So you are then in the same situation as Seth, when he pointed out in a 
way that he didnt have the time to really get into this. I dont think 
there is such a thing as shortage of time - there are 24 hrs in a day, 
and thats pretty much every day of every year really. When people say 
that they 'lack time' I presume it means that their priorities are 
elsewhere and they would rather be working on something else.
