Old joke: Prominent scientist gives a lecture on the space program. Little old lady comes up afterwards to speak with him. LOL: That was all very interesting, but it's nonsense. Everybody knows that the earth is flat and rests on the back of a giant turtle. PS [humoring her]: Well, what does that turtle stand on? LOL: Each of his feet is on the back of another giant turtle. PS: Well, what do THEY stand on? LOL: Now, young man, you can't trick me. From there, it's turtles all the way down! Somehow it seemed appropriate in the context of Language X implemented in Language Y compiled to Assembler implemented in Microcode which manipulates Function blocks implemented in Solid state circuitry dependent on Quantum mechanics ... ;-) -jn- It's turtles all the way down! joel'dot'neely'at'fedex'dot'com
