Colin, you are absolutely right. It was something like a few blocks indeed. I can't be certain but did it feature in Auntie's Seven Wonders Of The Industrial Age series they aired about three years ago? I know I saw something about Edison/Tesla on TV.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, waging all things in the balance of reason?

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe.

Two roofers, Larry and Joe were on the roof laying tile, when a sudden gust of wind knocked down their ladder. "I have an idea", said Larry. "We'll throw you down, and then you can pick up the ladder."
"What do you think, I'm stupid?", said Joe. "I have an idea. I'll shine my flashlight, and you can climb down on the beam of light."
"What do you think, I'm stupid? You'll just turn off the flashlight when I'm halfway there."

I thought that is what the "Watch" feature was for. You bookmark something and click the "Watch" thing.
Granted, I have never actually been able to get any hits/results from this, but I thought that is what it was supposed to do and just blamed my old browser for messing something up.
BTW, I just noticed the hover menu for the user name on the top right has a "My Watched Items" entry, but it goes to an "Unable to load the requested member's information." message.
