GCN Follow-up

On March 26, 2009, Newcastle Observatory joined NASA's Gamma Ray Burst Coordinates Network (GCN) to perform follow-up optical astrometric (postional) and photometric observations of gamma ray bursts (GRBs).

Voice Agent Disabled in ACP

ACP unexpectedly crashed last night.  After a bit of sleuthing of my OS event logs I found out that something went amiss with tv_enua, the TrueVoice text-to-speech engine. Something in it faulted and took ACP down with it (this was confirmed by Bob Denny at DC-3 Dreams).  I liked hearing Merlin give little status reports about an ACP running plan, but not at the expense of an ACP crash.  Sorry Merlin, but you gotta go.
