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


The cumulus workstation did not come up after a reboot this morning. Dave  
worked with NCO to bring it back up, which required having NCO reload the  
video drivers. However, it was very unstable when it came back up. Dave  
worked more with NCO and it turns out that reloading the drivers caused the  
system to revert to 24 bit, which was inconsistent with the the 8 bit  
configuration. That was changed back to 8 bit and cumulus is stable again.

Issues remain on other TAFB workstations. We are continuing to work with  
NCO on those. Remember that you can call the SDM during off hours if you  
have a problem that is interfering with your ability to generate products.  
Also, the HSU backup desk is still available if needed.

Other items:
Dave modified the GFS processing so that the NAWIPS files are generated  
locally. The GFS now now arrives 20 to 80 min earlier, depending on the  
forecast cycle. We will keep this new capability even after NCO upgrades  
our WAN speed in late May.
