Paul,

re: some of your emails are not making it to us

I will touch base with our system admin person to see if we even saw
your other email from yesterday; it did not show up in the support
inbox.  This is probably what happened to the email you sent in
December.

MDXX file 80 should be an NLDN lightning one; 90 should be an hourly
summary wind profiler one, and 100 should be a 6-minute wind profiler
one.  None of these are created by XCD decoders.  Instead, they
are created by the ldm-mcidas decoders nldn2md (NLDN data) and proftomd
(wind profiler data), respectively.  My troubleshooting checklist for
the XCD created files still stands.  If you have no other MDXX files,
there is something amiss with your XCD decoding.

Right.

>I will check with you on the other problem a little later.

OK.

re: missing email
Try resending your questions from yesterday in one email, and a
notification of their being sent in a short other one.  I will
then look at our sendmail log files to see if we got both or one.
