I'll also try to scan the thing I found the info on and add that here too.

My apologies if something is incorrect... like I said... it's just info that I found and thought was interesting. I guess by skipping around on the card when I posted/typed the info I messed up some of the info.....BADLY!!!!!!! [smilie=a_doh.gif]
