Hi Fred,

	Thanks a mil for this insight. Actually, it's the first time I see someone 
refer to project management as being similar to parallel processing. In fact, 
the optimisation of projects, with critical paths, milestones, simultaneous 
ends/beginings and dependancy makes of this approach quite convinient... now 
if only I could find a tool that is scaled to CPU times ;)

	The Gantt chart was definately what I was thinking of...without even knowing 
it. Thanks!
