    Response from George Huxtable.
    I understand that there is an archive, though I haven't used it, yet.
    Perhaps someone else will chip in with information about how to do so.
    This thread was triggered off by an incidental mention about cocked hats by
    Peter Fogg on 12 April 02, under the thread heading  "Timing Noon". To
    follow all the twists and tangles of that thread, look under that heading
    from 12/4, also under "Are we most likely not where we are?", also under
    "on LOPs", also under, variously, "Still on LOPs", and "Still on LOP's".
    Hope you manage to disentangle those threads.
    There have been no references to the Ogilvy book you mentioned. If it's
    relevant, please tell us more about what he says on the topic.
