Ben,
If you could please shrink this post or links rather, those damn links I posted are stretching the page again somehow.
Thanks,
Mark

No, I just wanted to post abstract stuff without having to give it a specific label. If anyone has ever seen the show Connections, hosted by James Burke, he travels through history showing how one invention affects some other technology far removed from the original invention. That's how discoveries happen sometimes, by accident, without intention, something that just happens to come to mind from some far removed source, yet it applies to the project at hand.
