Sorry. No claws out. That was just the sorry excuse for humor that I make do with around here. Tell you what: If I ever do go into applicance design, I promise I will make it up to you by designing an especially bad appliance just for you.
And KurtiusInterupptis: For why the "engineers!" comment? You wouldn't have any applicances to fix if there weren't any engineers to design them wrong.

In other words - It's a joke ,so you can retract the claws- please continue to churn out new appliances so I may continue be gainfully employed:?
And regarding my current job, I assure you I had nothing whatsoever to do with the part that broke and delayed your last flight to Vegas. Really, that was some other guy, not me. Stop looking at me like that. :?
