GenBank flat files

Dear GCGers:
     Does anyone know what happened to the file  old.gbcu.flat.Z  which
used to be on the NCBI server, in the directory  /genbank/daily  and which
seems to have disappeared since the most recent release?  This file
contained the data acquired between the previous release and the cutoff
date for the new release.  We have been reformatting  gbcu.flat.Z  to get
a "GB_New" database, but also, in the interval between a release and the
reception of the corresponding CD-ROM from GCG, we have depended on
old.gbcu.flat.Z  which we put in a bank "GB_Temp", in order to avoid a
"hole" of two months of data.  The only alternative is to suspend our
weekly updates every two months (when  old.gbcu.flat.Z  suddenly
becomes smaller due to the new release) until the CD-ROM arrives.
