I'll remember next time. Do you think I should edit the Project Journal to reflect this?
This is your project journal that should reflect how you did the work, and if it works out O.K. is doesn't matter. My point is that starting from the center seems to be a bullet proof way to make sure nothing happens. If you want to add that tip to your journal that might be a good idea. If you want another good tip to eliminate a lot of the math and measuring, send me a regular e-mail.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
