    Yes, I had the same thing happen here. I thought I'd gotten by without a y2k
    problem with Mr Orbit. Before 12/31 it would predict fine into 2000. But
    after the roll over elesets from 2000 give bogus rsults.
    Ive tried afew of the free prediction programs, and none compare to Mr Orbit
    Its simple to use, and you can use it without studying the readme file.
    After trying the others, I miss Mr Orbit.
    I just downloaded SatHunt 201 & will try that in afew days. I'll let you
    know how that works out.
    Heavens-Above is great, but the elesets can be old, and thats a problem with
    some objects.
    If Heavens-Above updated elesets every other day we could sure live wth
    Cloudy in Arkansas, hope it clears up and we can have a good Shuttle pass!
    cul - Jim
