Bridgeman, that is a nice post that I somehow missed.

My personnal addition (or contraddition) to your post would be that I feel this discussion should now be moved to Skiing Ninja's web-site. They have the tools to host the discussion and that is where is should be relocated. Those interested should join there (and I might do it myself), and when there is something to report (apart from those silly in-room graphs), then the results can be recovered here and a sane discussion could then ensue on both fronts.
