Beats me, I posted a link about 10:3X pm last night and it

vanished! I have no idea what happened to it. I'm going to

try again - wish me luck because I have to hunt & peck 130 keys

without screwing up. Here is the vanishing link:

Learned some new things in that one, I wasn't up to speed on everything about SRT and ART. Will have to reread it, did it kind of fast first time through. Really good they have some data in this area, back in 2002-era or so....about nothing to read on this.
