Thanks, Fred. We try to be easy on the system as it is not that beefy. If need be we ask it for all it's got, but I always wory about something flying apart under the strain. Hasn't happened recently, but we had some design flaws that manifested themselves in the early years of operation. I noticed when I was on the DQ that engineers tended to be sensitive about rough handling. They were delicate with all that steel.
