good say! that's why i hate responding to code posts, tho they do help... and i usually reply in word descriptions since a lot of the technicality ends up in the users coding preference. [of course, when we do discuss preference, we can still talk with words]... and in my requests from this board [which are too few actually...] i usually speak in ideas, not code... so... good say... all agree?
plus if you describe a sequence to any hmwk-mongers, you _do_ answer the question, but if they can't understand it, then they shouldn't be in their nth week of their programming course anyway! right? right!
