Oh no Flarpy! That's got to be a really sickening feeling, followed quickly by THE RAGE! I hope you can work things out with the tenants. Just keep telling yourself "it's only stuff, it's only stuff...".

When I was moving out of Oklahoma someone rented the house across the street and promptly backed into my concrete and brick mailbox. I was trying to sell the house and they had some sob story about how they didn't have and $$$ to pay for their carelessness. Long story short I had to pay to fix it myself. I'd like to send them a bill, or burn their car to the ground, either one really.

Also, PAX is on Saturday but any Flash Mob activities on Sunday/Monday are a go!

Count me in for Flash Mob Monday Night 3D Throw down at MARC?

Gareth, on another note started crunching numbers for you, spending time reviewing the airfoil & SFG shape for your YAK. Needed more data but got it direct from 3DHS. Already got some uber expert feedback, recommendations & direction. Stay tuned we might have a shot at dialing in your Yak a bit.

Also Flop I owe you some cash for your 8FG

Sometimes in life it's not what you know, but who you know, how you present yourself, how you ask the question & how it might benefit them... When I say 3DHS think globally. That's as much as I am gonna say.

So why does the phase: "These are not the droids you're looking for"...
Along with a creepy hand gesture come to mind?

I lived in Oklahoma for like 5 years. Much happier with the temps here in Seattle. 115 is no fun. I made friends with one of the guys at Zivko. I got to go look inside the facility but thats as much as I can say on here.

It's imperative to never mis-lead or misrepresent but be persuasive with integrity.
