 Cathy: Excuse me, but please don't dismiss those of us without laptop
computers in
the field here!!  I plan to observe Leonids, and will not have computer
 access at the time... 
 Pierre: As for myself, chances are that I may not have 
 either phone or computer on the field. I may have to report back my 
 results only when I get back home (or somewhere else), perhaps after a number
 hours on the road.  We all do the best we can.  >>

Hey, I have an idea. If it's clear, why doesn't everyone just go out and
observe the Leonids with out any expectations. Kind of like a suspense movie.
A preliminary report can be given when their  data collection is over like
it's always been.
Just my opinion....
