Re: Rebuilding my CUP260

Help me out here. You tell me that there is now way that I'm ahead of you and then now you want to ...

You're digging a big hole......& soon there will be no more olive branches extended to help you get out. Trust me, I'm not a brain surgeon ;) And I'm not Captain Jack Sparrow... telling us what you're not, is not telling us anything at all. Why don't you tell us what you are? And I was just beginni...
