Vacuum Cleaner vs. Tracker Bar Pump
By Craig Brougher

Colin Hinz brought up a very valid point about the diligent 1920's
wife who always cleaned out the trackerbar.  Of course, such quality
is necessary today as well, if we are to have truly automatic and
efficacious trackerbar cleaning.

I think possibly a large button that says, "I am a 1920's kind of wife"
might work.  Then again, maybe not.  But one method that is sure to
work is the "trackerbar lint box system."  Since trackerbar dust is
very distinctive, if you will supply her a box in which she can store
all the lint she gets out of the trackerbars around the house, then
when it gets full, she gets diamond earrings, pearl necklace, tickets
to Disneyworld, whatever.  The smaller the box, the more enthusiasm she
will put into the project.  So if it's earrings, let her fill an
earring box, and if its tickets, let her fill a ticket box -- uh, well,
maybe you can adjust that one!

And (cough cough), I have been trying to measure my super-behemoth-size
"Banshee model"  F-16 shop vac pressure without success.  Every time it
sucks up the bowling ball it pinches off my gauge tube!  Does somebody
have a better solution?  Please, not back to the crevice tool!
