Sounds good. Just to keep you uptodate with fiddling that I have been doing on your machine: I uploaded a new Unidata-Wisconsin datastream image decoder to waldo. The reason was that the version that I had put there previously had a problem that manifested itself in horizontal streaks across images and "speckles" in the outer space portion of visible images. The problem appears to be confined to code compiled with gcc/f2c on Solaris x86. No other platform including Solaris x86 using Sun compilers showed this problem with 'lwtoa3'. I spent close to 4 days trying to find out exactly what was wrong before finally giving up and making a code mod to a McIDAS routine that got around the problem. I am still scratching my head over this... Tom >From address@hidden Fri Jun 18 08:43:58 1999 I had noticed the streaks, just figured it was holes in the data; as to the speckles, hey, I wondered if the sensors were picking up starlight. My assistant has been gone this week, so I am not sure what he did as to rebooting. I do not think waldo was rebooted. The next steps I plan are 1. Re try the connection of our other os2 machines to waldo. We have put them back onto hobbes in light of the slow data transfer. 2. Begin the process of converting to solarisx86 and mcidasx on the pc's that now run os2. I am assuming we can let them get their data from waldo just as they get it from hobbes at present. All comments and suggestions are appreciated. Alan
