    Re: Why do we ocean navigators defer to 249 when 229 isbetter?

    Went to the website reference, celstialtools, etc.  and it directed me to a mirror site to download the installer, sadly when I tried to run the installer this is what my anti-virus told me: 

    Adware Generic_r AVG detects this highly active Adware and its 338 known variants.

    Therefore, despite Celestialtools guaranteeing the download to be virus and malware free, it isn't, or did they imply that you got a free virus and malware if you downloaded it? 

    It is sad what malicious and evil people there are out in cyberspace who just ruin a nice download experience for those of us looking to learn and expand our knowledgebase.  This is why I still love the book and the printed word. 

    Books can mildew and warp, but they won't crash your boat's electrics or electonics.
