    Thank you,

    I find the hardest part of learning something new is discarding the things I knew were right but were actually wrong.  I had gone back through all the notes on this LOP topic to find the point where my thinking departed from the group.  I made up the tight rope walker to zero in on the point where I 'came off the track'.  Right now I can follow your line of reasoning until I blink my eyes, then I lose it.  I think in a couple of days I will agree with you.  This will make it twice this year that this group has corrected my understanding.  The other was in the long discussion of geodesy.  While some may object to the endless (mindless) discussion of a subject as being pedantic and boring, I know of no other place where the fundamentals are so carefully discussed.
