I bet this is probably the same view the Aetherian's have from their spaceship :D

Day Hiker: You are totally rocking the house right now! :D

(I tried to embed this video to express my enthusiasm, but I don't know how to do it.)

Actually, I'm one of Nevada's 20%-or-so unemployed. I suppose Vegas may be the wrong place to live for someone who wants to find a job that actually uses one's intelligence.

I want to live here, so I'll settle for something less. But it has to be steady and permanent -- the kind of thing one needs to make monthly house payments and raise a DayHikerJr. Part time is completely fine; it just has to be stable.

Oh no, you didn't!! :lol:

Are you referring to:
1. Resurrecting the Aetherian thread?
2. Joining the Aetherians?
3. Thanking Day Hiker?
Guilty as charged on counts 1 & 3 and on count #2 I plead that I was temporarily in close proximity to the Aetherains this past August as they were gathering on Mt Harwood.
But I haven’t joined….

I'm actually using Visual Basic for Applications, which is part of Microsoft Excel. The worksheets in Excel are used only to store parameters for different projections and other information like that. The actual Excel interface is not used at all for the user input and image generation. My code reads elevation raster data files that I downloaded from USGS. Then it processes the data and writes the image file.
