Hi Roger, Right now my situation is very negative. I don't think going for a PhD in Music composition would be any better, especially since I haven't composed anything in 20+years (otherwise I might be headed for Tuscaloosa). And computer science is probably out of the question, given the level of my math skills. Jeff
