Thanks for the replies.

Interesting, I have not thought about that before, I will give it a try

I also sometimes use [mod], but did not use here because of the float I was
using. In fact, whenever I had to to integer counting, I use [mod] most of
the time now. I can't remember where I saw it first though.

As to Countability, sounds interesting and I know nothing about;) will
google it when I have some time later.
