Funny you should ask about class action checks. I just today got a check for $28.95 from the Aon Settlement Administrator. Problem is, I have no idea why or what class action I was in. Yes, they sent me lots of info, but I had better things to study.
As for Faro, I sold mine. I bought Hexagon during 2005--it started 2005 at about $12 and is now just under $30, moving steadily upward. Faro had better hope the market is big enough for both of them, because Hexagon looks like a very strong competitor. Scott
