That is good since it is impossible for us to know exactly how many machines
have McIDAS loaded on them at our university sites.

OK, make of this what you will:

As of July 6, 68 sites had downloaded Unidata McIDAS-X 7.7x from our
passworded FTP site.  If each site was using McIDAS on only one
machine, then the Unidata community would be using about 70 copies (68
+ at least two at the UPC).  Many sites have McIDAS loaded on multiple
workstations; many have only one box.  So, the number of installations
in use could range anywhere from 70 to 150, but I have no way of
knowing the exact number.
