    While your response was sicinct at in actuality answered both my questions in a brilliant fashion it would have expedited matters somewhat if you had further elaborated upon your response with an indication as to what these types of apperatus were to be referenced as. :)

    Please eleviate my exacerbated curiosity with exacting indication as to the name of the apperatus in question while I lambaste myself for the obvious stupididy of asking the origional question in the manor which I have :)

    Cheers - Shortened version

    What are the devices that I asked about called - I just realized what an idiot question it was.
