P.73 Due to a PDF-rendering error, the chart legend displayed the incorrect colour for the Argon One result. It should be yellow, not green. This has been corrected on the latest PDF.

P.90. Build the Ultimate Magic Mirror. The software installation script in the article no longer exists. Instructions for the new script are located here on GitHub. Thanks to Darren Hill.
