    just wanted you all to have a greatlaugh on me.

    Thelast few hours I have used Kolbe LTA to reduce the sights,
    first go took reasonable 40 min, not too bad, BUT, when I looked at the numbers I started scratching my head, I was out by quite a bit on ALL calculated altitudes, out enough to make plotting at reasonable scale impossible.
    whent over numbers again, same thing.
    hmmm, ok turned to computer (navpac 3 HMNAO), same result?
    ok went over numbers again,found the error.
    Drumroll, TaDaaaa, it helps to take down correct year and month, I had written 2012-12-16...
    feel free to laugh.
