  1. A number of links near the bottom of this page are missing. There is text, but no link, to:
    Video Tutorial – Right Handed
    Video Tutorial – Left Handed
    and
    Quarter Till Two Chart

    Since this interesting square is part of an on-going CAL, it would appear those ought to be there.
    Thanks for sharing this square.
