I just wanted to add, about the gravity moving inward our outward along the plane, I've been wrestling with this one, mathematically: There is a function which, as x goes from zero to infinity, describes a line which approximates the "official" SJ gravity, where the orientation is downward towards the plane, and then parallel along the plane, moving outward. Well, OK, it's the positive and negative version of the same function: y = 1/x, y = -1/x However, I can't think of a function which describes, as x goes from zero to infinity, points downward and inward. At first I thought that y = +x^2, y = -x^2 worked, but then I realized that that points outward and upward, rather than downward and inward. (if I am confusing anyone, join the club ... I'll upload the graphics showing what I mean to my ftp site later today, when I draw them on company time) - Sean -- Sean K Reynolds | "We hug and we kiss, We sit and make lists a.k.a.
