Hi Keith,

Phil asked me to access Mann's MBH98 predictors from the ftp server in

Apparently there are 159. However, with no guidance I'm unable to
identify a set of 159 data series from the thousands of files in the
'MBH98' directory structure.

Furthermore, attempts to download the entire directory hierarchy for
examination (it's only about 20Mb in total) have been fraught with
failures - 3 hours on Wednesday afternoon and all this morning, and
still incomplete.

If Steve McIntyre's having the same difficulties, no wonder he's pissed

Anyway I should have a complete file listing this afternoon; we can
look over it then and hopefully identify the predictors.

By the way - what does this have to do with HOLSMEER? *grin*
