Subject: loadLIGOData a GUI for mDV 
I installed loadLIGOData, a product of my weekend project, in /cvs/cds/caltech/apps/loadLIGOData.
This is a Matlab GUI for getting data from nds servers. It uses a modified version of mDV to retrieve data.
You can choose and download LIGO data into Matlab quickly.
I also wrote a GUI to plot the downloaded data easily.
With this GUI, you can plot multiple channel data in a single figure, which is useful to identify the cause for a lock loss etc.
You can change the time axis labels to UTC or Local time in stead of GPS second.

You can run it by typing loadLIGOData in a terminal of a linux machine.
A brief explanation of how to use it is written here:

At this moment, data from test points cannot be retrieved properly (of course there is no way to go back to the past for test points.
But still we should be able to get data in real time.). I'll try to find a solution.
