Predict question

I ran a script

wget -qr www.celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/amateur.txt -O amateur.txt
wget -qr www.celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/visual.txt -O visual.txt
wget -qr www.celestrak.com/NORAD/elements/cubesat.txt -O cubesat.txt
/usr/bin/predict -u amateur.txt visual.txt cubesat.txt

But it was only when I stopped the server I had running, and restarted it
that the keps were used.

I had a 5 degree difference between NOVA and predict.

When I restarted predict, then predict matched NOVA.

Is there a way to hit predict on the fly , or does a server re-start have to
be carried out ?
