Made it possible for Eryss to include house cusps in the big lists of celestial objects' zodiacal positions, and now Eryss does that by default. Added a related true-or-false config var: $Should_Include_House_Cusps_in_HTML_Celestial_Object_Lists

In "Example Date-Time-Location Prompt with All Command Line Options, Most of Them Set Weirdly", updated the currently-incorrect filename "Eryss 0.1.phpb" to "Eryss.phpb", and changed the web browser shell command to "defaultbrowser" instead of "dillo", since Dillo isn't available by default in Lighthouse 64 Puppy Linux 6.02 Beta 2.

Now, Eryss retrieves all asteroid numbers and names much more quickly by getting them from a cache file in JSON format at: /root/sweph/0000 - Jsonized PHP Array - Asteroid Nums and Names.json

Old updates from 1/12/2021 to files in "Asteroid Search GUI", which still isn't finished yet.

Added config var "Should_Round_Off_Longitude_Speed". When true, the speed gets rounded off to 4 digits after the decimal point.

In Eryss's main HTML output, rearranged the columns to put celestial objects' name/primary Wikipedia link column closer to the zodiacal position column. Somewhat inconveniently, Eryss's JPL, MPC, and secondary Wikipedia links are now further away from the name/primary Wikipedia links - but some of the inconvenience is alleviated by the fact that the primary Wikipedia link's page often contains a JPL or MPC link, and possibly a link to the object's own Wikipedia page, if it has one.

To Eryss's HTML output, added MPC DB (Minor Planet Center database) links, all with the label "&&&".

In "use launcher script instead/Download Ephemerides.php", added a line which changes pipe characters to spaces, just to avoid GtkDialog getting confused by any asteroid names containing pipe characters.

Made the primary Wikipedia links usually go directly to the asteroid's meaning on one of Wikipedia's "meanings of minor planet names" pages.

Added "use launcher script instead/Print Unsaved Ephemerides.phpb", and 4 launcher scripts for it. Similar to the other asteroid lister scripts which output HTML pages, it outputs an HTML page full of links to info about all the not-yet-downloaded ephemerides.

In "Asteroid Search GUI", changed search window filenames containing "Legacy APSK Meadow" to "All Asteroids" instead. Duplicated them and renamed the duplicates since I also want to make search windows for "Saved Asteroids" and "Unsaved Asteroids".

Fixed a recently-added typo which broke everything that uses "use launcher script instead/Download Ephemerides.php".

Added a line which stops the the accidental doubling of some asteroid names by the scripts which generate lists of all the asteroids you have in your "sweph" folder.

Improved the asteroid downloaders and got them working again. I'm not sure, but it's possible that before this update, they still worked in Lucid Puppy Linux 5.2.8 version 004 with Astroblahhh GLMP-GTK or Astroblahhh PH-GTK. But I'm not sure they ever worked before in Lighthouse 64 Puppy Linux 6.02 Beta 2. Now, they do.
