Eliminator has been around a long time and will hopefully be around for a long time to come.

Timing was sure not in the cards for Eliminator, that is for sure. The new facility they built was definitely top notch. Too bad the economy stalled so fast.

Best wishes, and good luck to Bob and all those at Eliminator.

Leave it to you to make a political statement. I think you should thank Enron, and the Republican criminals who ran it, for almost destroying California's electrical utility industry.

I agree. And as Tank said, it's not the end of the world. But it's a pretty big blow. More than that, it's an indicator of exactly where things are in the West Coast market. Unfortunately, Eliminator is not the first casualty. Even more unfortunately, it probably won't be the last.
