    I have relied on data from several of the GOES sensors: Proton, X-Ray
    and Electron measurements. On 22 November, GOES 10 was apparently turned
    down for repositioning, as the data was all the known-bogus value of
    - -10000. It looks like it came back to being measured values sometime in
    the  past day, coinciding with arrival at its new 60 West slot. It was
    at 135 West prior to the move.
    Hopefully the set of functional GOES vehicles will stay working until
    2012, which is when GOES O (oh, not zero) is expected to be launched.
