The login page is at

I can't test past this page, because the username and password fields cannot 
take my data entry.

I'd be glad you show you around.

I grabbed it a little while ago.  PyEphem shouldn't be hard, either.  
Depending upon how the rest of this week goes, I might take a crack at it by 
the end of the week.

I appreciate the great attitude!  But I will, as a long time Fedora user, also 
see what PARI can do for Fedora. 

I would be willing, for sure, to provide mirror space and bandwidth for an 
Astronomy spin, although I can't commit right now to a full Fedora mirror 
(and the bandwidth usage that entails).  Got 100Mb/s to the Internet and I2, 
and 40+TB of disk.

Well, this one I'll have to admit; I _am_ an IRC newbie.  Never had the need 
before to do IRC; guess I have some stuff to learn. Can't be much more 
difficult than learning how to run a CNews site in 1991 was.....  I've always 
been an e-mail guy, not a chat guy....
