Well said Dennis.

   What I've said before was where were all of these people when we were 
building p3d...
I know that I didn't do a lot of work on it, but I did help out when I 
could. Sounds like if all these people would get their fingers off the 
keyboards and on the TOOLS  we would have all the sats up there that we 
would EVER be able to use.
