I have put a new addendum for Unidata McIDAS-X 7.8 out that includes the fix for the SFCCON contouring problem that you found. To update your system, please look through (or have Dave B look through) the instructions on updating McIDAS distributions in: Unidata McIDAS-X 7.8 HomePage http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas/780 Hot Topics http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas/780/hottopics.html Information on Addenda to McIDAS-X http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/packages/mcidas/780/mcx/addenda.html The addendum proces is quick and easy, so you can get going with the latest code updates with no pain. >I had been running scripts on getting IR pix..and doing color >manipulations.

First, if the command line you are running is exactly what you sent back, then there is a typo: RTGINI/GE4kIR should be RTGINI/GE4KIR (the 'K' needs to be capitalized). If that is not the problem, then the next thing I would verify is the DATALOC of the machine you are requesting the imagery from: DATALOC LIST -- look for the RTGINI entry. If this looks OK, then run 'DATALOC HOST' to refresh the server name/IP address table information. Next, in either case, switch from using RTGINI to using one of GINICOMP (composite NOAAPORT imagery in GINI format), GINIEAST (GOES-East NOAAPORT imagery in GINI format); or GINIWEST (GOES-West NOAAPORT imagery in GINI format). The reason for this is that by splitting the full set of GINI imagery up into three different data sets, you can point to different servers for the various components. This would help distribute load among the various cooperating servers that are making the data available to the Uniata community. >If I run the command as above wihtout the TIMEOUT it finishes but once >again nothing is displayed. Again, this could be the typo or a munged DATALOC address. >The scripts are running on another machine (picard.cod.edu) and it is >fine. But on weather.cod.edu it fails.
