That was more a point for Dave than a general one...TRACE could be  
traceable (and preferred in the UK) WIDE wouldn't be traceable, and  
allow travellers through an area to function without having to re-

Thats true, a fella here rang me to know why his newly configured TH-

I though it was at the time, but no one else seemed to ;)

Anyway, I've painting to do (and I just got my AIS reciever  
configured as a source for NTPD... so I'm accurate to a second or so  
at least ;))
