WOOHOO, you remember!!!! Way to go Alan!!!!

You and several others know that I stink at describing a complex point
regardless that I understand it completely. I am just glad that you hung
in there long enough for me to get the point across.

Everyone owes HPA a debt of thanks for suffering the most to help me
explain what it is I know but could not describe. If you ever have a
problem and need a sound board that will make you think in ways you have
never tried before, HPA is the man!
