So how busy were the AP offices?

The family atmosphere of that company is about the only example I know if where such a claim was true.

Thanks for the replies, folks. It's always nice to get some positive reinforcement after a big layout of cash....

The OkieTex dust is fine, like talcum powder and sticks to all surfaces. Especially troubling is how it sticks to the rubber housing of the Hand Controller. I had to use a lint roller to get it off there.

At AP's offices I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. You have to be 'buzzed in' just to get to the reception area - it's not at all a retail operation. The front office is as my photo shows - two women garrison the front office and all the rest must be out back somewhere, making stuff. George was very helpful in spending a while with me to show me everything I needed to know about setting up and running the mount. No Roland sighting....

Dave
