Finally the following leaves us with an interesting question to which I do not know the answer: namely why are there almost as many reader hits coming in from Germany as Malaysia, and then why so much interest from Romania, Switzerland, Italy, etc. That question must have some sort of answer but for now at least I do know have the answer.

I invite our readers to comment and offer their explanations for this unexpected wave of interest.
