    OK I'll add my 2p worth, but I'll exclude my name from the prize draw as it would certainly be wrong to award myself the SpaceMouse Wireless :D

    Great article! Thanks for contributing. I had no idea there were "meshless" methods, so this article is quite an eye opener. I look forward to when these new methods "come of age"
