That's clever. Planning on using it to record heal levels? That would be useful when the admiral swears we were healing 45 degrees.

Neat idea. You may want to rethink arguing with the Admiral using documented fact, though. :D

Been there. Done that. Got the scars to prove it. :wink:

Please post if you ever succeed in getting the 180 degree indication. :|

Oh we have arguments all the time. She swears we are healing 45 degrees. I often will say "So I'm looking at the meter, what do you think it is?......nope 15degrees"

I don't want to test that one.

As one who engages in the time-honored manly pursuit of "poking the bear", I would say to the Admiral "Think of it like age. It's just a number, right?" :)
The key to inner peace is to admit you have a problem and leave it at that.
