I guess a "mathematically literate" anything could do it- that
statement is sort of meaningless. But if it was meant to rile me for
(assumed) lack of mathematical ability, there may be another 4 month
thread approaching. We ALL aren't engineers you know. :)

And I am aware that the digest people are getting p***** o*** at the
length of this message. So how come they have stopped complaining about that?
