[time-nuts] Speedy neutrino puzzle solved

I don't know what the experimental setup is.  However if I were to be 
using GPS, I would use the GPS system to get a precise time at each end, 
record the time of the event that should generate the neutrino burst at 
one end precisely to a clock set by GPS and record the arrival time at 
the other end.

The observation from the GPS frame is irrelevant if that way the 
experiment is performed.

I would think the mathematics of GPS timing and calculations would 
already have the relativistic effects factored into constants.  I 
vaguely recall such things in there, but the whole GPS system is 
something hard to retain and recall at this point to find references 
about that.

I read some amount about the calculations in reading a patent some years 
ago which was to try to use a couple of PC's to do the calculations 
among other things, and had an analysis of the time required to do the 
calculations.  I need to find it because there were estimates of how 
long each part of the system calculations took to justify that the 
scheme would work.

I assumed that if one were solving a multi term equation of readings to 
arrive at a spatial value from the timing information that the motion of 
the satellites would have to have had the relativistic effects factored 
in.  So it would not be present in my above description of the experiment.
