    Re: Longitude sight, South Pacific, 1864

    Frank, once again I appreciate your posting these scraps and your help in spotting my mistakes.

    These scraps are magic. At first, they seem like random nonsense. Then patterns rises out of the numbers. Colums add up, a result in one area appears somewhere else. Some numbers have time or angle formats, others have familiar values like 20 or 16.

    Your reward for working them is passage on a time-machine. In these South Pacific examples, we travel back more than a hundred and fifty years. And where does this machine put us? Right in the South Pacific. And why are we there? We are looking for a big pile of s**t in the middle of nowhere and hoping no one else finds it first. Almost too funny but it's great.

    Again thanks,

    Ed Popko
