Hello tdick,

I can jump in and add that without the help and encouragement of
professors from several universities I would not have been able to
build the array here in Panama.  I get help from professional all over
the world.

I try hard prepare my questions in a way that shows that I thought
about it and explain what I have tried on my own to get to an answer.

I will add that there are, especially in Panama, some very insecure
professors and professionals that share nothing and see my hobby as a threat.

But for the most part most of the professors I have dealt with
especially those from the University of Bergen in Norway make me want
to go back to school.
