    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.
