Hmmm.  I only work with 3 other people who touch the machine.... have you
tried screaming and stomping around like a small child? Occassionally, it
seems to work. They tend to get the idea you're upset and they've cost you

I would say see the suggestion above. Even if it is OUR priority, I don't
feel like paying Davinci $30K ( Their current magic number ) or Thompson
$25 - 100K ( their current magic prices )  to fix a problem that shouldn't
be there in the first place. As in, "Design Flaw". Doggone it, I forgot,
some folks around here like to call those "features".

Who would have thunk that Spirits with Davinci's on them would be so
popular? Why I even heard it never occured to Phillips OR Davinci that soo
many facilities would have this combo. What an absolute total surprise! It's
so ridiculous to imagine... but here we are.

Have fun JC, I'm here in "spirit" to support you, but I've been down this
path a number of times and I should point out that unless you are part of a
mega - conglomerate there's a brick wall waiting for you at the end. It
talks too. It just doesn't listen very well.
