Are these the predictions on the AO-27 website, or from my son's Java 
schedule lister?

The URL from which the Java scheduler downloaded the data files used to 
calculate the satellite's state was serving up old files....   I updated the 
scheduler to download from the same URL that the links on the AO-27 page 
point to, so they should match now.  If the times given by the scheduler 
(online or Java version) don't match what the bird is doing, then I can only 
assume that the data files are wrong, even though supposedly up-to-date.

The updated Java lister is available at 
http://sites.google.com/site/ao27satellitescheduler .  The updated version 
also refreshes every 5 seconds now, instead of every 10.
