Ted, this reminds me of my mom - she pasased away five years ago, almost 96 - 
when I told her ten years ago how I fax a draft document to my cousin, a 
solicitor in Melbourne, how I put my draft in the fax machine at 6 pm, push 
some buttons and his telephone number in Melbourne, and as the paper is going 
in the machine a copy is simultaneously coming out of the machine in his 
office in Melbourne at 9 am next morning. She says: impossible, how does it 
work? I answer, haven't the foggiest. And Mom, do you know how your telephone 
works? No. All you know is enough to make it do what you need it to do.
