your 2 questions are perfectly fine questions. i will answer them now 
that you have explained that they are not asides i should ignore. 
however, first i want to reach a conclusion to the current subject we 
are discussing.

is that ok?

Those were the days...
    EPO guidelines 1978: "If the contribution to the known art resides
    solely in a computer program then the subject matter is not
    patentable in whatever manner it may be presented in the claims."
