Shadows of Dominion

Three rounds of Dominion at Chris's this evening. Tom won once, I won once, and we tied once. (Jeff lost thrice and was sad.) Fun! So much replay value in that game.

And yesterday I had lunch with Peter (Frost, formerly Shmalcs), whom I hadn't seen in ages, and we had a great time catching up and eating pho. He's working in solar, and posed me a question about mathematical equations describing power loss due to shadows. I was going to see if I could think of someone at work who knows optics to refer him to, but I think I have figured it out on my own, which is keen. I may post my solution here to let my smart friends double-check my thinking, but I have to figure out whether I can explain it without a diagram. (Or else draw the diagram.)
