    I appreciate the info; one of my clients in Rotterdam may be able to translate the gist to me. Probably OT but while I'm here - there is a VAST amount of mis-information in the media here about several current astronomical phenomena in the states. Between Mars larger than Moon in December (as it is every opposition), our doom tonight via asteroid TU 24 and the spy satellite that is falling from the sky, science is taking a back seat to Chicken Little again. Good Luck, Marco, hopefully you can inject some reason into the discussion.
