No, no, you missed my intention. I was playing a pun on the word "am". "Ohm" can be construed to be a back, open version of "am", you see. (Back/open as in the vowel quality :-P) So it's a pun on "I am the Borg..." The caveman reference was my way of hinting at the shift in vowel value there :-P T -- Roasting my brains over a slow fire. Please do not interrupt this process.
