No worries, Parks - I know Sen will be delighted to get the feedback on it, and will pass it on. Both his work and home addresses are the same, so you should be able to get through to him. I haven't read the article yet, but will be keeping your remarks in mind (and that sardonic comment of Joseph Conrad on "The new seamanship: when in doubt try to ram fairly - whatever's before you. Very simple.")Inger, if you're reading this post, would you pass it on to Sen for me...I'm unsure whether or not I have his current address.
