Hello everyone. My name is Lou. It's been 32 days since ... Oops... wrong forum! I'm a Systems Analyst/Programmer by trade (was a Control Engineer prior to Y2K,) and a science junkie at heart.

I did like the Simpson's episode where Lisa invented a perpetual motion machine though. Especially Homer's response: "Lisa, in this house, we obey the laws of thermodynamics..."
