[TowerTalk] Long cable pull

Thanks for all the good ideas on pulling cables.  I'm glad I asked.  
There were some good suggestions that I had never thought of.  For the 
string, I have a shop vac and will try that.  I can also add an air 
compressor to the other end if that doesn't get the job done. I just 
finished a couple of styrofoam mouses (mice? meese?).  I rolled it into 
a ball using some heat so it came out much denser than regular 
styrofoam.  I always use the cable lube stuff (can't remember the name) 
that I get at Home Depot or Lowes. 

I'm surprised that no one picked up on the "landscape lightning cable 
for dc" typo that I made.
