### Re: The Hunting of the Periodic Herschel Conduits

There is this one class on pattern I was wondering if one came across, basically a conduit that does one thing if the signal is "on periodic phase" and another it is "off periodic phase", none of which is blowing out of course. I did manage to get one working example, which is to eat an H on the "on...
