    I don't wish them to hurry, Elaine. After all this time, they just must take their time to do it right. They must. Imagine the grief and chagrin if they rushed it...and something happened.

    They should paint a large mark on the cable when it reaches the bottom of the mine and then they will see it whenever they get near the bottom each time!!
