Ouch!  Losing backups is _very_ painful!

I sent you a note earlier today letting you know that you should
now be able to download McIDAS-X from us.

As for a configuration example for LDM/IDD feeds you want/need,
I have a couple of comments:

- Unidata McIDAS comes with a script ('mcxconfig') that is designed
  to be run after the package is built and installed.  'mcxconfig'
  asks questions about what kinds of LDM/IDD-delivered data one wants
  to be able to use in McIDAS, and then it creates LDM pattern-action
  ('pqact.conf') files and provides the entries that one needs
  to include in the ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf file.  It also provides
  a file of cron entries that are needed to scour data and
  some other things.

- if you are also using GEMPAK, it comes with the same sort of
  pattern-action files that are used to create decoded data
  files for use in GEMPAK (in fact, the ones I distribute with
  McIDAS were inspired by the ones in GEMPAK).

- for years, I had SSH access to depresion.dgf.uchile.cl.  If
  you provide access on your new machine, I could login and help
  you setup your LDM and McIDAS again.  Please let me know if
  you are interested in this help.
