      Eric,

      Many thanks for the kind words! Serious props go out to the YUI team,
      too, for pulling together a library that's simultaneously flexible
      enough to let something like Thinkature happen and robust enough to
      let it happen with so few of the headaches inherent to the platform.

      Cheers!

      -Jon
