launched in Texas colony also nukes?
