Hi there Cap,

    Well, not quite. 
    Please consider :-

 1 Some of us are good at making things and some not so good. Can't they to 
join in too?
 2 There have been several kits of parts sold in the past, but they haven't 
spoilt things.
 3 Some of us have been lucky enough to buy an old 'professional' instrument. 
Getting any seismometer installed and working is quite a task. Should they 
stop contributing?
 4 It is easier for a schoolteacher to raise money for a 'proven instrument'.
 5 Many of us have been very grateful that Larry sells ready made electronics 
boards. Few of us are good at everything.
 6  The success of the group has much more to do with learning and willingly 
contributing, than with anything else. THANKS AND GOOD LUCK TO YOU JOHN !
