    Hear, Hear. I had exactly the same thought until I recognized the name. I
    agree we should all be aware of how we "Subject" posts so they do not end up
    summarily discarded in the "Deleted Items" file.

    | Gordon,
    | I have no reply to the posting you made, but I would like to comment on
    your
    | email addressing.  The subject (Re: any interest) almost went completely
    by
    | me, along with the other 150 spam messages I get daily. I happened to
    notice
    | your name as a prior contributor to the list. I suggest to all members
    that
    | a subject containing an eye catching word like "navigation, or celestial,
    | etc" be used.
    |
    | Ken Gebhart
