Brian UNCC was fairly active at one time when Mike Dross was handling the machines there. To get data via the internet, you can install the LDM and request a feed. You should also be on the lookout for the Unidata equipment grants announcement on our home page (the deadline is Feb 27th to submit a proposal for an award). Start at my.unidata.ucar.edu and see the equipment grant announcement. Then follow the Software tab to obtain the LDM and follow the installation instructions including the current LDM installation information: http://my.unidata.ucar.edu/content/software/ldm/ldm-6.0.14/ And requesting a data feed: http://my.unidata.ucar.edu/content/software/ldm/ldm-6.0.14/basics/configuring.html For more innformation on the data types available, see the "Data" link from the my.unidata.ucar.edu web site. As always, our support email address is: address@hidden should you need help! Steve Chiswell On Fri, 2004-02-20 at 11:21, Bob Rozumalski wrote: > > Hey Brian, > > Time to contact UNIDATA.
