I never said I was an expert! Ionly said I was a retired hardware / software engineer.
A "fits" file? ....... There; thats better.
FITS : Flexible Image Transport System.
Now there is widely used protocol! Do you know where to get more of the "fits" files? I noticed it has been implemented in my current "favorite
language" (well ... the one I use most) C#, and a lace I may be able to get the libraries.
So ... if the insurance companies, print shops, banks, etc. can "ste off" just a wee bit, I'll build something that will allow me (us) to look a bit
deeper into the data. Prolly take 6 - 8 weeks though considering my schedule
By the way, next time you want to "link data"; please insure it is in something more than machine readable form.
And, when you wish to criticize someone for "being expert"; kindly include your own credentials.
I don't know what your qualifications are in any given subject, however, my bservation is; that while you do provide good input in a great many cases.
You always seem to push (perhaps a bit too hard) a main stream scientific view. In many case it does work, and well. In others it makes you seem a bit
overbearing, and condescending.
ETA: Phage, thanks for this additional information. While I will continue to be a pain in your A$$ on some things, I do want to thank you for helping
to clear this up. I do not agree with nor condone the engineering practices employed, but, that is nothing new (I've had many a discussion over the
relative merits of differing engineering approaches for some 40 years. so its nothing new )
