She gave me a heads-up on this in an email yresteday.

>I gave them accounts on windfall with the home

>Mcidas account on windfall is different from what the manual indicates -

No, not really.  The information about what is needed for user accounts
is fully contained in the online McIDAS-X documentation that we maintain
under: http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas/mcx.

>just different enough to get one in trouble. So.....I see two options for

Either is fine by me.  I leave the option open to you.

>One other thing. Did you get my message about RUC-2 decoding?

Yes, I havn't had time to look into this yet; sorry.

>Steve said
>he'd forward it to you, and it's been almost two weeks since I wrote. Just

I just checked.  We received your eamil on January 28.  It is now February
3, so this makes it _one_ week not two.  I realize that when you are in
need that time seems to dilate :-).

>You're the best,

Smoke up the you know what ;-).  Hey, I never got to contradulate you
on the award for your poster session at the AMS conference in Long Beach;

I will be here for the rest of the afternoon (modulo bathroom breaks, of
course), so anytime today would work fine.
