Wow, Fringe, such an accurate portrait!
And we haven't even met in person :)

I would only add:

-you have two single drive, 3-motor, 3-head tape decks, coz you think

achieve that precise azimuth alignment.

-you take your sys to your lab on a Sat evening just to optimise the bias
setting to the tapes that you use for recording.
