    After a week of testing and feedback by the registered users, I'm pleased to 
    announce that all of the known Y2K issues have been addressed in Satellite 
    Hunting version 2.0.1. You can access both the "New Users" and "Upgrade" 
    download versions at...

    Recently, I've noticed that the IE5 browser is translating certain TLE files 
    during the download. The problem shows up as UNIX formatting when loading the 
    files. In order to combat this, I've written a search/replace into Satellite 
    Hunting's TLE loading process. What this means for the user, is that UNIX 
    formatted files (whether intentional, or not) are now supported by Satellite 
    Hunting. During the file load, Satellite Hunting will translate UNIX 
    formatted files (Line Feed), to DOS (Carriage Return & Line Feed). 
    
    If you are intentionally working with UNIX files and wish to retain the 
    formatting, be sure to work from a copy when loading UNIX files into 
    Satellite Hunting (the loaded file will be resaved with CR/LF formatting). I 
    will be working to make this process more sophisticated and I welcome your 
    input as to what sort of method/controls/etc. you would like to see 
    implemented.
    
    Regards,
