Thanks Chris,
That was quick, and of course it was right in the last section where you
said it was. I just read right past it; I guess I wasn't expecting it to
be at the top in plain sight. Anyway, thanks for digging it out.

What do you think about this? I sure haven't ever seen this happen, and
as you know, I'm not as inclined as you are to give most of these old
guys the benefit of the doubt, but I'd say as a rule, Demachy knows what
he's talking about. But I'd sure like to see this myself.
