• APOD0304 didn't hatch?

    Hi, I noticed I did not receive the usual Astronomy Picture of the Day APOD0304.ZIP overnight. Did anyone else receive it in FSX_IMGE?

    Thanks for the reply Nigel. I did receive the apod0304.zip file this afternoon, it came through after all, just a few hours later than I expected.

    I have a script converting the Astronomy Picture Of The Day to SIXEL for viewing in Syncterm (or other sixel-supporting terminal) on my BBS, so have been checking it every morning and I panic when it's not updated. :)

    Better late than never.

    I have the same but I just pick up the last image so if I don't have the most recent then it'll display something, at least.
