Annual Fundraiser: Let's Try This Again

Here is what I posted yesterday in a different thread. The link that accompanied that post proved problematic, so I am going to delete that thread and replace it with this post and a new link: - - - - - - Yes kids, it's that time again: time to raise a few shekels to keep this thing going.

Re: The "Waterstar Summit" - January, 2020

No, Richard, the image you just posted is NOT the same as the "grid" structure in the image I posted from this past weekend. That is something else entirely, but I am not sure what.
