    Sorry, tried to read the references but my brain is still in the holiday mode. So, the data look solid, no issues with experimental accuracy, etc.?

    No sad here - take beauty where you can find it

    Again, they planned it to pave way for the 3rd edition.

    I DID enjoy the argument with my 4th grade teacher on the nature of gravity! As a result I learned: 1) authority doesn't necessarily know diddly 2) I was going to have a difficult life.

    How fancy do you plan to make it? I think it could well be a DIY. I have a design for a DIY version lying around in my papers somewhere. Remind me to check if I don't get back in a day or two.

    (I have dangerous party plans in store for this evening.)

    So I went to the local establishment and managed to avoid the local Queen Bee of the Guild of Femmes Fatales who insists that I'm going to dance. That's the good news.

    The less good news is that ownership capriciously changed the rules on distribution of tips so the server who has diligently catered to my gentle whims gave 2 weeks notice.

    I'm devastated.

    I need to talk with the owner. He needs to read Shakespeare's Richard II.
