Hi Chuck and all of you,

Why Chuck ?

Meriam Webster Dictionary gave this on the word 'retroactively ' :

Main Entry: ret·ro·ac·tive 
Pronunciation: -'ak-tiv
Function: adjective
Etymology: French rétroactif, from Latin retroactus, past participle of retroagere to drive back, reverse, from retro- + agere to drive -- more at AGENT
Date: 1611
: extending in scope or effect to a prior time or to conditions that existed or originated in the past; especially : made effective as of a date priorto enactment, promulgation, or imposition <retroactive tax>
- ret·ro·ac·tive·ly adverb
- ret·ro·ac·tiv·i·ty /-"ak-'ti-v&-tE/ noun '

The present is now ! Not in the past ! (or is it the future ?)

A story:

The Middle Eastern - cosmic joke - Mulla Nashreddin was once together with a group of people bragging up about, that he could walk in the dark with nolamp.

Ha !, said one of them - didn't some of us not see you the other day walking about at night with a lamp ? Can you explain that ?
The Mulla : "Yes. But I carried the lamp with me, so that you and other people shouldn't run in to me."

Sufilight being present...and the Rugrats too...
