OK, I will try to remember to send you a notification as soon as I have
the modifications implemented.

Your setup is probably identical to the one that COMET has right now (but
they are getting all four NOAAPORT channels).  We tap off of their dish
into our own ingestion box (single four-channel board in a PC running
Solaris x86) which has been working extremely well.

The setup at Plymouth State College (a Unisys ingest system) has the images
dumped into a single directory for GOES-East and another one for GOES-West.
They keep about six to eight images of each type online all the time but
were thinking about storing more.  They are doing this on a PC running

Please let me know if you need help in setting up the server.  The
configuration file for my ADDE serves needs to be in the current
working directory of the server if the file is specified as
INFO=GINI.CFG in RESOLV.SRV.  If one completely specifies the location
of the file, it can be anywhere that is readable (e.g.,
INFO=/home/mcidas/mcidas/data/GINI.CFG).  Once you have done one setup
and have gotten the hang of using regular expressions in the configuration
file, subsequent configurations are a snap.
