hi all,

I dont want to be facetious (however ones spells it), but
I have found that it often doen't matter what execution order you
have. And when it does, there is a solution. The trigger object,
abbreviated "t", allows you to send exactly the signals in the
right order to where you want them. No wierd background property
boxes, all the functional properties on the surface where they belong.
that part of the PD philosophy?
