The AO-27 site has been down for about 2 weeks.  I e-mailed Mike Wyrick, but 
haven't heard anything back yet.

The Java scheduler app will always be accurate to within 2 minutes (the 
cumulative error in the satellite's clock) as long as a new schedule hasn't been 
uploaded to the bird itself.  I have also asked Mike to let me know if a new 
schedule is uploaded before the website is back up.

Inasmuch as one cannot download the required data files for the Java app until 
the website is back up, I have placed the most recent files (May 2011) on the 
Java scheduler download page
