I have posted on my web site a writeup of my project. I am still missing some pictures and will get them there in the next day or two. Meanwhile, I thought it might be useful for someone who may be having the 'popular' gauge problem.
Note: I left out the 'http' so that it wouldn't just pop up here in the messages. My site is www.winfordr.com You can click through to the other stuff if you like.
