Re: More LogSat 5.1 Fun Logsat 5.1 Y2K tweaking

Well....Loading up the Y2K keps after deleting the old ones works as long as
they are
Y2K.  The Nasa site does not yet have new keps for FO-20(Jas1b),FO-29(Jas2),
RS-12/13(Cosmos 2123).  AO-27 however is right on and works correctly thanks
to the Y2K Keps.
I thank all of those who helped out...I didn't want to upgrade a perfect
good computer due to
one non-compliant program.  I will do some more checking around the Leap day
and other times with
these new Keps.  If there are problems I'll put up another posting, if no

                I'll Catch Ya' on the Birds
