Hi Gilbert,

Sounds reasonable.

>I upgraded the LDM-McIDAS decoders a few months ago, so that should be

>weather3.admin.niu.edu). I'll take you up on your offer for a quick

I upgraded weather2 a little while ago.  I will look at weather after
I see that all is well on weather2.

The upgrade required that I do three thing:

- download, unpack, build, and install v2003; the installation was
  done while the LDM was stopped

- adjust entries in ~mcidas/data/LSSERVE.BAT to incorporate new dataset
  entries in the CIMSS, RTPTSRC, and RTWXTEXT groups; make these
  mods active using the McIDAS BATCH command from the ~mcidas/workdata
  directory:

  batch.k LSSERVE.BAT

- rerun the XCD setup scripts to create the rapid access files fo the
  new ETA and GFS MOS data (also run from the ~mcidas/workdata directory):

  batch.k XCD.BAT
  batch.k XCDDEC.BAT

- adjust the entries in ~ldm/decoders/mcscour.sh; added the scouring of
  the new MD files produced for ETA and GFS MOS output

The same things will need to be done on weather if it is also running
XCD decoders.

>Thanks for any and all help!

No worries.

Tom,

Further complication!

I just got my 2 computers and network switch in THIS MORNING. I am heading 
for Germany November 1-10. Yikes! Ah, timing is everything, but I want to 
get one of the new ones up as weather3 before I go, at least get started 
on it. Stay tuned...
