How long is a piece of string?

How many grains of sand on the beach?

How many stars in the sky?

How many bad movies can Rob Schneider make?

None of these questions have quantifiable answers, I'm afraid.

I am not convinced due to the extensive firebox/wrapper sheet/mud ring work we have just had to undertake that it would be any sooner than mid 2004.
