Hi Steve,

I think what you have missed is what I've discovered after sitting in
meetings that run on about the same topic every time they meet, that what
i grasp tiday as new and exciting, was discovered last time by someone
else (who is now bored), and next time by someone else (who is now
confused or not on my wavelength). As much as we put formula's to things
and try to measure, we are human beings and our lives are all at different
places. This affects our thought processes. So what is clear as mud today,
may be as cloudy as water tomorrow?

My 2c worth (and that's south sfrican so it is probably not much)
