 Dear Tony Beresford ,
 Apparently in the whole world ,since Nov,96072A sees only you.Thank you
for
 your one-man show.As you wonder if the drag is steady and why,here  are =

 the results of my  analysis.
 Your latest point (Dec 16) gives .0001623 , but I did not dare to list i=
t
because it
 provides a wrong i.
