I was getting worried that nobody at CCNY was aware of the upcoming change.
I'm glad to hear otherwise.

Hmm...  this is odd.

Yes.  I took the liberty of logging onto halo and doing the ldm-mcidas
decoder upgrade.  While I was at it, I upgraded your McIDAS-X
installation to the latest bug fix level.  I did not, however, touch
your LDM installation.

The fix is already in for the imagery decoding and McIDAS-X, so you
don't have to worry about this right now.

I will be making a new release of McIDAS-X available (7.70) "soon", but
I don't think that there is anything in the new release (right now,
anyway; it is still changing) that would mandate that you upgrade to it
before Christmas.

The other thing I did was to change the LDM request for images from
your upstream site so that the old "delta-encoded" ones would no longer
be hitting your machine.  This helps conserve on bandwidth and may be
part of the reason that you can once again see loops (i.e., multiple
images of a kind).

Dear Tom:

Thank you for your continued "beyond the call of duty" support.
