Hi Noel, hi all

thanks for the explanation, that was interesting to hear (hm, looks like being the anakastic person that I am, I cannot skip the saying-thanks-step here :-) )

But this reminds of something I'd thought of posting to this list, regarding plt's future name -
I would suppose the word "racket" is not very known among non - native speakers of English (okay, perhaps I should restrict my assumption to Germans here), at least i had to look it up (the only meaning I'd known before being "tennis racket" ,which
didn't seem too likely here)
But whatever the name, I think it's a great idea to have a "trade name" like that :-)
