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


The ballyhoo workstation froze up over the weekend. NCO is continuing to  
address NAWIPS workstation issues.
The backup ATCF workstation was down over the weekend. NCO was able to  
bring the system back up this morning.
Other items:
The NHC front office will provide an update later today on the various  
security measures that several staff have asked about over the past few  

Building access will remain restricted to the south entrance for the next  
several days.

The upgrade to NHC's bandwidth is tentatively planned for the week of June  
12th. This will increase our connection speed by about a factor of 5 and  
should address the slowness in the download of the GFS and other models.
RFC 233 – 'halo.rexx' v17.2.0 - Delete deprecated "makeKML" subroutine and  
replace with new “MakeActiveKML”. Add “MakeNHCTAFB” to add a message to the  
marine page when TAFB issues a special message tweet. To be implemented on  
May 30 at 1200Z.

RFC 234 - During recent National TCV collaboration testing, the NAWIPS  
software that generates the VTEC and UGC code in the TCV wrote an extra "-"  
in the UGC line between VAZ098 and 099. The extra dash caused the decoder  
that turns the VTEC code into hazard grids for GFE to break. The  
quickest/easiest fix is to post-process the UGC lines by adding sed calls  
to the TCV/preTCV send scripts. To be implemented on May 30 at 1500Z.

RFC 235 – tc_graphics v1.0.8 - Update the tc_graphics package to improve  
the rendering of the experimental Arrival Time of Winds graphics for the  
NHC webpage. To be implemented on May 31 at 1200Z.
