Thank you Stephanie.

I am an electronics engineer, but I find reading this group very
interesting and educational, just as I do many other groups not
related to electronics. To me, one of the biggest advantages of the
net, over other forms of commuications, is the ability to have
interchanges on a wide variety of subjects with people who have
different backgrounds, experiences and education.
