Thanks for the reminder. (grin) About the cryo, too. So much of what  
I've heard about the treatment sounds like Black Magic (tm) that I  
took a bit of time talking to Dan Zlock about it. You probably know  
all about it, but the rest of us are a bit in the dark. Dan did give  
me enough information from his SAE conferences and his own experience  
I'm convinced that it works, although it still seems to be 1 part  
science, 2 parts art.
