Yes, but simpler, with only 1 "chimney" in the center. After lots of 3D head
scratching, I found a way to make it from 3 simple layers of foamboard, IIRC,
an inboard layer with a gap at the top, and 2 vertical foamboard strips inside
that to support the mesh... I can't recall the organizer geometry, but the
result was too thick for the windows I had in mind, so I tossed the sketches.

I did a first cut at a simple thermal shade that now acts as both a thermal
shade and a thermosyphon solar air collector.

I'm a bit undecided on how much (if any) merit the concept has. It does seem
like under some circumstances it could be a benefit, and its pretty easy to do.
Comments (either way) would be welcome.
Also has a picture of the new Onset pendant style solar intensity logger -- a
pretty interesting $0 gadget.
