Sheesh... the designers seem to be saying they just missed that feature. 
Your opinion on this seems somewhat exclusive. You seem to say that they 
designed the box for someone other than us folks with the criticisms. I 
don't believe that's true.

You seem to want to speak FOR them... that's what's intrigueing to me. 
You're not asking Electrix anything. You're making statements about what 
they might or might not have intended. (Or possibly taking their general 
statements about the product a bit too literally.)

I'm sure I just don't get what those geniuses are tryin' to do with that 
fancy box! Jeeze Andre... I've gotten my answer from Damon. Had we just 
shut up and not asked, he'd be less informed of our particular desires; 
and we'd not know if they're going to do anything about it. I'm very happy 
to actually know they have plans to add the feature. Damn... we'd all just 
believe we're getting ACID in a box based on your statements; and Electrix 
would lose a few customers based on the belief that they really DON'T want 
to add the features we're interested in.

Sorry you're taking this so personally... I've always found your input on 
the many ideas discussed here interesting and insightful. In this 
instance, I felt you were just jumping between us and the people who could 
REALLY answer our questions.
