Dr. Stephen Wolfram, Sir,
Dr. Steven M. Christensen, Sir,
dear contributors to this forum,

I (*1950) owe to you my past career in the banking industry.
You endowed me with the instruments and techniques to calculate results I 
only dreamt of before (1967 - 2002).

Please continue.

With all my reverence,
