The gift, and my many thanks!

Attached please find the pictures of my the new Dell computer.

The screen is huge! And I have found that it is a great addition to my work as a polisher. The pictures are so big, clear, and detailed, that I can see scuff marks, scratches and whisker marks I could not ascertain with just the lighted loupe' I normally use.

Not only was this present a show of support, but it will allow me to refine my work at a higher level. I'll need that.

Ken Schwartz just told me he has invent 5.3 million grit nanodiamond slurry. I asked him if this was to polish hospital instruments. He laughed and said, "Oh, I'm was past that..."

I know, and I will never forget them. Truth be told, I thought "brotherhood" (the 1960s biker term for 'loyalty onto death') was a long gone virtue. But you guys proved me wrong, and I will remember that every time I sign on.

Speaking of cameras, my wife wishes she was holding one when I opened the box...

Cool that you can see stuff that was formerly invisible. I shoot a lot of wild flowers, and sometimes it isn't until I'm editing the images at home that I find little Easter eggs, like a previously unnoticed geometric pattern, or a tiny bug sunning himself on a petal.

So you gonna take anything into the realm of 5.3 million?

Well, Ken and I talked. It's very tempting. Then again watching your entire customer base be hauled away by ambulance for blood loss, sliced femoral arteries, missing fingers...

...You indeed can see stuff that was formerly invisible Rusty! Modern cameras are capable of seeing sharper than our eyes, it's amazing.

Digital Cameras are known for details. Years ago, when digital cameras came out, they were very expensive. There wasnít even a civilian market for them yet.
One market for them was insurance adjusters, especially for auto accidents. They picked up every detail of the damage.
