I hope so! It'll mostly depend on work; I actually have some, for once, so I'll keep you posted on my availability.
Have you ever been to Ohio? Those are the worst roads I've ever seen. Looks like landmines and artillery damage.

There's nothing strange about that desire; destroying mutants is completely understandable, and we here in the Republic of Dave condone it to the utmost degree. We do not, however, condone the lack of air lines that we are still experiencing; it's preventing us from re-installing our lockers and causing a general delay of progress.

Yours have less wear than mine, overall; mine have intact edges, though. Hmm...

Today's Jeeping: Air lines are here, and I actually spent an entire day being gainfully employed so I can hopefully start applying a bit more funding to the upcoming Muppet Labs projects.

By all means, do so...and post your pressures and mileage as well. A good comparison would be most welcome!

You will love the cable shifter if it's the Novak one. Easy install and works like butter.

I know, it really is...but I really do need some type of day job in order to keep the power on here at Muppet Labs.

That's exactly the one that I'm going to use; all reports indicate that there is no reason to look elsewhere.
