RE: Upgrading LDM to 6.6.2

Hi Robert,

4. Improved product throughput and less load on my machines. The latest
versions can handle really high volumes.

I am 95% idle most of the time on 4-5 year old machines when I don't have 
generation scripts going.  Of course you are ingesting many times more data 
than I am.  I am sure this would be a help if we had enough bandwidth to 
receive Level II radar data.

Also, I forgot the most important one we've been talking about:

5. Bad date stamps on products. This can be intermittent or full-time. Check your directories. If you see ones with bad dates on need to upgrade.

I run this in a production environment where very high levels of stability
is demanded. Although yes, I do install the bleeding edge stuff, I figure
it is more than worth my time to find bugs and swat them before they hit
production as much as possible.

I think everyone appreciates your testing efforts!

Thanks. :-)

In short...Gilbert tested...mother approved. :-D
LOL! Thanks for the list, I appreciate it very much.  I don't think there is a 
good enough reason for my situation to upgrade and risk trouble, so I'll pass 
right now.

If you aren't bitten by these 6+ bugs, I'd leave it up to Steve to give the final nod. But remember,

6. Older LDM versions that cause problems aren't supported by UNIDATA.
