    I used printed lines calibrated for various distances instead of the
    computer screen.  I searched the test patterns and and a spread sheet and
    they were produced between December 14 and December 31 in 2005.  I suspect
    your method was posted shortly before the above dates

    Of course not, or I would not go boldly where no simpleton has never gone
    before believing I had been there already and everything was AOK ("alright"
    for our foreign readers); especially as I have demonstrated time and time
    again I have the attention span and recall of a crack baby. (For our foreign
    readers, a "crack baby" is an infant born addicted to drugs [crack] as its
    mother abused drugs during her pregnancy.) Your point is well taken however.
    Your hallway method used a laser and its purpose was to determine IE/EC, not
    micrometer drum eccentricity.
