Thank you,

Thank you very much. So I guess I might throw that method out the window! In the past I have been watching all of the normal signs and stopping when I get any of those main indications, but I need to use my chrono more. I guess I get lazy and when I'm running short on time that is one less thing to mess with. I usually end up checking my velocity at some point, but I need to use it more in the development stage!
