This sounds very interesting, but I guess I have a case of dumb. I don't understand exactly what you are saying here. I'm not all that familiar with all the components youare refering to. It does sound like you have solved a problem, but on a larger scale what is the overall significance for the rest of us?? Is there some sort of advantage to be gained with all this?

Really, I don't mean to be dense about it, but I would appreciate some more explanation about the significance of these conponents as relates to the WBX's.
