<DIV><FONT size=2>Small update:  The numbers above are slightly off.  The profit for Dye / Ink / Spell should be a touch higher since I did not include the 50c loam sale price (only added that in for reagent).</FONT></DIV> <DIV><FONT size=2></FONT> </DIV> <DIV><FONT size=2>By the way - as of v1700T Dyes are still tidy profit makers (125% of cost) compared to all other items which are net loss.  Not sure if this is **working-as-intended (tm)** or a mistake (suspect the latter).</FONT></DIV>
