    What was the reason for going to the effort to hang onto everything? Weren't quite ready yet at the time to judge what was salvageable?

    Makes me feel better that someone else had such a tough time with this as well (I snapped the ear off completely in the press).

    I don't actually know but have always assumed he has at least some percentage ownership in the company.

    I'm not familiar with vbox/pbox results, but would like to learn. Is slope literally referring to the grade of the road on which the run was performed? As in you started at 112m above sea level and...
