    the use of words to convey a meaning that is the opposite of its literal meaning
    If at first you don't succeed; charge, charge, charge again.

    Canada delivers quality: Icynene, Bryston and Simaudio are examples.

    I have no idea why your post made me think of some great products that have come out of Canada.

    Some type of disorder I'm sure. Can I borrow $500,000.00?

    See, now I think you are confusing Irony with Sarcasm.
    I think.

    I have a difficult time finding words with just one meaning.

    A literary style employing such contrasts for humorous or rhetorical effect.

    Right, that means you were being Sarcastic.
    I don't know anything about those companies though so I don't get most of your post. I could research them but I am way too lazy.

    It just hit me; the recent posts and how at any level we as an industry all to often fail to deliver the promise.

    I think its been said many times before. It doesn't matter what the brand name is, or if you buy the lowest or highest line of equipment.

    Its the contractor that makes all the difference.

    Its just that with the internet, we heard about it from all over the world.

    Almost makes it sound like ouor industry is going backwards.

    I would not say that, but I do think our technology like computer technology has got ahead of itself a little here and if someone has not planned "way" ahead, were all going to be in trouble in the near future, I don't care what brand you sell. When you put this almost scientific technology out there and you expect the average Home Owner to understand it much less trying to find contractors to install it correctly, and also be able to make money at the same time is going to get harder to do, time is money in this business it always has been and always will be. They should have just stuck with the good old 10 seer equipment, it worked well for most and the Home Owners did not have to take out a second mortgage to purchase it.
