I don't know what "commending" a post does, so I'll come right out and say that you're WAY too good (i.e., smart) to be postin' roun' here, but I'm glad you are!

As someone said (whatever his motive), big growth in revs. without being able to make a dime is NOT a good thing.... And mgt. payin' itself super-handsomely in the face of at least a little miscalculation and over-optimism rubs me the wrong way.
Well, this is a smallish investment for me -- part of my triple-A play (ARRS and ATHR being the other 2 legs of my stool.)
