Greetings dear Dwig,

Thanks for making me aware of this mental model. I was thinking too
rigidly of the logic in and between the windows rather than the windows
having been created for a much more powerful logic available in code.

Three cheers to you!

How many times have i not wished for the ability to search for two
phrases. The latest was in searching for data of fluoride poisoning of
various species of fish. Our provincial government now wants to fluorodize
drinking water without taking into account the pollution of our feeble
rivers in which little dilution is possible.

With care and best wishes
