Delete the AO-10.ATT file. I think it's located in the \sat\database folder
(directory) under the main directory.  Example: C:\Winorbit\sat\database\  I
think it can be updated, or the appropiate lines can be deleted, but since I
don't work this sat, I simply delete it.  This is something that will happen
with ANY install of WinOrbit (even before Y2K)..  I think the expiration
date on the ATT info is sometime early last year..

WinOrbit always displayed a weird date on startup.  Not sure if it was 1899
before Y2K, but it was something odd like 1900, 1800, or maybe it was 1899
