Of course, but it's comforting to know there's someone in the community whom
we might hope will know the answers to questions that arise. :-)  FFR, what
are your platform specifics (e.g., I'm running Win7 Home Prem. 64bit), in

Mathematician: noun, someone who disavows certainty when their uncertainty

Hope: noun, that delusive spirit which escaped Pandora's jar and, with her

by Robert Graves)
