The project of building a linestage is looking like this to me tonight...

One leg is the design. Design means not just a basic circuit but figuring out parts, some known physical issues and working to accomplish goals you've set. This entire part of things is closing in on completion.

The second leg is gathering all the planned together. This means ordering and paying for them. Receiving them and accounting for them. Worrysome is something you've designed in changing or going unavailable. Especially when you have a timeframe to meet! In this project of a group build, this phase has to include grouping for each unit to be built and the creation of documentation to work from. This second leg has some fundimentals done...as I do have in mind most of the necessary sources and costs.

Then the third leg of this stool is the construction. The first two legs mean almost nothing without successful construction and completion. This part is more of a challenge sometimes than you'd think. The better you've done on the first two legs, the smoother its likely to go though.


I'm not positive on this, but I'm thinking at this point, that it's getting close to time to move into the second phase. That means asking for commitments and getting an initial key order or two placed. I can't order until I have a pretty fair idea of count though. So I think we'll have to have a shorter, rather than longer period, for you to put down some dollars and reserve. I wish we could float for a while but we can't meet the timeframe and do that. I'd like to have 7-10 days but at the same time, I'm wanting to get that Hong Kong order placed almost before that time would end.

So consider your interest, please. I'll try to post more details together and we'll get into the next round of things here shortly. Harry, bust you're piggy bank and start counting those penny's and nickels! And watch for this to kick off shortly.
