    I think Table 1 is missing on the webpage.

    Otherwise a very intresting introduction. Thank you.

    Articles such as this really do need to be written with perfect punctuation. If not, credibility is zeroed.

    The author is made to appear ignorant of their own ignorance, pretentious in attempting to appear more educated than is true. Simultaneously, the author insults the reader, who is obliged to make allowances for the author's poor quality.

    For proofreading help, please contact david.cuthill@asperto.net.

    In case of doubt, leave out all apostrophes entirely, especially "it's" (where the apostrophe is always used to show contractions ("it is"/ "it has") and never used to try to show possessive). It is better to omit an apostrophe than to go to extra trouble to insert an incorrect apostrophe.

    Really? "You have no credibility ,are ignorant because you used an apostrophe incorrectly in a technical article, are pretentious and insulting, contact me for help"? Does that sales pitch actually work for you?

    @david Cuthill,

    Punctuation is not everything, as your post illustrates perfectly. Bob Shelton is a good, well-respected author with many publications to his credit, and this is an excellent article.

    Best wishes,
