Yes Sean it does and sounds good - thank you. When I have written some introduction 
text to AGPS and tested to stream some GPS data - I will ask a little
more ;)

Jeff, no problem, LTO stands for "long-term orbit" and is a forecast for
the GPS satellite positions (AFAIK). Because this aberrations and the
technique are a bit confusing I'm planing to write a little more about
this, with a small glossary ;)

BTW questions like yours are good and IMHO very welcome
- but could you please so kind and take the time to avoid 
a useless 100 lines "full quote"?
