    I learned from the Cosman DVD, or I should say the first half DVD, as he doesn't go into all that I thought he was going to. (Sells more DVDs that way, I guess). I went a step further though. I...

    Amazing. One guy can coin a term, and it gets so used, most people don't know the real name any more. Transitional planes, #6s and OBMCs. What will Pat pick on next?
