Having not slept since Monday night, all of this is making less and less 
sense as we go.  I may well need a diagram to clear it up after I get 
some sleep.  My mind just keeps going in circles usually because I 
somehow get thinking about point-to-point T1s as an example of 
something, and then can't remember what.  I'll happily admit I may be 
saying something incredibly stupid.  I can say with certainty, sleep or 
no, that my 27/7 is much nicer than my 7/.8

It's one of those days =cP
