Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
--- Craig Mattocks


1. Update on the overhead Lights in the TAFB ops area. William Martinez  
will follow up. The light bulbs are good, but the light fixture over the  
backup desk is bad and needs to be replaced.

2. Update on the security camera display. NHC Administrator Officer Jann  
Perez reports: "We are in the process of upgrading our security system. As  
a result, some of the security monitors will be down until the proper  
connections are made by the contractor. Most of the new cameras are up and  
running. Our downtime should be minimal."
1. ATCF - TSB dataflow expert Monica Bozeman has adjusted the ingest time  
and frequency in the unix crontab entry for the TAFB fixes. The TAFB Dvorak  
fixes are now importing on time.

2. ATCF - The FSU Superensemble arrived several hours late yesterday for  
both Darby and Estelle at 12Z. Senior Hurricane Specialist Mike Brennan  
will contact WeatherPredict Consulting, Inc. to ask what is causing this  

3. N-AWIPS/AWIPS2 - NASA SPoRT microwave imagery stopped coming into  
N-AWIPS at 10Z yesterday, but the problem seemed to have resolved itself by  

4. ATCF - The Pacific ATCF workstation continues to be sluggish at times.  
NCO SysAdmin Brian Maher is continuing to monitor the situation.

5. N-AWIPS/AWIPS-2 - The CPU load bar in the lower left of the display on  
the Atlantic N-AWIPS workstation Ridges has been very high even when the  
forecaster was doing very little work on the machine. Logging out and back  
in had no effect, but there has been a gradual decrease in activity since  
then. If this continues, TSB will submit a Help Desk ticket to NCO.
