Right you are but look where they brought us. I think that smoke signal 
could be construed as both however. Transport and data. each puff of 
smoke could be representative of a packet and the grouping would 
certainly amount to some sort of information like 'Custard is in the 
valley....' In either event it was an enjoyable thread while it lasted...
