    Hello Jared,
    
    Ok, you got my attention. Tell me more. Is this the same as a "Palm Pilot"?
    I take it that you can load some kind of program into this?  Do you know of
    a website where I can have  look at one of these?
    
    Now I am salivating ;-)
    
    Robert

    look at the Palm. Even the cheapest $100 Palm now has 20? 100? times the
    brains and memory of the Celesticomp. Anything the Celesticomp can do, the
    Palm can do--but it can do a WHOLE lot more. Like give you a free skymap,
    that shows stars and planets according to time and position. And be very
    effective for email if you find a phone line. Or keeping an inventory of all
    the spares on board, and the contact numbers for the makers.

    can be rechargable or a LiOn battery and a 12V ships power adapter for
    little more.

    you what it can do, and the half hour becomes an afternoon or an evening and
    then you start shopping for one.

    won't mess on the rug, waterproof cases and neck straps all readily
    available. 1/3 to 1/5th the price of the Celesticomps, same price if you buy
    a real high end Palm, and boy can any of them make the Celesticomp look like
    a fossil. (A nice fossil, but a fossil.)
