Interesting - I have no predict.db file.  I've never seen any mention of it
in the source code, either.  Just to clarify and hopefully resolve my brain fog,
I am referring to KD2BD's version 2.2.1D of predict for DOS, released Nov 4, 2002.
If there is a more recent version not mentioned on his website,  I'd be interested
in obtaining it.  

website I'm referring to -

Or perhaps someone else has taken the source and modded it as I have over the years.
I know the software has much more versatility under Linux,  but right now I'm just
concerned with the latest DOS build.
