You know if you look closely at the video footage for the landing in the link below you can see that the booster moves over slightly after landing.  Maybe you guys should factor that in.

In what is by far the most centered landing yet of any attempt, the winning square is L-22

In the immortal words of Maxwell Smart, "Missed it by that much."  ;D

I can't argue with our most excellent DanielW winning, but would it be agreeable to grant me official "Most Efficient Loser" status for not only being *sooooo* close on the very first pick, but also prophetically stating my method of failure?  8)

Okay, now that I got to hit the center, I suppose I'm committed to hoping for unexpectedly calm seas and winds on landing so I don't miss by a scoot.  ;D

Missed by a scoot, and yes, I can live with that.  ;)

So close, I think I was L-21.

Oh, now don't steal my thunder [rumble of a passing moderately-laden bicycle], now.  You were *way* off at L-20.  ;D

Wrong thread. I'll send a PM but the current thread is the "gotta catch em all" thread.
