    Ah, I see the issue. SN10 is afraid of heights. Came down with weak knees. Good thing SN15 will have a new leg design instead of these placeholders.

    I certainly have been MIA. Moved out to Oregon for a short while, then up to Alaska last summer to volunteer on an organic farm and then worked at a wilderness lodge for the second half of the summer. Living in Bozeman, MT, playing in and exploring the mountains.
  6. So that is what you have been doing?
