Since this is the third request for clarification that I have received
on "NASA TV" I figured it was time to feed it out to the group ...

NASA TV is the North American NASA site listed at 139.88.27.43 in the
Nicknames list. They periodically show taped programs (That I would
dearly love to hear as well) about topics related to NASA.

An NEC Versa in my case is an NEC Ultra Versa 50Mhz Laptop connected
up via my docking station at work to our internal network and a phone
line at home. In both cases I use the Chameleon TCP/IP package to
"Talk" to the net and have had very few problems except for the
occasional GPF fault on cuseeme caused by trying to get other work
done while watching cuseeme. Can't hardly wait for the "audible"
version of windows to release and would happily be a beta tester (hint
hint).
