A summary of NHC computer operations.




The Spot Forecast Text Formatter is still not working. Jeff will look at
the code on Saturday.

 Jeff says... In the mean time, if a marine incident incident occurs that
needs a spot forecast,  please call up the previous FWSNHC in a text editor
window and change the previous version. The only trick to that is..

1) Use the Spot Forecast request webpage to submit the request.
2) STQNHC will automatically be generated and alarm in AWIPS2.
3) Call up the FWSNHC previous version and change the TAG to match the TAG
in the STQ. Other than that, change the synopsis and forecast at will.

Thus the bottom line is, when doing this manually be sure that the TAG in
your new FWS matches the TAG in the STQ. If not, the FWS that you issue
from the text editor window will not get tied to the website properly.

Derecho is in the process of being upgraded to better hardware.   Martin is
leading the project..

LXB-NHCN does not have "send grids to web" option on AWIPS menu. Mello will


The BONEFISH  box now resides under the printer table in HSU freeing up leg
space.  (We plan to move the remaining NAWIPS boxes over the next month).

  Be sure to validate your webTA  ASAP according to Patty's instructions.
