Looks like this URL:

is the one no longer managed. I've replaced it in the Logbook, as well as in DM780 with this checkin:

Hopefully, the issue is addressed. The repro steps tell me to look for something that's not happening, which guarantees that I won't see it.

I've also tracked down this URL at the same site:

which seems to have been replaced by this one:

so I've replaced that in the applications, too.

Note that both URLs are used by both DM780 and Logbook.

I can't understand what you're saying, Ferry. Is this fixed, or not?

Partial... the 30 Day Solar cycle is fixed
But the Solar Cycle Progression is still broken (maybe you want a separate Mantis for that?)

You should provide repro steps. Your repro steps should explain what you're doing, what you expect to see, and what you see instead. Without that information, I don't know what to investigate.

This is what I see. It does not look right.

"Does not look right" doesn't help me much. Can you please be more specific? What do you specifically expect to see, and what do you actually see? How are they different?

The new URL is here:
The old URL is here:

Can you tell me how the data at these resources is different?

OK, I've got it sorted. There's HRD utility code that gets a web page -- but doesn't work with FTP URLs. I've reverted to the old URL until I have the time to write code to get a file over FTP. Hopefully, NOAA won't quit publishing the HTTP page any time soon.

Fixed with this checkin
