Well, while that sentiment was definitely present, it wasn't the only
reason we left it at the door.  The name "Atomichron" is
doubly-appropriate for that device--it doesn't break down any further.
We couldn't figure out how to lift it into the living room (the diagonal
is longer than the height of most of the rooms, as well as the
negotiable distance around all the corners), and Dave was still in the
process of unpacking, anyhow.

If we had five very strong, very -thin- men, we probably could've walked
it in at just slight-enough of an angle to clear the doors, but, while
Dave, Mike, and I are reasonably strong, none of us is very tiny.
