    Like George, I've been "Off watch." But for longer time and for less
    interesting reasons, one of them being that a backhoe took out our telephone
    A lot of good postings. William Noyce's insight, that the problem we were
    discussing on the "It Works" thread takes care of itself, is beautiful. Why
    didn't we see that?!
    I'm sorry now I posted that method of finding SHA meridian, etc. It injects
    the old nautical astronomer's way of thinking into the discussion. It isn't
    needed, and confuses the issue. Arthur and others should forget about SHA
    meridian and put to practice what William has said. That way they will see
    how it works and develop confidence.
    Don't think I have anything to add to what George has said. Glad he pointed
    out that noon is the worst time to get local time.
    Hope the "Artificial Horizon" thread will remain as lively.
