Re: Celestia 1.7.0 Development Thread

@Bordershed I feel a deep sorrow that I must apologize for my compiler. When I moved I also must apologize,,, that I only understood about 1% of your following stuff. The last time I did any compiling Kernighan & Ritchie were in short trousers and windows was a twinkle in you-know-who's eye :) ...

Re: Corrupt sky in Origin add-on

I was just checking, because if it was on a PCI card it would have to be upgraded. Thanks for your checks and everyone's help in understanding the milky way problem, I learned a lot :) It is a thought for the future that I may track down a new PCI for it, meanwhile I have been investigating one of ...

Oh, ah, that is odd, I did a recheck and driver was dated 2006, went to do an update and it said I was up to date. but ...

After a lot of random deleting of folders and files I have narrowed the problem do...
