Fw: TLE Availability Update #10

I received this message from Dr. T.S. Kelso of the Celestrak website.


> After a week without any new data from the NASA/GSFC OIG web site, the 
> following notice was posted there today:
> The OIG web site has encountered severe technical difficulties which
> cannot be overcome.  The OIG web site will continue to run a once per day 
> update
> of TLEs. Real time updates cannot be done.  Please go to the Space-Track 
> web
> site for real time data.  The OIG site will be permanently disabled on 
> 3/31/05.
> If other problems are encountered to render the site useless, a notice 
> will be
> posted to the Space-Track web site. 02/11/2005
> It would appear that the promise of a 90-day transition period promised on 
> the OIG web site a month ago is now in jeopardy, despite everything NASA 
> has done this week to attempt to restore their site. All users are 
> strongly encouraged to register on the Space Track web site as soon as 
> possible and to look to CelesTrak on Monday for alternative applications 
> to make accessing your Space Track account easier and more reliable. - TS
