Duh.... I use it every day and am just so used to hitting the enter button
for the 'Now' time I forgot about that. I'm sorry :(

So.... I can't use the new version on my trusty HP200LX <sniff, sniff, tears
falling>. I really like the software, it's lean and mean and quite simple to
use and highly recommend it! 

I'd love to get a copy of the new version when it's available! Keep up the
good work on SpaceNews, it's always a good read.
