Hi Gilbert,

re: /etc/services entries that disappeared
>> I do. They disappeared when you upgraded the OS.
>Ooh. I did that...when? Yikes! :-(

This is one of the prices one pays for being on the bleeding edge of
Linux OS installs ;-)

re: It is a still good idea to have the LDM entry in /etc/services.
>OK, I will add those back.

OK, good.

I tend to agree with you as long as the new machine(s) will be in place
in the next month.  If that schedule slips to 3-4 months, I would
strongly recommend upgrading.

re: changing the equipment to be purchased on the Unidata equipment grant
>OK. Who would I have to talk to at UNIDATA to make that happen?

You're talking to him :-)

The overriding principle here is that you can alter the list of
equipment you proposed -- as long as what you purchase still allows you
to fulfill your proposed objectives.  A couple of quick examples of
changes that wouldn't fit, for instance, are you deciding to not buy a
new server because you want to buy an overhead projector or some
commercial piece of software that does not help you fulfill your
proposed endeavor.  Fair enough?
