    "I see strengths in DDG's resume that Tom didn't have. Let's give the man a chance to develop his own business vision before burning him at the stake in the town square for the perceived sins of his predecessor. "

    To suggest Rick said anything regarding DDG to warrant the allegation quoted above is downright absurd, abrasive, and counter productive to civil discourse.

    "I used composition as a catch-all, more than one component. "

    Thanks.

    "I see no reason to rise to the bait ...."

    What bait. Rick and I each expressed reasoned opinions which really required no retort of any kind from you or anyone else.

    kevin, "fairness" to current share holders almost certainly takes a back seat to perceived short- and longterm business interest(s) of the underwriter. We can be sure the forthcoming financing will not be a 'rights offering'. Existing shareholders most likely will be offered an opportunity to participate in the offering at or above some $ minimum threshold. What that minimum might be is anyone's guess but almost certainly not less than 4 digits and possibly not less than mid-5 digit range.

    " I don't know how to say this politely, but I have been surprised at the types of elementary problems that have been apparently major issues at ePower. The "tinkerers" I know would not have been flummoxed."

    :-) John's reaction to your straightforward critique was a bit more temperate than his "your lying" tirade last December in response to a much more oblique remark. The contrast is informative.


    "If Axion did not require NDAs and related corporate bureaucracy, nobody would expect live-in tech support."

    Thanks for the "and related corporate bureaucracy" expansion on the NDA requirement noted earlier. Was there mention earlier of a requirement to return batteries to New Castle?

    Thanks for info, trip. Top-of-the line siding is not in the card(s) if we decide to replace existing siding we will go for a twofor -- better appearance and insulation properties. Proximity to heat isn't an issue since the fireplace chimney and furnace vent flue are integrated into a two story brick wall. Siding is all second story except for the face and front 8 ft of the two car garage.

    While I would prefer to redo the siding myself with a hired helper or son-in-law it will probably be contracted. Otherwise I'm virtually guaranteed weeks-to-months of hearing, "You're too old be be climbing around on ladders and scaffolds" and "You've got the money, pay someone else to do it."

    "I plan on relocating in a year or so and therefore did not want to make a big investment."

    Share that point of view. And thanks for the feedback. Apart from fading issues, in Maryland - Virginia I've noticed mildew populating some walls on lots of vinyl sided homes -- new and not so new. By composition, are you referring to concrete-wood fiber-ash or to composition materials?

    Fascinating stuff, trip. Thanks.

    Speaking of siding, anyone have recommendations to offer on same? Thinking of replacing our 45ish yr. old vinyl siding.

    (My second priority for the year of voting with feet and moving out of Maryland is unlikely to be realized this year. Neither my wife nor I are sufficiently enthusiastic over alternative accommodations investigated to date.)

    Had not noticed volume today, only glancing at the closing price and change on the day after reading the AXIH PR on quarterly performance. PR read more positively on quarter developments and outlook than I expected. Next quarterly will be interesting.

    A while back in my inimical wisdom after reading about their construction mats I wrote management to suggest looking into market potential for a roofing product. Availability of such might reduce roof repair bills and home owners insurance premiums in hail prone regions.

    It does look like an NIH group product.
