RE: 590s broken in shipment:  If you're talking about Doc's machine, it 
was FEDEX not UPS that broke it in shipping.  I'm now at the point that 
I'm tired of their incompetence and going to start using UPS instead... 
hoping that they're not as retarded when shipping heavy objects.  We'll 
see how this works out...
