OK, sounds good.

Sounds very good.

Yes, there is still a problem, but I think that is one that I created
by improperly identifying /data/goeseast subdirectories with the ADDE
dataset names.  The definitions for GE1KVIS, GE4KIR|39|12 and GE8KWV
are correct, but those for GSN8K* are not.  This is not a result of
your renaming files, but of my making some mistake in UGAGINI.CFG.
What was not obvious to me was the mapping of your directory naming
with what I am used to seeing.

No problem at all.  This is the kind of tinkering that is always needed
when setting things up.

By the way, the ADDE service off of the new cacimbo is nice and
snappy.  It will slow down, however, if/when you start keeping 5 days
of imagery since the server has to look through each image to sort them
into a correct temporal order (the file names mean nothing to the
server).  You might want to consider putting a single day's data into a
particular directory and then keeping 5 days/directories of data
around.  This is what we do on motherlode.ucar.edu (aliased to

Again, if you want, I will quickly jump onto cacimbo and fix my
UGAGINI.CFG mistake(s).  Please let me know (I can do it today if I get
your OK soon enough).
