    I started this thread and I want to make absolutely sure you understand that
    I'm not complaining. You have a valuable, well-designed site that I use
    quite often. It honestly doesn't matter to me if or when it's fixed. Now
    that I know that the 'hole' exists, I can simply work around it. I always
    double check the time and direction just before a flare and I had always
    assumed that because the flare prediction disappeared that the orbit of the
    satellite had changed enough to invalidate the earlier prediction and as a
    result I didn't go to try and observe it. Now that I know about the 'hole',
    I'm sure I'll be catching a lot more of these.
