ar - I was answering your "why" question in edit comment. It's algorithmic. Robot will not like capital letters elsewhere. I don't actually know if it's our script or yours

Otherwise - thanks for recipe! Eventhough he only said "close". Makes sense, all those ingredients I use too, just different ratio, different meals. So, saltier = CA? Hmmm.
