(sorry for the long quote, but, i wanted to include it)

thanks Ryan... as good an explanation, as i could imagine.....

So, lets say, im at 200... and i use 1 unit to drop 20 points ..
it seems like i should take 4 units, to get to 120..... 

how long do i wait, and how soon do i test, so as not
to or stay too high, nor go too low???

 (though a good (and interesting) explanation, the real issue, is NOT, What

but, "How do i (we) deal with it" ?)

(it does appear, that its easy, to push a few buttons, and Over Do IT)
