Keith, did you ever find a copy?  I think I have my tri-quad-ology around here somewhere and would be honored to pass it on to you.

And Pam, if I read all those words right the answer is “I like you too.”

I did find a copy, and did exactly what I’ve done with nearly every other book that’s made it into my hands the last few years…. made it about 2/3 the way through.

I sometimes think I’ve lost the ability to read.
