I just invented a computerized cat fur brush.

Materials used:

1.8 GHz AMD Athlon processor
Cherry wood
Carnauba wax

The cat seems to like it. It's effective and and pretty fast - it operates at 1.8 GHz after all.

I think this will revolutionize the pet grooming industry.

What about Esperanto and that - what his name? - Ludwik Zamenhoff or something. Not much in use but still first effort in international language.

Philipdd altered the history, but Polish reference to enigma is true.

Enigma was a major problem for the alliance intelligence department; therefore they put a lot of effort to break Nazi’s coded messages. And that were the Polish code breakers who first deciphered Enigma coded messages, and designed a fully operational copy of the original enigma. What in the end shortened the WW2 itself.

British claim that they first deciphered enigma, but they never refer to Polish blueprints they got their hands on before deciphering anything – history can be altered so easily…

To not stay in this gloomy WW2 topic I’ll humbly inform You about more up-to-date Polish creation. Polish scientists had a great influence on the development of the blue laser, now commonly used in BluRay disc readers. Idea itself was Japanese, but it was the Polish scientists who improved the technology enough to allow the construction of efficient blue laser, and in the end The PS3 console :)

No, no, the Poles invented the Enigma and then cracked the code. We are very clever people.

the automatic change dispenser

Which I'm sure would get all moody, request the correct change and then spit the same change back at you.

Esperanto was developed in the late 1870s and early 1880s by Dr. Ludovic Lazarus Zamenhof, a Jewish ophthalmologist from Bialystok, at the time part of the Russian Empire.

Esperanto was a nice idea but turned out to be a pretty useless invention, didn't it.
I'd vote for gefilte fish.

Should have gone down the print on demand route! Not that PoD is particularly wonderful. I'll certainly never be getting into self-publishing.

But to try to be helpful: does he have a website? A halfway decent website would probably shift a fair few copies. There are also quite a few books about Esperanto on ebay, why not try listing ten copies there with a buy it now price of ten bucks? If they go well, you can up the price a bit. The only thing worse than books going unread is books going unread when you've paid for them!
