20050308: IDD top level relay atm.geo.nsf.gov unavailable

IDD nodes feeding from atm.geo.nsf.gov:

The Internet2 connectivity provided by a laser link at the NSF/ATM
offices in Northern Virginia is not working due to heavy precipitation
in the area.  Networking at NSF/ATM is configured to only allow LDM
feed requests through its Internet2 connection (since their commodity
Internet connection would be consumed by IDD traffic alone), so sites
using atm.geo.nsf.gov as their primary feed site should failover to
their backup(s) as soon as possible.  The toplevel IDD relay at
Unidata, idd.unidata.ucar.edu, may be used as a failover site for all
feeds if your other failover is not availables or is not receiving

atm.geo.nsf.gov's Internet2 connectivity should return automatically as
when the precipition in Northern Virginia abates enough for the laser
link to begin functioning again.

We apologize for the inconvenience...
