    Sounds interesting, but can you translate to English?
    BTW, I tried it again last night (tonight is full on clouds and rain) and I got
    much closer results, but at the end of my sights I shook the mirror box and
    heard water inside it. So perhaps much of the error is due to my usual half-
    assery in construction. I'm going to try to rebuild it with more care and see
    how it works,
