Well, I tried to answer that in my last mail.
If I used the wrong words or something,
let me know
The reason for the xsec was just a random sample
to show my boss that the boards from our new
supplier were just as good as the boards from our old
supplier, and we fully expected it to be just fine.
total surprise to see that condition.
don't really know how to interpret it
p.s. i know the pic is fuzzy, but its all I got.
don't have the actual sample
thanks for lookin'
