Argh!!!! I think I know the site you're thinking of! But I don't remember what it was titled, or any other significant phrase which might make it easy to find. It's probably bookmarked somewhere within my far-too-many and far-FAR-too-disorganized Favorites folder, but even searching through that I could come up with the Magic Words to find it :-( But I remember seeing it!! Years ago... and now I don't remember... ~sigh~
