....Sorry GoldE...what`s your question....

Feel free to come to me first...

an acceptable difference is a stupid concept...Why You ask..? . cuz it doesn`t change a darn thing.   Once the BCSC approves the report...IT IS WHAT IT IS.... arguing it will be like someone sticking a $100 bill in your hand and saying "... well aren't you going to count it!!!"    Whether its lower or higher... wasting another minute on it will be a too much time... I prefer to look  through the windshield and not stare into the rear view mirror.... I know where I have been!!!   What I care about is where are we going....

If you ever find out why more drill holes were used ...y'all come  back and report and for gawd sakes I hope it doesn't tarnish the reputation of the industry...that would be criminal!!!!  ( insert Bre-X comment here)...

PS.... the only way to deal with big know-it-alls like you is to keep a little frost on the pnuts.... must always keep a cool tool!!!
