Re: Ur-Q ... buyer's market or seller's market?

	ah, yes.  mongrel indeed.  i suppose that's what i have
	done, to some extent, with my urq, but in the end i get
	reliability and fixability that the wx crap cannot offer.
	i actually considered a 20vt conversion (the rr, right?)
	but when i had the funds, the mc was already in process.
	i am quite pleased with it now, though!
