I have no problem with the word 'OFFICIAL' in communications
that Jon sends out. The word indicates the direction of thought
and in no way implies/requires obediance. (Lets face it folks,
We are all going to do our own thing.) JTL

Besides the fact that I didn't really understand it, nothing.
(I admit to being slightly brain dead and highly overstressed at

I feel that the 'fighters move last' is the proper format
to use. It just would not 'feel' right to have a mass 100, thrust
two ship outmaneuver a group of fighters.
Bye for now,
