Subject:  Re: More on Air Consumption....
Before anything else, let's talk Subject Lines.  How about we keep the
"Re:"s down to a managable three or less?  :)  Or are there many email
readers that don't allow alterations to the subject line?  Just curious....

Interesting thought..... either I missed the novel in question (title,
anyone?), or just skipped over this section rapidly.  However, if Helms
allow one to return to a "standard" setting, allowing such environmental
factors such as gravity and temperature to be set to bearable levels, I
don't see a logical inconsistancy with it controlling air pressure as well.
