PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

On December 20, 2000, we expect to file a petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Minnesota to reorganize our debts under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

We settled our litigation with Cnet, Inc. in August 1999 in exchange for our issuance to Cnet of 2,000,000 shares of our Common Stock.

In September 2000 Lycos offered to settle their dispute with the Company for a $2,250,000 cash payment. In November 2000, Lycos filed suit in United States District Court, District of Massachusetts, to collect an amount to be established by trial up to the total remaining value of our contract. We estimate our total exposure at up to $13,375,000. Due to our financial position, we did not contest the suit. In December 2000, Lycos requested a default judgment against us. Based upon the September offer from Lycos to settle the dispute, we have provided for $2,250,000 for this claim in the financial statements as of and for the three and nine months ended October 31, 2000.

In July 2000, EZ Quest, Inc., a vendor of our dtpdirect.com operation, filed suit in Orange County Superior Court in Santa Ana, California to collect approximately $65,000 that EZ Quest claims is due from sales of products to us. In October 2000, EZ Quest obtained a default judgment for the total amount claimed. We believe that we have adequately provided for this judgment against us.

In September 2000, Mitsubishi Electric & Electronics USA, Inc. ("Mitsubishi") filed a claim with the American Arbitration Association in Orange County, California demanding payment of $227,000 plus late payment fees, arbitration costs and attorney's fees for products delivered to our GTI subsidiary in April, May and June 2000. We believe we have adequately provided for any amounts due as a result of this claim.

In September 2000, Perry Judds ("Judds") filed suit in Hennepin County District Court in Minneapolis, Minnesota to collect approximately $162,000 plus court costs and attorney's fees that Judds claims is due for publishing T2 Acquisition Corporation product catalogs. In November 2000, Judds obtained a default judgment for the total amount claimed. We believe that we have adequately provided for this judgment against us.

In September 2000, Hansol Multitech, Inc. ("Hansol") filed suit in Orange County Superior Court in Santa Ana, California to collect approximately $199,000 plus interest, court costs and attorney's fees that Hansol claims is due for supplying products to GTI Acquisition Corporation. We believe that we have adequately provided for any amounts due as a result of this claim.

In September 2000, Merisel Americas, Inc. ("Merisel") filed suit in Superior Court of California in Los Angeles, California to collect approximately $109,000 plus interest, court costs and attorney's fees that Merisel claims is due for supplying products to T2 Acquisition Corporation. Netdirect was also named in this suit. We believe that we have adequately provided for any amounts due as a result of this claim.

In September 2000, the debtor in possession of the assets of Microage, Inc. ("Microage") filed suit in the United States Bankruptcy Court in Phoenix, Arizona to collect approximately $102,000 plus interest, court costs and attorney's fees that Microage claims is due for supplying products to Netdirect and T2 Acquisition Corporation. We believe that we have adequately provided for any amounts due as a result of this claim.

In October 2000, Bill Dinges ("Dinges") filed suit in the Justice Court, West Tempe Precinct, Maricopa County, Arizona to collect approximately $2,500 that Dinges claims is due for publishing product brochures for GTI Acquisition Corporation. In November 2000, Dinges obtained a default judgment for the total amount claimed. We believe that we have adequately provided for this judgment against us.

In October 2000, Carmichael, Lynch, Spong ("Carmichael") filed suit in Hennepin County District Court in Minneapolis, Minnesota to collect approximately $79,000 that Carmichael claims is due for supplying public relations services to Netdirect. In December 2000, Carmichael obtained a default judgment for the total amount claimed. We believe that we have adequately provided for any amounts due as a result of this claim.

In October 2000, Merisel Americas, Inc. ("Merisel") filed suit in Superior Court of California in Los Angeles, California to collect approximately $40,000 plus interest, court costs and attorney's fees that Merisel claims is due for supplying products to Netdirect.

In November 2000, Ricoh Corporation ("Ricoh") filed suit in Hennepin County District Court in Minneapolis, Minnesota to collect approximately $105,000 that Ricoh claims is due for supplying products to GTI Acquisition Corporation.

In November 2000, Wynit ("Wynit") filed suit in Hennepin County District Court in Minneapolis, Minnesota to collect approximately $111,000 that Wynit claims is due for supplying products to T2 Acquisition Corporation. We believe that we have adequately provided for any amounts due as a result of this claim.

In December 2000, Iiyama North America, Inc. ("Iiyama") filed suit in Hennepin County District Court in Minneapolis, Minnesota to collect approximately $22,000 that Iiyama claims is due for supplying products to Netdirect. We believe that we have adequately provided for any amounts due as a result of this claim.

Because of our financial position, we have not contested any of the above claims, and all of them could result in default judgments for the amount of the claim.

In connection with our January 1999 acquisition of the operating assets of Herold Marketing Associates, Inc. dba Graphics Technologies, Inc. ("Herold"), we escrowed $200,000 of funds for possible future payment to Herold upon a post-closing purchase price reconciliation. Umax, Inc. asserted a claim against the escrowed funds based on a money judgment against Herold in a matter unrelated to us. Herold and we authorized the payment into court of $85,000 of the amount in escrow for determination by the court as to whether Umax may make a claim for those funds. The matter has not been resolved to date.

(b) None

(c) Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities.

(1) Issuance of shares with no cash consideration:

Between August 1 and October 31, 2000, we issued 2,000,000 shares to CNET, Inc. to settle our $500,000 litigation dispute. We believe the issuance of these shares was exempt under Sections 4(2) and 4(6) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

(d) None

ITEM 5. OTHER INFORMATION

In December 1999 we entered into a purchase agreement to acquire certain of the assets of Softdisk, Inc., including the downloadstore.com website, and to lease the screensaverstudio.com website from Softdisk, Inc. in exchange for cash, Common Stock and an interest-free note payable over 12 months at $9,150 per month. The note payable was secured by the downloadstore.com website and a customer list (the "Assets"). In July 2000, we defaulted on the note and subsequently failed to make timely payments in August, September and October 2000. In November 2000, Softdisk foreclosed on and subsequently took possession of the Assets to satisfy a total secured debt of $55,000. We believe no additional amounts are due Softdisk for the secured debt.

In September 2000, Coast Business Credit sent us notice of default on our loan and security agreement and demanded full repayment of its loans within 45 days. On September 28, 2000 Philip Lacerte ("Lacerte"), a director and shareholder of our company, purchased the loan from Coast for $296,000. As a result, Lacerte holds a senior secured position over our assets.

In November 2000, a shareholder demanded rescission of a $150,000 purchase of securities. We deny the right of rescission and intend to vigorously defend any action brought by the shareholder.
