[IP] Re: Not Quitting But Close To It
I have an extra Silhouette that I'm not going to use and I can send you a
Sof Set to try, if you'd like to try different sets. Email me off list

I like the QuikSets myself, mainly because of the disconnect at the site
(SofSets have a "tail), but definately had better results with the SS.
