Re: [gembud] GEMPAK going away in 3-5 years?

Thanks for the links.  With I imagine thousands of GEMPAK scripts running 
around the world I would imagine I am not the only one a bit nervous, though.

There's a nice presentation on it from late last year.

http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/committees/usercom/2007OctMtg/TuellJune2007Partners.ppt

And one from NCEP presented in the fall:

I don't see the words "going away" in there, I just think that 1) it's an 
unknown entity right now and 2) might be more complex than just downloading a new binary 
so 3) if you want to be sure you can read GEMPAK files in 10 years, you'll be safe with 
IDV.
