I'll try to get that sorted as soon as I can. Which may be a while what with
I would be quite disappointed if it did work. The 24 x 7 I found a while
back but didn't pursue it. When I say the Dee tables something just clicked.
BTW I am not convinced it was Dee that did it, or even Kelly. Just someone
that had seen the document and maybe wanted to trip up Dee and Kelly and
show them as charlatans. If Dee couldn't see his own handywork in use then
how good was he.
This is however wild speculation, so feel free to ignore it!
