Short note about accessing light curves

Sending this out to subscribers who were missed off the first sending - apologies.
Dear All,
we have now send most of you the instructions how to access light curves on the HOYS server. Please watch the video and follow the instructions. The search radius should be 5" or even smaller.
Over the last few days someone keeps trying to access a light curve using 200" as radius. This queries a too large field and the server runs out of memory. Hence, please stop these attempts and use the small radius. There is no point repeating the request over and over again, it will not work in most fields as there are too many stars. It interferes also with the other processing on the server.
Thanks, Dirk
