Moreover, the values for r (r = 35 or r = 39 depending on which type of exponential function is used) were suggested by me based on the formula

and the reality of it all is that probably 85% of us don't have a clue about the formulas. of course, it messes with us. we never know how the h"B = S + D*exp(-P/r)"l the block time is arrived at........fayeroe
