[ldmMcidas #OJB-462098]: Help! Things are not working

Hi Paul,

On the new machine (climate.cod.edu?)???

What user is running the processes that are failing?  This is important
since the "pointing" to servers (via DATALOC) is done on a per-user

I'm logged in right now...

It is hard for me to pinpoint what was/is going on since I don't fully
understand your setup.  I did, however, see one thing that was wrong:

- it looks like someone edited ~mcidas/data/ADDESITE.TXT and inserted
  a hash mark at the beginning of one of the lines in the file

  Presumably this was done thinking that it would comment out the entry.
  As far as I know, there is no comment character that is appropriate
  for ADDESITE.TXT.  Given this, I removed the line completely.

Please check things again to see if my editing change to ADDESITE.TXT has
made any difference and let me know the results.
