    Re: An experimental Navigation list

    What is this tempest in a teapot about?  The archives (an entity independent
    of Dan) has skipped a beat in the past.  We survived and thrived.
    
    The nav list, by virtue of not having a full-time (paid!) alpha geek to
    watch the server's blinking lights (discounting the the web's
    idiosyncrasies) has probably not caused a member to be lost at sea or has
    his/her hobby interest been inconvenienced to a legally actionable point ;-)
    
    Robert has been good enough to set up a repository for those that are
    willing to use bandwidth to upload or download larger items of mutual
    interest.
    
    As my parents use to to threaten, "You want something to complain about,
    I'll give you something to complain about."  After hurricane Kartina, my ISP
    was up and down for days, has taken an average of three tries to connect
    since then, and until a week or two ago disconnected at will.  Painful when
    you are trying to download Coast Pilot 6/Lake Michigan.  Bullet proof my
    a-s!  And I pay for that.
    
    Thank you to all the "unpaid" folks behind the scenes and
    contributors/mentors that make this a great forum for exchange.  I am not
    against change for the better, but do believe that as human beings change is
    uncomfortable--even for the better.
    
    Now for a real gripe, what's with this? (Rim shot.) 19,000-year moon cycle,
    26,000-year pole-star cycle (could it just be exactly at the axis of
    rotation and stay there?)  And the planets--oy vey.  Who planned that?
    
    I could go on, but the irony of it all is that the yellow box just popped up
    telling me I've been disconnected, so will call it a night and post
    tomorrow.
    
    Bill
