Charlie -- That is a terrific thread. And Tad Stevens is throwing in comments as well. I hang out on SA quite a bit but don't post much. I also have a different name on that site, so I have to keep my split personality in check.
Bob Perry is quite a guy to spend so much time posting on SA. His recent book is also terrific. He has such a simple, straight forward approach to explaining things that seem to get all mucked up here. He also can design ANYTHING. Name your style, he can do it. Anyway, it's great to have access to real design professionals.
