<sigh>  I suppose you're right, and I certainly can't come up with any valid
arguments against what you're saying.  I just get think we engineers get a
little tedious sometimes :-) and I enjoy seeing folks discussing other topics
from an engineer's point of view.  For example, I get a kick out of some of Bill
Allen's comments and the responses they provoke, even when both annoy the hell
out of me. :-D  It makes a nice change.
