            Thanks for looking into this. On a related note we are still
having issues on the East Pacific PC with a screen which comes up with
when we are prompted to run the rainfall program. This has been an ongoing

Martin also wondered whether TSB was receiving our shift logs. We have had
several entries about TAFB issues which seemed to go unnoticed.

*“A society becomes totalitarian when its structure becomes flagrantly
artificial: that is, when its ruling class has lost its function but
succeeds in clinging to power by force or fraud. Such a society, no matter
how long it persists, can never afford to become either tolerant or
intellectually stable…*
