Responding to: Joseph Hebert's previous message
Joseph,

thanks for the exhaustive explanation; I like to learn something new.

I just wanted to say that us who speak mostly a sort of electronics-pidgin instead of English are sometimes puzzled by those extra words you sometimes pick from those 1E8 rarely used English expressions (*). So at the end of the day, you confused me perhaps more with additional 5 new words; than Jez did with that single word... OK, I looked them up in the dictionary of course :-)

(*)My favourite is "ullage". We found it with my roommates accidentally when at college playing with a dictionary; and I like its sound, meaning, and the fact that it takes at least 10 words in Slovak to translate it :-)
