  • $\begingroup$ Probably that the question was already answered, only without picture and link. $\endgroup$ – AlexDeLarge Nov 3 '16 at 9:49
  • $\begingroup$ @AlexDeLarge Since I don't think the other answer is very good (neither referenced, nor has it an image) I decided to write another one. And I don't expect it to get better, as it is now four weeks old. $\endgroup$ – Chris Nov 3 '16 at 10:13
