Is that what that was about? Hmmm, thanks Stuart, I am far too naïve of the ways of business I fear. The way I interpreted their comments was that they might be persuaded to rent us some space if we insist on it, but they want to structure the deal to throw our butts out as soon as a real company comes along, and they don't want to hear any whining about how there are no other hangars anywhere which would accommodate our needs. Google is the real company that Ames had on the hook the whole time, ja? That is a good example of why engineers hire business people, then call them "boss."
