    Some people had problems in trying to sign up for space station transit
    alerts, so thanks to Ralph McConahy for sending me a diagnostic error that
    seems to have allowed me to fix the problem (as far as some versions of
    Windows were concerned)!
    
    There's also a "simpler" URL that you can use to sign up,
    http://j2ee-consultants.com/TransitAlertSignupBody.jsp if some of the
    whimsical aspects of
    http://iss-transit.sourceforge.net/TransitAlertSignup.html are possibly
    causing you problems.
    
    I still haven't had a chance to get the current version of WorldView
    posted... it's looking like sometime after UTC 5:00 now.  At least one
    person, running Windows XP on a Pentium IV, was having some problems getting
    it to work.
    
    Java (which is quite a different animal from JavaScript) is a "safe"
    language, so the potential for real system-level disaster (particularly as
    compared with a DOS program) isn't there.  Nonetheless, this is still very
    much "beta release" software, which needs more work to make it truly
    functional, accurate, etc.
