"This was BC (before computer) and unless you're an old guy like myself -and- an Engineering type, this sounds kinda archaic (which it is!) but "we" used to create all kinds of charts for all sorts of studies on the "drawing board.""

LOL. I've still got 2 slide rules .. so I guess that means I'm not young either .. and maybe even an engineering type. I also remember manually charting stock prices on 11"x17" chart paper .. but even then it was "constant ratio", aka logarithmic, price scale.

Thanks for the extended reply, Ron
