Reliability and low cost... wait a minute don't i work for you?
i've got that quote you asked for. you know 15 .lbs of sh*t in a ziploc
sandwich bag. we can do that for free and it has a half life of 33 million
years. let me know if this will do. if not perhaps we can get more creative
with the payment schedule. ;)

sorry i cannot help for real. but i can't say these things to my customers
and i'm sure all of us have felt like telling them that on numerous
occasions.

oh well, time to put my gloves back on and try to squeeze all of it in that
little bag!!!

good luck!
