Should I forget HC? Honestly?

Hi Ingar,

The only reason I can see for wanting HC again
is if you have tons and tons of old HC stacks
that you really need to be able to run without
having to do the work of turning them in to LC stacks.

If that isn’t the case for you, then I wouldn’t waste
the time.  LC is the all grown-up version of HC
as others here have stated.

Likewise the cost to do what you want to do
after a simple cost benefit analysis I believe
would show that the cost isn’t worth the
little benefit you might get back.

Good luck with whatever you decide to do.

But certainly not without an approximate suggestion of the price. My email at the University of Oslo is ingar.roggen at Why not give it a try?
