    In common with many others, I have received a copy of Frank Reed's latest test posting.
    Clearly, there are many Nav-l members waiting for news out there.
    So far, I have received neither of the two items "posted missing", referred to previously.
    One was the first posting in a thread "compass card with more than 360 
    degrees"; the other with threadname "compute sun's position".
    Of course there may be others I have missed; if so, I am unlikely to find out.
    I have requested investigation into what are clearly serious distribution 
    problems at Nav-l. I have provided Dan Hogan with header
    information for a message that took 4 months to get from the webkahuna host to 
    my ISP (1 of 16). But there has been no response, so
    The good ship "Nav-l" continues to take on water, clearly holed below the 
    waterline. Her captain appears reluctant to leave the poop
    and go below into the hold to investigate the damage, denying that there's anything amiss.
    I have to admit, somewhat reluctantly, that Frank may be right. It may make 
    sense to jump ship, into the vessel that he has
    provided; imperfect though those arrangements may be.
