<p>Hi Frodo, long time no post? Or maybe I missed your posts because your posting in another area. In any case, hows it going?&nbsp;</p><p>I love it when an idiot like Commander Zohan goes on a rant like he did only to have success thrown into his face when something like what happened today or yesterday. NASA succeeding with the soil getting to the oven. Had I been able to reply to CZ, that would have been the first thing I would have mentioned. Give the folks at NASA a chance to do their jobs. The thread was already closed by the time I found it.&nbsp;</p> <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <p><strong>My borrowed quote for the time being:</strong></p><p><em>There are three kinds of people in life. Those who make it happen, those who watch it happen...and those who do not know what happened.</em></p> </div>
