[McIDAS #NLZ-330654]: request to use McIDAS

Hi Nathan,

Sorry for the tardy reply.  I simply had _too_ many meetings today...

Is it possible that someone in your department (e.g., a system administrator,
etc.) could register with our site and download McIDAS on your behalf?  If not
we can add you to an "exceptions list" (a list of user email addresses) that
are allowed to download McIDAS.  Please see below for some information we would

Please let me know if another at BYU who has a '.edu' email address can do the
download for you.  I suggested a system administrator since a typical McIDAS
installation is made in an account named 'mcidas', and that account would need
to be created by someone with 'root' privilege on the target machine.

In the event that you will eventually be the one to download the package, I will
need you to read and agree to the following terms that have been imposed by SSEC
on us for distribution of McIDAS:

- you are accessing McIDAS from Unidata for use in a university

- McIDAS must be used for academic classroom instruction or academic research
  by students related to obtaining a degree

- your installation of McIDAS is not for use by a government agency, 
  research institute, or private concern

- you agree that you will not re-distribute any portion of the software

I apologize for this formality!
