MET_HELP folks,

We had unintentionally been copying Jeff Zielonka on all of the met_help emails, but Lacey fixed the problem this morning.

I wanted to forward Jeff's message below about how it would be nice to a have searchable archive of the met_help questions, with the commonly asked questions discussed somewhere - sounds like a FAQs
page to me.

I wondered why I got an unsubscribe e-mail from the list!  I think a
searchable archive would be very useful, with the most common
questions/problems discussed on the front page.  Personally, I don't
mind getting all of the e-mails, but I don't get that much e-mail at
this account, so maybe that's why.
