Mass producing half square triangles is a must when you are approaching a complex looking block. Almost all of the time you can breakdown any bock into squares and triangles. I didn't have any problem getting to the website to see the pictorial demo. Try again. Maybe you just had a spike in your internet availability.

When I go to look at the project, it says "Bandwidth Exceeded" I never get that with the other patterns.
