    Hi Antoine -

    Thank you for your generous remarks. I grew up and began doing celestial when a slide rule was the mark of a mook (nerd in today's parlance, I think), so I still lean on the quaint old ways.

    Your previous note referenced Peter and Andres, so I assumed they had had a go at Jeremy's unusual set of sights. He's a real plus for the List.

    Off now to look at your .doc. Thanks for taking the trouble.

    Best,  Hewitt

    BETTER WITH AN ENCLOSURE !!!


    Dear Hewitt,

    You wrote :

    QUOTE

    For some reason your attachment came up scrambled on my Mac (was it doc.x?), so I don't know how this compares with others' results.

    UNQUOTE


    First of all, I will congratulate you since you are such a Sharp Man ! No need actually to crunch hundreds of numbers, no need to spend hours and years on programming while Good Sense People like you can achieve the same result just like what you just did and demonstrated !!!

    Well, you will find here enclosed my attachment (initially attached under the ".docx" format) under the ".doc" format this time.


    And also, which "others' results" are you referring to ? So far, I have only read about yours ... And I would be interested in knowing about such "others results". :-)

    Thank you for your Kind Attention and


    Best Regards


    Kermit

    PS :

    1 - I rarely use the ".doc" format which is such a waste of space ! The enclosed document now takes up 35 K under the ".doc" Format, while under ".docx" it requires half of that (17K), which is far from being a performance per se since under Word 2.0/3.0 (both being unfortunately outdated) it simply requires 3K !

    2 - For those of you who cannot open a ".docx" file, Windows has published a free downloadable "Microsoft Office Compatibility Pack for Word, Excel, and PowerPoint File Formats" , and especially a "FileFormatConverters.exe" program freely available here :

    "http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?familyid=941b3470-3ae9-4aee-8f43-c6bb74cd1466&displaylang=en".

    No worries : it ONLY takes up .... 37 Mb !

    ??? Who ever complained about the waste of space within Windows ???
