Jim,

Why, it is _so_ obvious.  Anything two years old is hopelessly outdated.

It sounds like you did what was necessary.  Why it didn't work is one
of the reasons I would appreciate a logon.

Yes.

128.117.140.62 or 128.117.140.56

OK, here it is.

Got it.

OK.

Wow!  So, you're _the_ guy that reads the instructions we put together :-O

re: will be around on Wed.

Astronomy and Meteorology go hand in hand.  After, you've got to have
clear skys to view (I used to be in astrophysics myself).

Received OK! I'll talk to Jim. Yeah, I teach both physics and astronomy 
(esp. Celestial Navigation) ... depends on whether you're looking up or 
down in the atmosphere. Grin.
