Haha, thanks. Things were getting too speculative. The idea of saying
"there's a good chance the deal will go away" and "we could end up with a
longer backlog if we don't order now" without any reasonable way of
knowing just bothered me. It was FUD and I don't like that.

I certainly prefer to just get things done rather than speculate back and
forth, especially when people don't readily agree - facts tend to solve
problems and speculation only makes them worse. I'm glad that we've been
able to get this done though and I'm proud of all of us for making this
happen! (assuming we get through the next couple of days and everyone pays
without the world exploding).

And I will certainly take you up on that beer. :)
