    Yes, in fact, I did hours of work and extensive outside research before my
    initial posting, going way beyond the requirements of the assignment. I
    didn't realize, though, that I would have to go into so much detail when I
    posted. I do believe I was upfront, though, from the beginning. I just wish
    that you hadn't been so quick to question my character; I take any attacks
    against it very seriously as I pride myself on my honesty and my ethics.
    
    I would love to have you see the plotting I did on the charts, the
    calculations I performed, and the conclusions I drew from my research.
    Yesterday morning I had no idea what a Mercator and a great circle chart
    were, but now I do. Not only do I know what they are, but I also understand
    how to use them. All I was trying to do was learn.
