    suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.

    Chris, Thanks for your help with the all night baseplate drilling.

    I wish the materials would have arrived on time, and we then could have had more time to talk.

    Postscript: I clipped the cross connected ground wire in your turbotrack's DB15 to make it differential input. This way it matched the other one on image size.

    We had everything buttoned up, and loaded by at 10:30 AM and I was on the flight ay Sky Harbor by noon. I caught the tail end of the hurricane in Charlotte, and got back to Cleveland 2:30 AM.

    So burning your abstracts as a four foot by four foot image into the paint was somehow objectionable?

    wasn't my wall, i'm fine with it.

    the best part of the evening was when karl said "the abstracts on the inside wall are lighting up the entire back yard!" and we all started giggling.

    PS- Swami if you are wondering where you left your aluminum foil coated safety goggles, I found them out on the deck of one of the big lasers.....
