There is indeed life outside our hobby.  Paul purchased "this old house" in 
Bermuda, and while not busy with the day-to-day of his (quite illustrious) 
career, spends time fixing cisterns and bringing the house up to date.

I have been a user of The Station software for years.  I use it under both 
Windows 95 and Windows 98.  It works just fine.  Of course I have a wish 
list I would like to see Paul implement in the next release, but I am 
perfectly willing to patiently use the software for what it is; the best 
analog Doppler correction/tracking software available.

Paul has never made any money on this effort, instead contributing all 
funds garnered to AMSAT NA.

Rest assured Paul is listening.  I'm sure he feels a little offended by the 
recent dialogue here.

As with all things in life, gather all facts on a subject before you make 
bold statements that might be injurious to others.
