Jerry man way out there in the woods of RI,

Don't you know these products of that company which produces
windows.... the next one seems to be no.7.

Now here for some test: Does your projector display the following
clip? Probably not.... but who knows ;-)

It's not an add, it's just a test. It's not about a fruit either but
about a nice assemblage of physical phenomena in its purest high-tech
form.

Regards from bad little Switzerland
