Careful.  That's not what Rick's question really asked.  He simply asked
what devices people are using to loop.  Apparently, 2 people do use the
device for looping...  One is Steve Lawson, and the other is.... YOU! :)

On this thought - one way to handle this might be to drop the outliers (the
MPX G2 might meet that definition) from the compilation and summary data,
but to leave all of the raw data intact.  I'd include a description of how 
decided which data to exclude, and the total number of devices/owners
affected, as a preamble to the summary data.

Other thoughts?  Make it quick.  Tomorrow is the last day!
