Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Yikes!  You gave me quite a turn, afew!  I suddenly felt like I did in 10th grade geometry when I'd realize the room was silent and -- the teacher was looking right at me!

"...?  Would you care to enlighten the class, Izzy, or are we disturbing your reading/conversation/nap?"  


But apart from the flashback, this is a seriously good post, afew!  The graphs a pretty, too. ;-)

Heh heh! Well, I was playing around with the teacher and class metaphor there, partly in self-derision, because I'd be the one the teacher had made to sit in the front row to keep an eye on him and make him work...

Sorry I gave you the shudders, though :-)
