Thanks, Rick. I'm in the know of what you write.
I've heard it mentioned at this forum. Still, I think
the list members can draw upon this publication,
or refer an interested person to it.

You may not know this but Pat Sloane was one of the biggest
contributors to the TSE list until her passing away almost 10 years ago
(11/22/01).  In the TSE archives you can look up about a year's worth of
her posts. Sometime prior to January 2001 the list server software was
changed and the older archives were lost.

Pat also had an early web presence at an AOL account and at the TSE
server at but these pages are also lost.
