Spektr, elsets, elsets, please

I've edited the Status Report excerpt I posted yesterday, by deleting some
material, computing what I believe are the UTC times of the remaining
burns and providing a Spektr elset copied this morning from Dr. TS Kelso's
Celestial BBS (1-334-409-9280).

I don't know how to convert the information given into anticipated elsets
for the two periods between the burns (one only 1/2 an orbit, and thus not
so important).  Would someone else be able to do so, and post them here?
Pretty please?

If it is not already obvious to everyone, visible passes of Mir, some very
spectacular, are occurring over North America over the next few days in
the early morning hours.  I sent an alert to those from the DC area who
have requested such, and will do so for Cleveland and DC as weather and
available data warrant and my health permits.  If you would like to
receive these, just send me e-mail indicating so.  I regret that I will
seldom be able to accommodate routine requests for other areas, but if you
feel a particular need, feel free to ask.

On a related matter, OIG elsets received yesterday had some non-critical
format changes, but those of you with fussy-fussy (and perhaps even not so
fussy-fussy) tracking programs may have problems.  Some of these problems
are acknowledged in the message-of-the-day material you see on login to
OIG.  As OIG feeds other sources, these may migrate downstream.

Cheers.
