Re: Announcement: Java Satellite Ground Station Software Released

	Hi John, I d/l the file run.zip and on my win-95 computer I used
pkunzip to unpack the software and it got a large number of errors wherein
it said "this file has the same name as one already in the directory, and
then aske whether to rplace or not unload the new file.

	Anyhow, with all that problem I doubt It worked right, but one
thing is odd. There are zero .exe files. This makes me think your message
below is a joke. Is it a joke?

	What am I missing?
