    so why believe you have any concern for your customers?

    I love you, too Smiley 

    Yup, you said it all glibly.  

    I took your bait and now regret it. I'm sorry I ever responded. It hasn't done either of us any favors.

    I never should have responded to your technical evaluation which my customers who have experience with both detectors would regard as an outlier.  I should have just let it pass without comment. When I pointed it out, the discourse went downhill.

    You may not regard your comments as insulting, just the "plain truth", but since I've poured my life and soul into pleasing detector customers, I found it personally offensive.  It seems that I'm not cut out for this sort of web interaction.

    Yes, it seems obviously simple to make a product by listening to customers.  That's what we tried to do with Gen2.  It took decades of listening to customers and engineering development to arrive at the current product. The supplied suction mount combined with the Gen2's slimmer housing helps keep the windshield obstruction to a minimum.  Plenty of customers are delighted by that.

    It doesn't have a gooey cup windshield mount option yet because our engineers have a basket full of other priorities made VERY worse by the international chip shortage. 

    It's amazing how busy trying to stay in business can be.  I guess if I actually cared about my customers, I would have pre-purchased 2 years of critical parts inventory before they became scarce from our vendors (with no notice except non-delivery).  Re-designing several iterations of circuit boards and re-writing the code to match available processors (of which there are very few) to maintain production is focused on customers whom let us know about long backorders. I also would have hired 3 or 4 times as many customer service reps as I needed because it was easy to forecast the staff shortage caused by COVID and I would have ended up just right. 

    Again, I'm sorry I don't meet your standards.

    I actually like you and what you contribute here.  So the repartee ( Smiley) was partly in jest, but I see it was interpreted as FU2.  Was your comment an FU to me?.

    Let's don't do this anymore Smiley

    Thanks Guys,

    Since it's coming off anyway, we ditched the boot today

    IMG_4017.jpeg

    And got to drive properly to the hospital for pre-op today.  Amputation is the fastest Way Back In hiking rather than risking 8 more weeks infection  spread trying more massive antibioticsSmiley

    We're off for amputation Friday:  Bone infection needs to be cut away before I lose my Left lower leg - the good news is it's my clutch foot and the Pista has no clutch!!!  Smiley

    Oh my god, Watt...I feel so sorry about it. SmileySmileySmiley 

    I wish you a speedy recovery and I am amazed of how you seem to take things...not sure I would be able to do that.

    Kudos to you and your mental status, you are truly an amazing person, Watt. Smiley

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Ha Watt, glad to hear you are on your... ahm... feet again mate!

    Sorry, couldn't help myself, I guess I have a dark sense of humor. All kidding aside, wishing you a speedy recovery mate, take care and get well soon! We can't go for much longer without any picture updates from way back in. kiss

    We can all benefit from Watt’s mental toughness and positive attitude. He’s a real inspiration.

    +1 Great attitude. kiss


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Haha!  Back on most of my feet again --- aerodynamic improvementskiss 

    Enough to hike, which is all that matters!! Healing nicely but obeying my surgeon's request to leave off boots and hitting the jump off until next week's visit to the Wound Dept Monday and Post Op Thursday!!!  So happy to leave this dangerous bone infection in the rubbish bin! My shoulder can carry propane tanks again!!! The titanium spine a work of art, technology and skill!  

    When the Lord bring challenges one after another, one speaks to God as Job:

    "If I lift myself up, You hunt me like a lion, and show Yourself inflicting marvelous trials upon me."  Job 10:16 Amplified Bible.

    Epictetus and Marcus Aurelius, slave and emperor -- read them over and over again, their perspectives priceless.

    Thank God for the chance to bounce up and fight on  - I'm still  vertical!  Thanks to all our RennTeam friends!!  The Crewe sends their all encompassing love!

    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Amen. I gotta stop procrastinating and read Marcus Aurelius 


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    With the current rate of inflation, it’s almost an insult to call you the Six Million Dollar Man of RT.  Glad to read that your recovery is nearly as quick as your Ram TRX.  On a more literary topic, how different have you found the various translations of Aurelius?  


    Re: SUN'S LAST RUN TO WILSON, WY - 991 C2S CAB LIFE, END OF AN ERA (Part II)

    Glad to hear that surgery went well.  

    Admire your spirit and attitude towards life.  

    Thanks for the lesson in life, Watt.

    Too far back to recall when, I found George Long the best translation of M. Aurelius. I have perhaps 12 copies from my $9800 fine M.A.

    IMG_4223.jpeg

    IMG_4224 2.jpeg

    And the copy I carried for so many years I had it rebound on the '90's, George Long for M.A., and  P.E. Matheson who is best for Epictetus who is just as valuable as M.A.  I get little value from Lucretius or Epicurus.  If you can find this volume, you get both authors plus excellent commentary.

    IMG_4225.jpeg

    IMG_4227.jpeg

    I pored over this copy as you can see:

    IMG_4229.jpeg

    This volume also includes Matthew Arnold's Essay on M.A. quite wonderful as well.
