Thanks, but the web is a miracle in the speed with which it enables 
a fool to become an expert.  That is Internet Time at its best or 
worst depending on what you think is progress.  Is the worst the best, 
or is it only that simple needs should be met by simple means?

Ahh rats!  That means I have to publish in a respectable journal

DGTWI:   bottom -- a distinguished object that occurs as the value 
of a partial when that function is applied to arguments for which the
function make 
no sense. http://logic.stanford.edu/kif/dpans.html
