i guess that [OFFTOPIC] label is just as good as "flock()...." or
"floating point ..." -> most people push "D" and forget about it.

Nonsense. What do you say about the following construction:

- I mirror a plain lightbeam to the Moon and back to some target. In those
20 seconds or so, i can step to the target .... i'm faster than light???

If you say that you can be faster than light >on the same track<, then you
>are< faster than light. It means nothing if you reach a point in space
faster than a lightbeam.
