    If you both do it voluntarily probably ten times as much! (as many of you
    are mathematically inclined you will have not trouble figuring that one out
    ;-)
    
    Congratulations to all concerned.   Maybe time to give thought to how to
    celebrate the 10th (a get-together somewhere with quite reliably good skies
    maybe for those able to travel?)
    
    This post gives some interesting background to the list's inception:
    
    http://satobs.org/seesat/Jan-1995/0022.html
    
    Looking back over the archives I notice one of the earliest posts is an item
    concerning MIR tumbling,
    
    Someone else had problems with Seesat-l being confused with Seesat numeral 1
    (must have been fixed by using an upper case L.)
    
    It was also suggested that the list should be changed to Satsee to avoid the
    impression that it was a list concerning the Seasat satellite.
    
    Maybe those responsible for the list might have more stories to tell about
    its inception , early events etc?
    
    (And by the way we have some clear skies here- viewing has been almost
    impossible over the last  month or two owing to variable cloud- which
    usually has cleared at daytime if at all!)
