  That is kewl. I've been using a less-than-optimal position for my panel for
about a month now, and it's "enough". I've started noticing "imperfect" surfaces
capable of contributing to a grid everywhere I ride, lately <grin>. A cheap,
less efficient crystal could just be slapped up all over the face of a highrise
and dump whatever it makes into the local grid. Neat stuff.
