    Hello Forum friends,

    Please feel encouraged to accept an invitation to my web site at

    "Mars Time" is a timekeeper for sites on Mars in particular for
    current rover missions and is also capable of computing ephemerides
    as observed from both Earth and Mars vantages. The application also
    displays rover mission times on the Today Screen and provides access
    to a complete surface map of Mars etc, etc.

    Mars Time is VGA-aware and employs agraham's superb webbrowser.dll
    for the purpose of embedding flash files created by NASA.

    For a reason which I can't disclose right now I cannot disclose the source.
    Anyway, another demonstration of the powerful bulldozer called Basic4ppc.

    Looks great.
    BTW, how did you implement this feature:

    Hallo Robert,

    Pretty nice application, I like your good looking and well ordered user interfaces.
    Unfortunately I will not really take advantage of your program because astronomy is not my prefered subject.

    But anyway very good job, congratulations.

    Best regards

    Thanks a lot for your kind words.
    Your interfaces are top notch, too :)

    No problem about astronomy, Klaus.
    It's a very specific field while the audience is rather small.
    Anyway, the sky must be fantastic over your place.

    I also wrote two GPS apps, a text editor and a device viewer,
    but I feel most attracted by space. I have saved my algorithms
    in a module allowing me to quickly put together almost any kind
    of astronomy software, thanks to Basic4ppc, especially with the
    lastest version that can force QVGA for VGA devices, thereby
    simplifying and speeding up graphical representation of data.

    Aber wem sage ich das ;)
