You are welcome. One of the things previously discussed is possible applications for such a phenomenon. Other than a toy similar to Levitron, none of us have been creative enough to come up with anything.
Personally, I have wondered if the suspended magnet could be easily "handed off" to another, adjacent magnet; thus, setting up the possibility of a new type of maglev transportation device.
