Diana.....I have used that naming pattern "formula" just enough to find out
it gets me in trouble....only safe way to me seems to go at it
backwards.;..if the formula says the guys name "ought to be" Joe then you
look for Joes....and if Joe doesn't pop right out toting his own "proof"
forget it. Besides, I was confused as to just what ethnic group or
nationality it was supposed to apply to......several different ones have
claimed "exclusive rights"; the Welsh most loudly.
I'm about ready to deep six my inoperable HP Scanner after having every
super-geek in the world to look at it. Lo and behold in comes this months
issue of Consumer Reports giving best buy rating to a $65 Agfa jobbie that
also has OCR (provided the "copy" is "type" and assuming one has sense
to learn how to use it) which is a real plus. Also interesting that the best
buy guy was only 300 dpi and CU says there is not a nickels worth of
difference that the average eye can tell.
Part of my xerox collection out of W&M Quarterly are four or five 5-page
studies from Dr. Hall titled, for example, "A Study of the William
Poythresses". As we have discovered, Dr. Hall's studies are often flawed by
his lack of information available in the quantity we have it. However, it
strikes me that these will open some doors for us. Soon as I can get cranked
up I'll start on it, having finished off the PG in Clayton.
