Re: (IAAC) Changing the long name for IAAC?



>Will this have any impact on our personal web-based posting forms?
Thanks for mentioning that, William! Yes, if you have entered a list
of your own "default" values for the Enter Log form, and saved it as
a bookmark, you would need to update that bookmark in your browser!
(William, you are such a frequent contributor, you would definitely
want to do the following! But as with any aspects of our IAAC list,
if any of you encountered problems, I could of course try to help.)
For example, let's say that you had created a bookmark with the URL
shown below, to contain all your "usual" values for observing site,
telescope used, magnifications used, filters, etc, etc. (You could
actually try following this link, if your mailer doesn't chop this
URL up into multiple lines! But really it's just an illustration.)

You would have to go in to your "Bookmark Properties" Editor (or to
"Organize Favorites" if you use Internet Explorer), and change the
URL above instead to be:

Clear skies, and thanks for the feedback, William!
