I am leaving it under support-idd for now...

How did you have the processing setup?  What I mean is how many pqacts
were you running in order to try and write the data to disk?

You will need a lot of disk to do that.  Also, it would be wise to do
the processing on a machine that is _not_ relaying data.

Just a quick comment: McIDAS ADDE does not (yet) serve the Level II data.

We can't advise you to submit or not submit an Egrant proposal.  I can
confidently tell you, however, that if you do not submit a proposal,
then you will definitely not get funded :-)

No worries.
