Fair enough, you get the rating. Your piece is a good one. Being symmetric gives it a versatility that the alternative claimant to the name Falcon (which in deference to your patent I have not used under that name) lacks. Without your Falcon I'd have had to resort to a piece that would take a lot more explaining on the board on which I finally settled. As it happens I have no further plans to use your Falcon but I can see how you, or someone else with your permission, could use it in all sorts of geometries.
