Quote:Faith, thanks for the link. And your site is coming along nicely. Great splash page. Sounds like the Down Under Trip was fanstastic! Good luck with your studies. Maybe you should come to Tucson in sunny AZ (well, generally sunny). The U of A has a stellar Ph.D. program in astrophysics etc. (no pun).
