order may be an obstacle, but if you follow my advice and knock over a liquor
store on a Saturday night, you should have enough dough to pay for
theevaluation board and enough beer to last you until it reaches you. Of
course, you have to split the take with the driver ...

Well, there goes the life-insurance method of finance ... back to plan A. So,
why can't you buy Altera in Cananda?
