I could not be able to build it. My time is better spent making money in
some other way and supporting the people who know.  What we payed is

Though this conversation looks like classic trolling.  Will not read
anymore.

Congrats to the team. I hope to find some time to contribute apart from
pitching in with a few bucks.
