That's deep John K (and a bit over my head, though I do see your point kind of, since not having redundancy is akin in my mind with a distributed data hard drive seek process over a network where your application times out and get a memory page fault because the distributed data took too long to be found and collected by the microprocessor) and I appreciate your knowledge. I also admire anybody who uses their real name! LOL, better you than me...
