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. re: Too bad there are not more hours in the day :-) >No kidding. If you can help me out on that end, it's up to you if you have >the time. But if I'm getting new machines, is it worth it? I think not, >especially since the decoders are fine. 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? Tom
