    Dan,

    Keep the crate small enough so that it will fit in the back of a mid-size SUV or mini-van. It may not be smart to limit the market to owners of pickup trucks!! Not that I have anything bad to say about owners of pickup trucks. I owned one once.

    Darn, just as I was writing this I saw a report on CNBC's Fast Money that the market for pickup trucks is expected to increase a lot as the market continues to improve!!

    Sandy, I am using DPL. And for whatever reason I find it better to scan on RGB and then convert in photoshop. Occasionally I go the gray route and after waiting an hour find that I don't like the scan as much as the RGB scans.

    I do have to fight the urge to just simply do the same thing over and over. Because when you fall into that rut you miss the chance to do something so totally stupid wrong that for whatever reason turns out to be a true masterpiece. :-)

    DPL doesn't do that... It does a conversion based on the same numbers PhotoShop uses.... and uses too much of the red channel.

    I have just read another post in a different forum from someone at Genesis. My initial response was based on an event probably in 2003 or 2004. It's true, it was a bad experience, but its quite possible that they have expanded their division and have changed. Upon reviewing how long ago this was I would suggest that people get their info about this place from a more current perspective. 10 years is a long time...

    Good Post Lenny - 10 years ago is a long time as you point out.

    Yes, 10 years is a long time ago. Wish I were as smart as I thought I was in 2003!!

    Hey Sandy,
    Knowing you, I think your brain (even in 2013 ) is more than fine, way better than mine. More important, I would say modesty is one of your best attributes, sort of scarce around here.

    Sandy's has had a brain clone with Sam Wang recently to keep him up to speed.

    Well you would have to find the DNA somewhere else if that is the goal.

    Could you try Monty McCutchen... not only is he modest , he is a fine looking Texan and maybe some of that will rub off on me.
