This chat with Garvin was important hand-holding and reassurance for me. This is a one page summary of our conversation. (Note: chronologically it should be listed here before the Christmas Questions document.)
Shortly before Christmas, after reading all of his papers, I posed a series of questions to Garvin. Here are his most interesting responses -- four pages.
The dialog continues.
This is Garvin's six page reply to my initial response to his Commentary.
