Marshall Clow     Qualcomm, Inc.   <mailto:mclow_at_[hidden]>
The famous British scientist, Lord Kelvin, said:  "When you measure 
what you are speaking about and express it in numbers, you know 
something about it, but when you cannot (or do not) measure it, when 
you cannot (or do not) express it in numbers, then your knowledge is 
of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind."
