Part III - Narrative

State below in reasonable detail the reason why the Form 10-K, 11-K, 28-F or
10-Q or portion thereof, could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

          The Form 10-Q could not be filed  within the  prescribed  time  period
          because of recent events requiring disclosure on the 10-Q. Such delays
          could not be eliminated by the Registrant without  unreasonable effort
          or expense. The form 10-Q will be filed as soon as practicable, but in
          no event later than the fifth  business day following  the  prescribed
          due date.

Part IV - Other Information

(1)      Name and telephone number of  person  to  contact  in  regard  to  this

         Jeffrey D. Wilson                   415                    672-3137
         (Name)                          (Area Code)          (Telephone Number)

(2)      Have all other periodic  reports  required under Section 13 or 15(d) of
         the  Securities  Exchange  Act of 1934 or Section 30 of the  Investment
         Company Act of 1940 during the  preceding 12 months or for such shorter
         period that the  registrant  was required to file such  report(s)  been
         filed? If the answer is no, identify  report(s).  [X] Yes [ ] No

(3)      Is it anticipated that any significant  change in results of operations
         from  the  corresponding  period  for  the  last  fiscal  year  will be
         reflected  by the  earnings  statements  to be  included in the subject
         report or portion thereof? [X] Yes [ ] No

If so, attach an explanation of the  anticipated  change,  both  narratively and
quantitatively, and, if appropriate, state the reasons why a reasonable estimate
of the results cannot be made.

Revenue  recorded for the three  months ended March 31, 2001 was $31,323  versus
75,012 in 2000. The revenue decline was due to curtailment of sales, support and
product marketing activity occurring in November 2000.

Costs  and  expenses   during  the  three  months  ended  March  31,  2001  were
approximately $2,400,000 as compared to $3,812,907 during the three months ended
March 31, 2000. The  approximate  $1,400,000  decrease was primarily a result of
staff reductions in all departments and in sales, marketing, product support and
product development in particular.

General and administrative expense increased by approximately  $1,000,000 due to
severance  costs,  fixed  asset  disposition   losses  and  write-downs,   lease
termination costs as well as the cost of continuing  efforts to obtain strategic
alliances or dispose of our technology.

Due to the  relocation of the Company's  headquarters  and reductions in finance
and legal  staff and  budget,  additional  time is  needed  before a  reasonable
estimate can be made.
