Hi all just joined the list, Got a upgraded 2000 coming my way, so I figured
I join up WOOT!

Curious thou, why is this perceived as a bad value? While I don't make
nearly as much per hour as Thomas (bummer) I am one that would rather have
it installed for me. In my case its merely time, which I don't have much of
these days. And what time I do I have to spend on other things.
