Bill,

Sorry, but I sort of expected that folks could read between the lines
and assume (as I did) that Harry or someone would post specific instructions
for such a test. Then folks would do the tests and post the results.

Yeah, I know the old adage about "assume"... ;-)

By the way, Bill, are you "for" or "against" Harry's idea? The tone
of your message makes me think you're not real hot about this idea.

Posts their results? Of what? Perhaps I missed it, but unless it is
clearly stated what is being tested under what conditions, it is
unclear that 'results' will mean anything consistent.

Ron Bergman has proposed a good plan for resolving this annoying issue.

Let's try *real hard* to resolve this via the PMP mailing list. If
everyone posts their results (to the mailing list) by a particular
cut-off date, then we'll all have access to that data as it arrives.

Once the data has been reviewed, perhaps then (and only then) we can
put out a call for a telecon...but only if folks really think it's
necessary.

At the very least, I hope we can do whatever we can *before* San Diego
so that we don't spend precious time during those meetings on this
issue. This issue should be resolvable across the wire.

If for some reason the group decides to spend precious meeting time in
San Diego on this topic, then would it be possible to MANDATE that the
issue be fully resolved at that meeting (and not brought up again some
two months down the road)?
