I wish I could afford a nice FC-AL setup. That stuff looks so
nice. Full-fabric is probably overkill for me.
Well, time to go focus on decidedly lower tech (and more frustrating) VBA
coding (sigh, gotta pay for stuff, it's either this or become an
admin). Any one want to hire an unproven (read no experience) graphics
