       "Details:  Attempted to access ", top.url, " but did not succeed..."))

I note that if I paste the url into the browser with http and the :9090 removed it works.

Attached is an rNOMADS source that should keep DODS working for now.
I expect things to fail again when NCEP switches to https (DODS is
still http for some reason).  I will be fixing the html parsers to
hopefully avoid this from happening.  Until then, please use this
release for your grib and DODS needs.

At present both my grib and dods vignettes (downloading GFS data and
doing some basic manipulation) are running fine with this version.

Let me know if anything is still not working for you.
