Here is today's summary of NHC computer operations:
Jeff powered down and restarted the cable boxes, which restored the cable
TV connection. This was not an issue with the billing as first suspected.
Mark verified with Patty that the cable bill is paid automatically.
The cumulus, ballyhoo and starfish N-AWIPS workstation continues to work
well since the most recent configuration changes by NCO.
TSB meet with TAFB last Thursday to discuss the NWPS. We will no longer be
able to run that on the sardine server because that was purchased with FEMA
funds and storm surge needs to use it for their development. We worked out
an interim transition plan that Hugh sent to TAFB. For the next few weeks
TAFB will need to use RWPS when available, or late NWPS runs, which will
run on the slower comp02 server. The NWPS is still trying to run on
sardine, but failing so it has not been available at all the last few days.
TSB will work towards disabling the submission to sardine and implementing
in on comp02.
Mark elevated the problem with the floor tiles in the HSU area to Nick
Oliveri from Southern Region. We have been told for more than a month that
this will be addressed, but so far, nothing has happened. The option to
replace the bad tiles with others that are not in the direct walking path
is not viable because the issue is related to the braces that are under the
NHC's bandwidth is tentatively scheduled to be increased from 200 to 1000
mbs on June 20th. There may be a few 5 to 10 min outages during the
transition period, which is scheduled between 15:30 and 17:30 UTC. TSB will
confirm with HSU and TAFB when the schedule is finalized. The plan includes
a go/no-go decision the day before, based on the tropical weather situation.
RFC 236 – 'tafb_tweet.py' v1.1.0, 'tafb_tweet.csh' v1.1.0 - Add a new menu
option to TAFB .fvwm menus on NAWIPS machines. This runs a script that
launches a python gui from the NHC comp server. The gui allows a forecaster
to post a short message that is tweeted on the NHC_TAFB twitter account and
appears on the top of the NHC marine forecast webpage. The functionality
was adapted from existing scripts used by the hurricane specialist unit for
NHC_Pacific. To be implemented on June 6 at 1200Z.
