Hi Folks, There seems to be a lot of people wanting to get off this list, is it my aftershave? (he sez, chortling thro' his beard, heh). I've found something that may interest the members of this list. Please note this is not Spam or an advert. A few years ago I discovered a shareware package called Starry Night. This is an astronomy package for Macintosh computers made by a firm called SiennaSoft in Canada, and I fell for it totally. Earlier this year SiennaSoft released their latest version and I had a great time tracking Comet Hale-Bopp with it. Now they are releasing a Windows version of this software, so you 'Bill Gates' fans can play too. After using this stuff for the last eighteen months I have to say I'm well pleased with it and would recommend it to any one with an interest in astronomy. By the way, I'm not being paid by SiennaSoft to post this, I paid for my copy and I've even still got my VISA bill to prove it (but if Siennasoft are reading this and want to send me some goodies... no? Well, can't blame a guy for trying...). I'm just a well satisfied user passing on a recommendation to you guys. If you want to know more about Starry Night check out SiennaSoft's web site at; http://www.siennasoft.com/index.shtml In the mean time, if I don't get online again before we break up here in Derby, have a very good Christmas and a very merry New Year and hope Santa brings us all what we want for Christmas (socks, Doh !!!.....). Have fun! Cheers Folks Andrew.
