Robert - I'd like to see the whitepaper but the tinyurl.com address you posted seems to be invalid.  Could you check this please?

Hi,  thanks for pointing this out.  You are not the first.

The link is valid - it seems to have an issue clicking through the SSC.com site (don't know why SJ?)

To access the link, please cut & paste it directly into another browser window - let me know if any issues - RP
