Observation data, configuration and state

It is possible to use an arbitrary directory to store observation data. J-Bird uses the directory specified by the Java system property, if that property has been set. To set the property, you must edit the J-Bird launch scripts and set the property in commands in which Java is invoked. For example, such a command might begin with

	java"/home/me/miscdata/J-BirdData" ...
