    You're right at the Frankie but we covered that
    a few months ago already (November or something).
    If you're interested in the

    This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
    Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
    For information about the journal and the list (e.g. unsubscribing)
