Bart, as usual, just jump right in there and put everything in perspective,
why don't you?  Seriously, I have seen more and more new techs coming out
of school with their techniques embedded like newly minted coins in their
brains, and it's probably a good thing to see that there are many many
different ways to scan and get good results, right?  I, myself, have found
there are many ways to do the same things and get the same results over the
years.  Painful as it may seem, I believe it was you who taught me "Learn
something new everyday, otherwise you may as well just lay down and die",
wasn't it?  Anyway, it sounds like something my first mentor would have
taught me.  Take care, my friend, and let's keep the schedules open.  Love
Shirley McLean
