Hi Paul,

re: contact information for getting access to SATEPS ADDE servers

>Thanks, Tom!!!

No worries.  While at the NPOESS training workshop held at COMET last
week, I pushed hard for free and open remote access to satellite image
data (geostationary and polar orbiting) for the educational and
research community.  My comments were well received but I think
that opening up access will take quite a bit of effort.  FYI, I
am working with the head of User Training at EUMETSAT to try and get
access to Meteosat opened for the education/research community.  This
will likely be a long hard battle given EUMETSAT's long standing
data policies.

I send out Unidata McIDAS configured to _not_ decode model data by
default.  The reason for this is twofold:

- folks wanting to model data analysis typically want to use GEMPAK
- model output decoding in McIDAS results in HUGE GRID files since
  the "decoded" fields are stored uncompressed

Hmm...  I have no quick advice on what may be wrong there.  I believe
that I had access to an FSU machine at some point.  If I still have
the access information, would you like me to take a look around?

Cheers,

Tom
