                IJMC - A Small Deluge of Corrections

For some reason, that last batch had more errors than usual. Granted, 
"trivia" bits usually do, but that is hardly an excuse! Ok, so in my 
hurry to send out dozens of posts, I am not proofreading as well I as 
often tend to do. Thank the fans to do it for me...             -dave

Just a little typo though. Being one who hails from New Zealand (and I had
to do an assignment on that hill in school) then actual name is:

Te Taumata Whakatangi hanga ko auau o Tamatea turipu kaka pikimaunga
Horonuku Pokaiwhenua ki tanatahu (e)

Hows that for a name eh ???

hmm... I thought "tackyon" was spelt "tachyon" ..........

Erm.... 'Cat's in the Cradle...'  (Harry Chapin)

You should know your friendly neighbourhood music geek is stickler for
