Eric, do tell more. What is this that you tease us with. Freedom Plate?
I Mrs shaw bought me a Diverite Techwing at the Chocolate Lobster Dive.
I was overwhelmed by the generous gift. Kind of funny since I have been eyeing the DIR config. This thing is not DIR. A few tweaks and I could get there, but I thought that I'd dive it for a while, then I can make a true judgment of the differences.

Screeetch.... Sue's voice snaps me back into this world.

"Sweetie" says Sue, "it's for Christmas. I just wanted to see if it is the right one".

Then she waltzes off and hides the box.
