Sorry about the massive slowdown and system unavailability earlier - it was a runaway script which I've now fixed (I think).
Blackeagle now uses a more secure and faster method of updating - please mail me if you spot any problems. That goes for anything by the way - if there's a problem, please feel free to let me know anytime.
Tau is remote controllable but to do it requires a setup worthy of Heath Robinson (Rube Goldberg for you US readers ). It will be possible for the community to get a chance to pan around and so on but I need to do some hacking first and I haven't quite figured out the best way yet.
Please post problems in the appropriate Technical forums - I'll spot them quicker. Or mail me. Don't just drop it into the middle of a chit-chat or sightings post - I might miss it.
