Everyone knows that estimates are always 10% low, even when they take this into account by adding 10% in advance.

Hofstadter's Law
It always takes longer than you expect, even when you take Hofstadter's Law into account.

Taken from Godel, Escher, Bach, one of my favorite books.

ricree101, you are correct! I was alluding to the famous Hofstadter's Law. GEB is one of my favorite books of all times too! My paperback copy is now looseleaf, I've read it so many times. Your sn has always reminded me of ricercar. Is there any relation? Wait, wait, don't post the answer here. Write me an email instead. [Wink]

Hey, I like this idea. We should campaign for the last post. With cheesy slogans, flashy banners, and libel galore!

If elected to hold the last post, I promise to have my last post reflect the atmosphere we tend to find on our humble Hatrack. I will not forget my supporters nor those who did not support my run. I feel appreciation for them because they help to make sure I am kept in line. They are a loyal opposition and bring to the table different ideas, thoughts, and beliefs I promise to take into account.

So if and when it comes time for us to cast our votes for the person to give the last post, don't forget Vadon!
