    haha! I totally had a brain fart. All this is new to I was watching the skillion part..and in other videos you talked about half span which some people write 1/2 Span in their when I got to the skillion part, I read it as (Span 1/2) like "Span half" thinking you meant half span..but you meant Span 1 (span one) / (divided by) 2. haha! whoops.
