Wouldn't that be funny? Laurence calls one of us to do that. We tell him it
will cost him $134, "hey, you get what you pay for, right? (nudge, nudge)".
Then pass the project and the money to Phil. :-)

If he comes my way, that's what will happen, I guarantee it.

"Peace of mind isn't at all superficial, really," I expound. "It's the whole
thing. That which produces it is good maintenance; that which disturbs it is
poor maintenance. What we call workability of the machine is just an
objectification of this peace of mind. The ultimate test is always your own
serenity." - Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
