    does easily on a dial-up modem. I seem to have very responsive controls
    what with the dingspumps on the top right, that also gives north. All of a sudden, I'm jonesing for a globe, as I wondered, what's on the other side of the earth from Sydney? You start playing with that control dingspumps and find the answer. You start with sydney, press on one of the directional buttons, and the globe starts heaving in that direction. After pi revolutions, you're there, using any of the 4 buttons. I thought Minsk was the antipode, but it appears to be Kiev. The revolotion through pi from Sydney is shown on the last 2 screendumps.

    As I write, I have an application in my tray that has been orbiting earth along soemthing other than the ecliptic. It's amazing.

    I don't see any of the prior posts, but a good newsgroup reader program
    is Thunderbird. It works almost identical to an email program. And its
    free.

    I observe that I am not the only one who is seeing these posts resurrected
    from 2008. I wonder why all these old posts are reappearing?
