It is great news. To me, the better news is another USA business & livelihood dedicated to producing quality work surviving to fight another day. Very cool.

EVERY time you buy a cheap imported copy or workaround, you're threatening a competing USA provider with loss of market share and closure. I understand how hard it is to afford & sometimes even find domestically produced work. A USA company that charges $100.00 for something that they produce generally doesn't make $99.00 profit compared to a similar import product that can be purchased for $1.00.

It is legitimate economic warfare, often subsidized & facilitated by foreign govts who would like nothing more than to see our resources forever lost as theirs survive. We will all win or all fail together. Rant over.

Merry Christmas, everybody.
