 Yes.  And I must personnaly thank Craig Mundie whose budget that came out of.  
I mean that totally and sincerely as a credit to
Craig, Michelle Herman, Susan Klysa, Hank Vigil, Jim Kajiya, Alvy Ray Smith, 
Jim Blinn, and Steve Gabriel.  We did The Right Thing.
Howard Hughes would have condoned it.

should best be 3 different sizes.  I've been linking
  to it on my web site for years.
