No kidding, Lee!!!  You plugged in a PVR250, powered on the machine, and it
worked?   Wow!

I may be just a bit skeptical, so taking a page from the US Patent Office
when they receive an application for a perpetual-motion machine, may I ask
you for some supporting documentation on how you did it?

Oh.  The Patent Office usually responds to perpetual-motion machine
applications with the a big red-ink stamp: "PLEASE SUBMIT WORKING MODEL".
