Expert:  Stevewh replied 2 years ago.
But stay online, because maybe i have some doubt about the symbols used
Expert:  Stevewh replied 2 years ago.
I have a doubt about the symbol used as "s"

All the "s" are "s" indeed or some s is "σ", that´s important

Steve
Expert:  Stevewh replied 2 years ago.
Are you there ?

I am working on this set but please check the symbols "s"

Steve
