oh yes  ! very smoooth guys ! happy faces are always Fun to watch Smile

even liked the GPU interference  that made it  real & spontaneous

pretty sure that folks if they were viewing a geek vidcast like this episode for the first time would be pleasantly surprised.[

guess I should keep the fabric softener remark ..quiet.
