Re: [FAQ]

Nick, Travis, All, 

I completely agree with the frequent lack of lucidity when it comes to
ascii diagrams, schematics, and formulas. I've seen some pretty confusing
examples, and feel confident that I would be able to help rewrite most
items to be a little clearer. I've been complimented before by some
listees on my ascii skills, so I might be able to help in this area. 

just a thought.
