Re: Music!

That actually reminds me of something. The title music for The Exorcist was Mike Oldfield's original Tubular Bells . But there's a story that, after hearing some of TD's music, the writer William Peter Blatty is said to have wished he'd used them for the score to the movie. As a fan of Tubular Bells...

Re: Double Precision?

I never really doubted that there was a Master Plan, but it's still nice to have it clearly confirmed. Thanks! And while keeping it :squirrel: away is a little annoying to me (because it means I can't help by contributing at a strategic level), hey, my loss for not appreciating in time that this is ...
