I guess I really mean prediction software! From the Ubuntu Gnome 
Repository I've got Gnome Predict 'sort of running" It puts me IN the 
right place QF15bt but REPORTS it as QF25bt so I'm a bit suspicious 
about the accuracy. Feel free to put me right.

Anyway, it's on hold for a day or so, the latest assignment from TAFE 
(Tech College) is a "doozy" and will eat a fair bit of playtime. 
Sigh.... never mind, I can see light at the end of the tunnel, hopefully 
its not a train!!!!
