It will run on the observer's machine. It will not POST the email, but it  
will create an ascii file that can be mailed later.
At the moment, the windows are designed and there is a window that lets  
you save your name, your skill, a list of five instruments and three sites  
- so you do not have to type in those informations when you create a new  
submission.
Later, it will read the ascii-files that I'll create and that can be ftp'd  
and let you browse all entries.
The program is part of a project I call CAOS (Computer Aided ObServation).  
Besides of making submissions easy, it - at the moment - shows local time,  
UT, JD, siderial time at greenwich and local siderial time.
cu,
Bernhard
