Incorrect link APOD 31 Jan 05

The > link below the 31 Jan 05 takes the reader back to the 26 Jan 05 APOD as opposed to the 1 Feb 05.

I noticed this last night myself actually but didn't think anything of it since the new one wasn't up yet.

I'll mention it to Dr. Nemiroff at lunch today.

UPDATE: It seems to be fixed now.

And now the > link for 1/2/5 points back to itself. Usually it points to a 404.

I always click on the > link, so that it changes colour. I can use this later if I miss one of the APODs.

I used to also try to peek ahead on the APODs. It must be more than a year since it was changed, but it used to be the case that although 'tomorrow' was always a 404, a date further in the future in the URL would let you peek ahead.

I assume RJN prepares the pics in advance (particularly the weekend ones) and runs a script to rename them at midnight (EST?).

It may have been changed, but the way it is working now is correct behaviour, the latest picture should simply point to itself with the > link.

Today's (2/2/05) points to tomorrow (2/3/05).

Also, in today's text, the word linking to this page: http://www.aip.org/history/electron/ is "elections" not "electrons."

In today's text (3/2/5), the link "SMART-1" is wrong.
