Yes it does. I was not aware you did not have interests in your past

I do agree that the need is there for a consultant/outside expert to assist
and direct new/small companies to the appropriate technology. Many
engineers and others have been sold a "bill of goods" which was not desired
or needed and soured their taste of our still growing technology.

Best of luck and thanks for the reply,

Carl Dekker
