[McIDAS #HYK-859440]: hardware that provides 5V PCI slot in GOES ingester

Hi Matthew,

Sorry for the tardy reply. Your message got buried in my inbox...

Busy, busy, busy...

Mike bought an external box which has 5 volt PCI slots. I am CCing
him on this reply so he can chime in with specifics of the box.

The other option is to build your own PC (or rebuild an existing one) using
a new motherboard that supports high speed processors, etc. AND has at
least one 5V PCI slot. I know that these exist since Mike and I found
one by doing some looking at motherboard manufacturers that we have used
before. Building your own PC requires a small bit of work, but it is
not hard, AND you save a lot of money.

We are running Solaris 10 on the machine we are using to ingest GOES-10
data. It seems to run the SDI code nicely.

Sounds good. I again apologize for the late reply.

No worries.
