Basically, you’re going to drop confetti in one area; the pieces are uniformly cut. Then, you watch where it goes. And you film that. You go one section over, and you drop it; one section over and you drop it. And you bring it out to the 50 and you map it all the way back. We’ll certainly keep that to ourselves after we find that out, but I’m not certain we’ll do that either.
