Pericolo - whoever you are - as a _long_ time contributer, and (I think)
as the guy who invited quzah here in the first place - mind your manners
and your tongue, and read a little more carefully. quzah was questioning
the eight neighbor assumption, not the six neighbors. James was going by
the geometry of original presentation, and assuming storage would be the
same.

As far as the "fairly uninitiated postings" bit... who, then, qualifies?
quzah asks questions when he doesn't know something... perhaps he is not
so much concerned with teaching as learning... but he has always seemed,
if not the most experienced programmer present (but then, with the likes
of JCL around, even I feel extremely intimidated, and I'm very good), or
the most ambitious (and there are some *very* ambitious people here), at
the very least, a quite intelligent young man, and worthy of respect. If
you persist in being nasty to him, it will not go over well with me.
