Good... this way you can make more of whatever the hell they are. :-)

Actually, I said feet at first, but then thought I had misread it, so I
corrected myself, or so I though. I was misled because i said:

PAC Strapping 4828-300 1/2" x .028"

I thought this meant it was 300-1/2" long. But turns out I had it right the
first time.... :-)
