    "I think this is worthy of a pause. Frank Reed was wrong?!  Not that he would not (and obviously did) recognize it. It is just that in the 10 years or so of being on this forum (not calling it “the list”, Frank) I have NEVER seen any evidence of Frank being wrong. He is mortal. And the world is right again."

    Mortal? Bah! I'm an Olympian sort of immortal --we make mistakes but learn from them! Ha ha ha (I made the world wrong again).

    Alas, we are all mortal, including corporate entities like NavList itself. I gave up last year on persuading everyone to stop referring to this "community" as a mailing list (as "the list"). Can't teach old dogs new tricks and all that, but more importantly, there are no new dogs and the old dogs are running out of new topics to discuss. The way things are going right now, NavList message traffic by the end of 2018 will probably be lower than it has been since 2003, fifteen long years ago and dating back to before I was even a member of the group. I encourage any and all of you to continue spreading the word about the NavList community since it remains the definitive, world's best online community for celestial navigation discussions. Let's breathe some life into it.
