There is no we or us here.  Those predictions were mostly made by Greg
Burch, a couple of people piped up with comments, and Greg took some of
them onboard on his write up.  That is all.
(I wish I would have written down some predictions, and I admire Greg's
work ethic in actually going through with it and remembering to look
them up after all these years afterwards.  But this is no lesson to
anyone else unless you remember agreeing with those that wrote them)
