---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Fri, 16 May 2008 05:51:33 -0600 (MDT) From: phase at booyaka.com Subject: Small butterfly valve Harlan posted a link to a 1/2" NPT butterfly valve on Grainger's web site for $10. That sounded fishy so I took a look. The Tech Specs list the item as a "Ball Valve". Also, the description includes the words "Full Port." Sounds (and looks) like an overpriced bronze ball valve to me. Harlan, please proceed with caution. Cheers, phase Return to table of contents
Date: Fri, 16 May 2008 08:35:34 -0400 (EDT) From: "Pat Babcock" <pbabcock at hbd.org> Subject: Another fundraising push Greetings, Beerlings! Take me to your lager... Our ISP is once again pushing a deal on T1 service. Though not as important to our email subscribers, this will greatly increase the availablilty of the HBD and Brews and Views websites for our web users. The monthly charge is $379 compared to our current $195. Commitment deadline is 31 May against a 3 year contract. If the HBD can raise the first year's service fee ($4558) before the commitment deadline, I will risk the remaining 2 years and commit. (If someone is out there wishing to sponsor the HBD, now's the time to step forward! In fact, I will work with a sponsor who wishes to commit to the full three year period with the ability to advertise on the HBD domain beyond the current header ads. It's gotten to the point where the HBD's current funding model is no longer sufficient.) Aside from this, the HBD lays claim, at this moment, to $474.24 with $2925.45 left against the current contract, not including any other expenses. Soon, we will go to the cupboard and find it dry... - -- See ya! Pat Babcock in SE Michigan Chief of HBD Janitorial Services http://hbd.org pbabcock at hbd.org Return to table of contents
