    I haven't seen those before either, but I can see potential firewall/fireblocking issues with them.

    Didn't see your post yesterday, spent most of the day at various eye-doctors, ending up at a retinal specialist due to concerns I may have a detached retina (not a good thing), but the ending opinion is 'probably not, but if I see anything changing to call them immediately (they put emphasis on the 'immediately' part), and go back in 2 weeks if nothing further happens so they can check again.

    Thanks, Jerry, and best of luck with the eye issues!

    Yeah, Doc says;
    Take two aspirins and see me when you more money.

    Anyhow, wish you well.

    Looks like regular block instead of L-corners.
