No, but I was suspecting that roasting w/o chaff filter was extending my
roast times. My suspicion is that the old chaff collector reflects more heat
than just the door & floor w/o iy.

Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.
I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate.
All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.
