    GSAT-19 - end april or may 2017 launch

    The last TLE for GSAT-19 was of Feb 6 when still drifting and almost at 48°E. No updated TLE since then, which is a sure sign GSAT-19 did a manoeuver and indeed has stopped near 48°E.

    Firefox 57

    Yesterday I gave up resisting, upgraded to 58.0 thereby losing the FireFTP add-on. No more memory leaks (slowing down the PC after a while), so it was much needed. For FTP now using a standalone app called WinSCP, it's almost as simple in use as FireFTP.
