Hey lex,
i was just curious to know how things are going for CAT Cables. Did things pick up and are you looking at any new products?

Nolan, things are still pretty quite. Honestly, it's just spotty at best at this point. I think I reached a saturation point of CAT dominating my thoughts and time outside a day job after 5-6 years. Add to that everything else including the forum, and it wears you down after a while, so I've been fairly content to go on building what I build, and not devoted much time to development. Photography has taken some of my off time, a passion I enjoy. Life has to be about more than work sometimes.

As far as the biz, well, a good bit of my business is international now. This is a fairly dramatic turn. I'm not sure what to attribute that to. I have 3 orders shipping today, one shipping to US but destined for CA, another to Malaysia, and another to Sweden. (Biggest order to Sweden) Go figure.

I still do a little USA biz, but it's tight.

That's the busiest week I've had in a good while honest and its all destined for international

Well Lex, have you taken a look at the US exchange rate lately!? The dollar is so affordable these days...

I did consider that may be part of the advantage with international. You know, I'm glad to see you all get a value. I knew the dollar was down. From my perspective a dollar is a dollar, so it's a win win.
