Re: Steve Blaising has a computer!

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks. Now all we have to do is get Gene Meeks hooked up. Yeah, that'll happen. Give my regards to Steve, let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

Re: Geodesic Dome grid

According to Gene Meeks and Bob Hirsch, effectively, zero difference in realized output with the fanciest and most beautifully constructed grids.

Univ. of Wisc. claims better focusing with a latitude-longitude banded grid.
