First of all, let me thank everyone everything I've learned reading through the forums. I recently returned from Afghanistan, where every night some of the people I lived with would some cigars. Several times I joined them, and when I returned home I found that I missed the camaraderie (as well as the time away from my wife =P). I ordered a few cigars and a humidor from cigar.com. When I got the humidor, I looked up what I needed to do. I put in a shot glass half filled with water,dampened the humidifier and waited 12 hours. 12 hours later, all the water was still in the glass. I again dampened the humidifier and left it for 24 hours. Still nothing. I feel like I am missing something simple, but I could sure use some help!
