Yeah, that's true. In the original message I noted locale and other preference settings, but I did fail to mention it again here. The other option is that I'm wrong, but as we all know, that is such a rare occurrence that it may as well be a nonexistent option. If it were the case, though, I would certainly need to concede the point.... It's interesting that you mention getting different results from someone on the other side of the same office. I would guess that it's the difference between preferences, perhaps even default language settings, but in all honesty, I don't purport to understand more than a fraction of the Google algorithms.... I'm just glad they're there. And finally, you may not contribute (nearly!) as often as you once did, but your responses haven't lessened in quality by any means. It's "Stut, Concentrated." -- </Daniel P.
