    Robert, you wrote:

    Oh no, not a bit. There have been many practical applications for this
    thesis topic in the past 24 years. Every time I see a black hole floating
    by, I throw some hydrogen in and marvel at the spectral shifts, which, of
    course, exactly match my calculations. ;-)

    "expect a few PMs from me from time to time with physics questions."
    There are quite a few members of NavList with extensive physics knowledge.
    There's me, yes, but also George and others. I seem to recall we even have a
    couple of people who actually do physics for a living. So if you do have a
    physics question, I don't think any harm would be done to announce it here
    and maybe ask people to reply off-list (or not, it's up to you... and the
    patience of other list members).

    This is a truism of online life! Have a look at the photos from the
    Navigation Weekend (fer3.com/Mystic2008). There are a bunch of NavList
    members in the photos, but there are no captions yet. See if you can guess
    who's who. :-)
