Re: Modelling partially broken?

Looks like the problem, started at the end of the Day
Like Daniel, from programming, told me, one time,
8 hours a day, of programming and running the machine, is about all, anyone is good for.
After 10 hours, you will be lucky ,if you can get the machine, to start.
Good Luck
