With as much diplomacy as possible.   hmmm,

Thanks so much for your prompt reply.   It is a pleasure to receive
knowledgable mail.   I'm familiar with Zip's son's work as well as the work
of Lois and Astrodienst.   I have a copy of the ACS atlas on my machine.
I guess I should know more about Shanks, but since Pottenger is the better
known of the two, I wasn't aware that it was his work that Pottenger was

The atlas actually seems to be the most problematic portion of programming
astrological dates and I can see the wisdom of Pottenger getting into it at
an early point in time.   Still, this is a hobby for me and I'm looking to
earn money at it (yet).   For now, just seeking my mark.

Thanks again Paul,
