New FTP Ingest Option

Weather Message 3.0 now has options to automatically ingest the nws ftp files. The first option is to ingest the 3 hour file when the program is first started. The second option is to automatically download the files based on a user selected interval.

The first option to automatically download the 3 hour file when the program starts will help users that do not use the software until a weather event occurs. The second option, just provides a redundant mechanism to download the files.

The option to manually download the ftp files has not changed.
