Thanks a ton Greg. It is crashing here too. I am not sure as to the
cause. I made a small patch to place on top of yours. There is a typo
that outputs the sun position as DOG instead of DEG. Here it is:
--- sun.bas.orig 2013-06-17 11:51:00.000000000 -0700
+++ sun.bas 2013-06-17 11:44:06.000000000 -0700
