Re: Re: Website Request



It is not beyond the realms of possibility that more than one pseudonym could not be assigned to a bird. If the server is Linux/Unix based then one method would be to use symbolic links to point several pseudonyms to the same page but this should also be easily achieved in the HTML code itself. Either way, NORAD catalog number, pre-launch name and OSCAR-nn, ?O-nn, ?Onn designations could all be represented and point to the same information without duplication.
