Sure, I'd be happy to send along that fix for the PDS time range indicator of 10 once I straighten it out.  And please let us know of any error messages you encounter or warning messages that don't
make sense.  It's going to take a while to work out all the bugs and issues in taking the code we've used internally on our datasets and generalizing it to work in the broader community.  So we're
definitely looking for feedback.

I was very surprised to see that you received a copy of the met_help email.  So we checked into it and realized that we'd unintentionally added you as someone who would get a copy of every message!
Sorry for cluttering your inbox with all this junk!  We've now removed you from that list.  We're trying to decide how to manage the archive of met_help questions in the future.  We could potentially
make them available as a searchable archive list via the MET website.  As a user, do you have any suggestions?
