You saw my earlier post about 'saving survivors' for the Napoleonic
Spanish and Algerian Turcos I am sure.	If it didn't work they wouldn't
say anything, me thinks.

Seems easier to use grid paper then buy another table for a 'standby
spare' IMO. <grin>

Ooooh, rational long term planning.  I have got to find a way for the
agency to send me for a couple of weeks of 'work' to Tasmania...  I
suppose you and Derek can find any links from Tasmania to Singapore,
Burma (Sorry DOS - Department of State doesn't let us call it Manmade,)
Malaysia, or the Philippines that would justify the agency sending me
for a few weeks?  Well, it's an idea.  <grin>

Gracias, Glenn/Triphibious
