Digital Universe Update

First of all, we're using new, more efficient list software to send out
these messages, and as a result, this message is a test of sorts.  If
something doesn't look right at your end, please let us know.

Secondly, we've now implemented an online "Digital Universe" registration
service on our Web site.  If you are receiving this message directly from
us, you are most likely already a registered user.  However, we'd
appreciate it if you could visit our site to verify that the information we
have for you (postal & email addresses) are correct.  This will help to
ensure that we can contact you as new updates to the package are available.

You can access the online registration from our "Digital Universe, Amiga
version" main page, at:

About 3/4 of the way down the page, you'll find a box in which you can type
in your registration number to access or change the information we have on
file about you.  Please note that you will need a forms-capable Web browser
to do so.

Of course, if you happen to change addresses at some point in the future,
we'd appreciate it if you could update your information at our site so that
we remain in contact.

And finally, we've placed a UOF file with updated orbital elements for
Comet Hale-Bopp at our site.  You can place this file into your
DU:data/orbits subdirectory to use "Digital Universe" to track what may be
the comet of a lifetime.  The file is available from our DU support page at

or can be downloaded directly at

Please keep in mind that comets are very unpredictable objects, and the
magnitudes predicted by DU should only be taken as a rough guide.  
Hopefully the show turns out as spectacular as some think it might.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to
contact us at
