20011126: RE: archive

I guess I thought Tom was talking about a permanent backup, but the needdata
list is certainly a good place to go.  At NSBF I use the ftp.ncep.noaa.gov
to just go out and get the AVN/MRF because we usually miss at least part
of the model run due to reclass messages.

Hi Robert and Tom,

Another option might be to send a message to the <needdata@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

email list.  The members of that list are quite responsive.  If you are not
member of the list, you can subscribe at:
