I was happy to meet a couple of APUGers, too. I somehow escaped without buying anything, but I'll be calling some people this week to buy the things they didn't take with them to Watertown. And Whitey - I have a possible lead on some cheap neg carriers ($20ish). I'll let you know.
I came really close to going into LF, too. It's just so pretty. Does anyone around here teach how to use them?
