*You* can hardly wait! For decades(!), I've dreamed about
getting 2 seconds per second experience afforded by the
original plus the copy, and despite all the work, genuine
realization is still decades away. I'll probably have to
wait for uploading  :-(

You probably just encountered the prototype/facsimile that was
supposed to be confined to Marin County while I was in Tacoma
this summer. Please don't tell me it was loose in the south bay,
nosing around Palo Alto or Stanford.

And Mike, if you have any details about a Patagonia sighting, please
forward them to me---it's possible that yet another one has got away
(I've never been to South America).
