[McIDAS #HFW-219253]: McIDAS: McGUI Data Plot Time Problem

Hi Mike,

> Hope all is well.

Things are going nicely, thanks.  I am at the AMS conference in Atlanta
at the moment, hence the tardiness of this reply.

Very good.  Apparently you installed a new distribution of McIDAS on
a modern Linux machine?

Is this for surface data, upper air data, or both?

Not really.  The list of times should be generated by contacting the server.

> Suggestions?

The problem might be that the first server you contacted had an abbreviated
list of times available, and those values are now cached.  Please try the


exit MCGUI/McIDAS and restart


- select the client routing table button on the menu (has the icon w/2 monitors)
- click on the type of data that is giving you the problem (e.g., POINT)
- select a different server (like adde.ucar.edu)
- select update
- try your plot again

> Thanks in advance.

Please let me know if this works for you.

I will be traveling back to Colorado later today, so I will be out of touch 
tomorrow morning.
