These results were presented in Portland, OR on June 12, 2000 by Paul Tiegs and Jim Houck as slides or overhead projections. OMNI is working on a written narrative interpretation and perhaps a printed Report but, until then, Paul has given me permission to post the results on line. I do so without comment - except for my notes written on the day of the presentation.
