    Thank you very much to Max White who suggested the very 
    credible "Terminal Impact Prediction System" for the 
    particular "TIPS" I was asking about.  Interestingly,
    perhaps, is that Google comes up with nothing at all for 
    that four-word phrase.  (Of course, it will sometime 
    after I send this message.)  
    
    Thank you very much to Mike McCants, who pointed out to
    me that they have had "TIP" items on OIG.  I just had 
    not noticed that, and they don't seem to spell it out 
    anywhere.  There, as on Space-Track, it's related to 
    decays, but I just was curious about what the acronym 
    stands for.
    
    I wonder if some folks thought by "unrelated" I meant
    "off-topic".  
    
    Apparently there was no SeeSat-L Digest 2005 #57.  Ted 
    said that he couldn't find one on the listserv archive 
    (if I understood correctly).  Digest #56 ends with
    
    http://www.satobs.org/seesat/Feb-2005/0110.html
    
    and Digest #58 begins with 
    
    http://www.satobs.org/seesat/Feb-2005/0124.html
    
    In the online archive there are no messages 0116-0119
    -- well, they're empty and not linked from the index
    page.  I blame that sort of thing on cosmic rays.  When
    was that monster explosion from 50,000 light-years away
    detected?  Oh, that was Dec. 27; never mind.
    
    Our weather forecast is for clouds with chances of rain
    every day for the next seven days.
