Matt,

OK, this is good not bad.

No.  The existence of ~mcidas/workdata/MCTABLE.TXT will depend on two
different things:

1) the user 'mcidas' not setting MCTABLE_WRITE before running DATALOC
   for the first time -- this is an mistake --

2) the user 'mcidas' creating MCTABLE.TXT _by hand_ so s/he can have a
   different set of DATALOCs than the one s/he is setting up for
   the non-'mcidas' McIDAS users

re: my attempt to get at storm2.atmos.unca.edu
>Take out the "o" from atmos, it's storm2.atms.unca.edu. Works for me.

OK, my problem.  I am able to ping and ssh to storm2, but I forgot
the 'mcidas' login information, so I am unable to actually logon
and do anything.  Can you give me the McIDAS login info so I can
see for myself what may be causing the DSINFI I BLIZZARD problem?
If yes, send the password to my personal email account,
address@hidden, without specifying the machine or user names
for the logon.

OK, sounds good.

>How do you know Alex?

Alex has been the UNCA contact to Unidata since 1988.  He attended the
first series of workshops that we put on in the spring of that year,
and I was one of the trainers.  It is heartening that virtually all
of the attendees of the first workshop are still actively involved
in Unidata, and I remain friends with them to this date.

>Thanks Tom!

No worries

Tom
