Hi Mark,

You are the fourth person to report this same error at the same time!
Steve E. will dig into the cause when he returns from the AGU meeting
in San Francisco.

This happened to me on a dual Xeon EM64T machine running LDM-6.4.2 
yesterday as well.  The failure went away after I remade the queue
again.  I am getting the feeling that the failures being reported
had something to do with the time!?

Please change all feed requests aimed at thelma.ucar.edu to
idd.unidata.ucar.edu.  'thelma.ucar.edu' is currently an alias for
idd.unidata.ucar.edu we setup when we decommissioned the Sun
SPARC-based thelma several months ago.

I think that the things started working not because of a change
in feed requests, but, rather, because it was later.

>So that's the current state.  Anything I should do from here?

Please change your feed requests back to the way they were before
(changing the machine from 'thelma.ucar.edu' to idd.unidata.ucar.edu)
and let us know if you see any problems.


No worries.  This is a very strange problem indeed.
