Hello Dr Jim Bell, I would like to imagine the new header entry for NASA data files. indigenous_lifeforms int(64). Years ago, I wrote to you prior to sitting down and making a file name decoder for MER. You replied, 'go ahead', so I did. It's called MERDAT and I kept going and made it do its thing for Viking, Pathfinder, Phoenix and others. All because you gave me a little inspiration. Thank you Sir. Kevin Forbes VK3UKF.
