They do fail. My first one failed just a bit after 3 years and only 1500 hours. The 5020UB refurb was $1100 which was cheaper than repairing the 3020 (for basically what I had paid originally). I...

You could clean up your code and put it up on github. That's what all the cool kids do ;-) But seriously, then people can fork it and contribute back if you want to allow that.

I did add to cart and the price was still over $2,000. Do you have to start checkout? If so, what a non-intuitive way!
