You are impressed by Dan, point taken.
i am quite impressed by Howie, and wouldn't hesitate to learn from him any day of the week and twice on sunday. ok, maybe not on sunday, i got to party too.
but i believed dan mentioned somewhere or many where, that he isn't the only source of IP/IS. there are other folks. human body is a funny thing (ya, some of you looked more funny than other, except for moi). there are only so many ways to do thing. the core/foundation isn't that many things.
