    I'm sure these costs a pretty penny. I wonder if we'll next be paying to take monorails to our final destination?

    I predicted this on our INTERCOT Insider Podcast - if an announcement happens in the next 9-10 months, someone owes me a hundo!

    Perhaps the payment should be done wither live at a meet up (hint, hint this November?) or on the podcast for us all to enjoy!

    Shareholders should consider this reinvestment into the future of the enterprise, not a cost that must be offset by additional increases for the customer. At some point you have to stop taking profits out and put some investment back in.

    Note that these would be driverless which would potentially cut costs in the long run

    I believe the shareholders and the executives should hold fast knowing they have a system in place and it works. Sure a door stays open, and a piece falls off every now and then. It happens. Doesn’t mean they have to shell out MILLIONS to change it. I mean not until after February 11th 2019. Then they can make all the announcers they want.

    Hey, I didn't name names. I merely said we knew who that person was.
