No, I was. I misread a comma as a period and when I scanned ahead to see
if I could find something similar in other examples I missed the part
where it added in the cpu cost. After I sent the message I looked some
more and spotted what I missed. I didn't have a copy back yet of the
original message, so my oops message wasn't threaded with the original.
