Carl,

I don't know if you saw the NOVA special about the observatories high in the mountains, but it was really cool.

One of the Ph.D.'s was cutting some aluminum to patch a hole. In radio contact with base camp, the experience was recorded.

You could hear how frustrated this brilliant man was. And you could tell that he was oxygen deprived. "No matter how much I cut it, it still won't cover the hole!" - and he was very serious.

Gary,

Yeah, I remember the old saying "I cut it twice and its still too short!"

Thanks for your input.

Enough said about the crappy framing... Regarding picture 3 - Blue Romex? Uumm, eehh eehh... That would be Cat 5 networking cable. Hard to tell with the one next to it but it looks like Coaxial.

Thanks for your input Kyle, you are quite correct, it was com cord and the photo I posted was not the intended submission. Nice catch!
