"The Notes provide that Lender has the right, at any time on or after the respective maturity dates of the Notes, to convert the Notes into shares of Borrower's common stock.  However, Section 3 of the Notes provides that in the event that Lender has not converted the entire principal amount of any Note on or before its respective maturity date, Lender has the right to extend the term of such Note for a period of time mutually agreed upon between Lender and Borrower.  The parties hereby modify their previous agreement and agree to extend the term of each of the Notes itemized Nos. 1 through 13 on Exhibit A, effective as of the maturity date of each respective Note, for a period of time ending on June 30, 2011."
 
2.           Governing Law.  This Amendment shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of California, without regard to the conflicts of laws principles of that or any other jurisdiction.
 
3.           Counterparts.  This Amendment may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, and all taken together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

4.           Miscellaneous.  This Amendment, in connection with the Original Agreement, contains all of the agreements, conditions, promises and covenants between the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, representations or understandings with respect to the subject matter hereof.  In the event of any conflict between the terms of the Original Agreement and this Amendment, the terms of this Amendment shall govern. Except as set forth in this Amendment, the terms of the Original Agreement shall remain in full force and effect.  This Amendment may not be amended, modified, altered or otherwise changed in any respect except by written agreement signed by authorized representatives on behalf of Borrower and Lender.  If any one or more of the provisions contained in this Amendment shall be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect, the validity, legality or enforceability of the remaining provisions contained herein shall not in any way be affected or impaired.
