Still have probem. Re: ui for single variable stored in mulitple files

I tried to string multiple netcdf files together using ferret
descriptor file, but it failed in LAS. I have a very long time   
series and have to break it into multiple files due to file size
limits of both netcdf and file system. However I do want LAS know
that it is just a single varible.  
I have put my *.des and *.xml files at
and the LAS URL is
What I have done wrong? Could someone please help me to fix this?
In my LAS setup, both *.des and *.xml are in the same directory

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
