Default Poto Beware

Poto, I'll assume that you saw the warning specifically to you in John's blog in ref. to their new tool but if not:

"PS: Consider this fair warning to a certain Oceanographer who saw an early version of this tool while in Portland a couple of months ago–I will use my considerable Tool Potentate Powers if any of your comments betray my weak moment while you were here… let’s start by pondering the following phrase: Banned for life.

I love power!"
John

Yep - I saw it loud and clear! I think that John wants to reserve all the taunting for himself. No, I'm definitely not going to spill the beans. But I'll repeat what I said before: you're going to want this tool, so start saving your $$!!!

That being said, I can't figure out what either of John's teaser pics are for the CT-17. And I know what the tool is!

My first thought is that it's some sort of layout tool...

It's going to take a lot more than Shawn in chaps to get me to spill the beans. How 'bout a collection to actually buy me the tool? Nobody (including John Economaki) knows what it's going to cost. But if you collect more than the cost, I'm happy to put it toward other tools. Let me know if you need my address to send checks.




Chaps? Eeew!

Poto - I'm beginning to think you and John have been taking lessons from Steve Jobs.
