Oh, boy, Allen, I wrote a really cool reply to your awesome article today. Unfortunately I must have forgotten to published it, for I do not see it. And it’s also unfortunate that once I have written something and then it’s lost I can’t seem to go back and recreate it — darn! However, I suspect the world will survive my goof.
