    Default ASCOM Platform Earth Rotation Log Files

    Bob, Is there any reason to keep old log files that are updated each week for the Earth rotation data? These log files are located in the "This PC\Documents\ASCOM" folder. I've found years worth of these...

    No. They are there for diagnostic purposes. FYI the new earth rotation distribution system uses a Raspberry Pi here at DC-3 Dreams that grabs the two data files from NASA using their new enhanced login protocol, then puts them on the ascom-standards.org server for the Platform users to get. The server that provides ascom-standards.org has too old 'wget' and they don't want to update it.
