The word "awesome" has been so diluted in meaning these days that it's truly a shame I can't use it here for that reason. "Profound" might be a better expression of my feelings, at least, upon seeing this dream come true. Thanks for the heads up, L'Elic! "Father Silver" (aka Maggiepie)

Sometimes we just know things could be better.

Yes, as with those dumb 50's "science fiction" movies with cheesy effects, really wretched acting & "plot, what plots?" I used to see those things, & knowing how good were the BOOKS written in the milieu, agonized over the putrid films available then, just -knowing- someday films would be far superior. And itching for them to HURRY UP & GET TO THAT STATE OF THE ART! So now, the S.O.T.A. HAS finally caught up, & I couldn't be more thrilled. Film experts now say, "You dream it, we can film it." And MAN are they ever correct, thank goodness!! Maggiepie

I'm glad you like it, I think these science things are just beyond cool - and I can actually remember pre-space age! I remember the upset over Sputnik, the thrill of walking on the moon, the tears over the shuttle disasters.
