          OOP until November 3.
          semi-affected: atsko IR

          André

          long version:
          According to
          http://groups.yahoo.com/group/backpackgeartesters/message/8021
          we were given two weeks for the IR on the Atsko products to be able
          to comment on application. With the Thorlo IR due on November 3 and a
          long weekend ahead in which I'll be away from my computer (testing!),
          followed by a business trip, I will need some of that additional
          time, too.
          I will try to get that socks IR in on time. The atsko IR, too - but
          inside the longer two-week window.
