Don't worry, I think I camouflaged it pretty well there...

I mean sense in the sense of an automatic answer that you don't question.

Oh wow! That is incredible! And beautiful- and something about it makes me emotional. And I don't have time to go through it now. Bookmarked.

Was quite the experience, took a few months, and unlike Click and Drag there was no way to 'look ahead'. The forum thread on it was hilarious to follow...
