I think the politically correct expression is now an "it". Even the Royal Navy has stopped calling their ships for she's, now they're just "it". A shame really.

Congratulations Digitalis (Cyrill). . For me your name is easy to remember :) The pictures were excellent. The empty space under one's feet takes one's breath away. -- Cyril
