Interestingly enough, although Moore and Grosch are well-known 
old-school gentlemen from the mainframe days (which would explain the 
quaint "hard/software *boys*" nomenclature), a Google search reveals 
that this Jablokow person is apparently .NET specific, because the doc 
you're reading is the only place the name is mentioned online. 

I can't imagine why a company driven by OS licencing fees would be 
profligate with hardware resources. :-)  But it doesn't surprise me 
that it takes a 200 page epistle to get you ready to drink *that* 
Kool-aid, though. After all, my dusty old copy of Petzold for Win95 is 
1100 pages. It does have some code in it though.

PS: Estes, if you're still planning that hypothetical vacation, I'd say 
printed copy of precalculated passes is probably the way to go.
