Re: ldm feed

My reception of the DDS is also fine, as well as NEXRAD and NMC3. It is
really the HDS and MCIDAS data that I seem to get way behind on. I've
tried playing with different queue sizes and various "rpc.ldmd -o" time
lengths, but I haven't been able to catch up. I'm out of the office this
week on vacation :), I'll have to follow up on this in detail next week.
Thanks for checking your feed out though, I appreciate it!
