   I had a question today as to if is required to use the 'hereis' text 
Mark put in his original challenge email.  My feeling is 'yes'.   Just 
filling up an array with serial ASCII characters defeats part of the 
challenge -- one could certainly imagine a scenario where arbitrary text 
is used in a non-serial manner.    But maybe I am saying this because 
working with the 'hereis' took most of my less than 2 hour effort (I 
almost never use 'hereis') and so want to see what other people come up 

    I am looking forward to Tuesday to see what people come up with.
