[IDD #LXG-308010]: Request of IDD connection

Hi Luis,

> thanks for the note.

No worries.  Like I said, I was waiting for you to resurrect an IDD node

I am glad that you did.  It helps others better understand your organization.

Larry retired several months ago.  He gave us permission to make changes
on his machine so we can keep the software up to date, and add allows
for downstream sites as we see fit.

Jeff Weber sent an email off to our contact at FNMOC asking to add
an allow for your machine at CICESE.  I don't know if there has been
a response yet, however.

Yes, I thought about you and Antonio while watching the progress of
the storm!

Very good.

Correct.  I am continually hopeful that somehow other institutions
in Mexico will realize the value of getting real-time weather data
through the IDD ** free of charge **, and of the incredibly useful
applications that we distribute and support also ** free of charge ** :-)

> Thanks, again, LMF.

No worries.  Good to hear from you!
