[McIDAS #XPS-217546]: Access to mcidas programs and files



Hi Greg,

re:

This likely means that the email address you used to register with
the Unidata website does not end in '.edu' or that the affiliation type
that you specified when you registered did not specify that you are from
an educational institution.  No worries, we can add you to the list
of users allowed access to Unidata McIDAS.  I enabled access for
your registered address address@hidden address.

re:

OK.  Again, it is probably either your email address not being recognized as
being from an '.edu' (e.g., you used a gmail.com email address, etc.) or
the institution type was not educational.

Please give the access another try.  You should now be allowed...

Cheers,

Tom
