I just skimmed the article, and it looks like just what I need, coming in a close second to sleep. I can't wait to read the whole thing tomorrow. Thanks for posting that; I've been in need of an impedance epiphany for a while now.

Based on your profile pictures, I would bet on you exiting the Thunderdome intact.
