Is it just me, or did data stop at 2003-12-01 00:14:52.684?

Folks,

Douglas Deans will be joining me as a moderator of the group, so
just occasionally you may see requests from him steering group
discussions that have become lost. He will also be monitoring
messages from new members so that we can keep the group as clear of
spam messages as possible!

Many thanks to Douglas for offering his assistance.

Re: First segments of Meteosat 5 appearing here

David J Taylor GM8ARV 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 🇪🇺
 

Thanks for that. Met-5 visible segment order is still very
erractic. Very often segments appear to be missing and 90 minutes
later when all other FSD images are in, the missing segments are
then sent, very often involving a "manual" save. Having said that
since Met-5 started I have not been aware of any segment loss on FSD
in the 14 hours or so I take data.

Ian, I've reported this problem to Eumetsat, and they are doing
something about it.

In a way, I was slightly surprised as we'd been through the same
problem so many times before, but it's obviously a matter of fine
tuning the system. The LRIT channel is (I think) very full now,
with the derived semi-real-time products vying with the real-time
image data. I wonder what priority people would put on FSD vs. IODC
vs. Met products vs. relayed data!

I was also surprised not to see any data for the 0000 slot.

Still nothing heard about Internet access tests - I know that there
are people without DVB kit who would love to have the LRIT data....

Cheers,
David

I agree -- again David has us up and running with something new on

although I save all my images as png, Met 5 is saving as jpg.

Re: Animator problem

Roger Mawhinney <roger@...>
 

Alan,
I've seen similar to this many times. For example, my ADSL router has a
DHCP server function which will give out IP addresses if I let it. These can
conflict with static addresses on the PCs. Make sure that you have disabled
all DHCP servers (routers, PCs and servers) and that all PCs have their own
IP addresses on the same subnet
OR
set all PCs to obtain IP addresses via DHCP and let the DHCP server dish out
the IP addresses.

Personally, on a small network, I prefer static IP addresses. DHCP uses
timed leases and the new IP address issued to a PC (especially if it has not
been logged on for a while) can be different to that previous. Mixed DHCP
and Static IP addresses can be a nightmare if not properly controlled.

Also, make sure that NETBEUI and IPX/SPX protocols are removed from all PCs
and that the TCP/IP subnet masks match on all PCs.

Contact me off list if you need more advice.
Roger

Re: Animator problem / Win XP

yes Alan, I know what you mean !

I've upgraded several machine from Win XP to Win 2k to get stability

XP appears, at times, to be "too" intelligent and/or goes for a walk by itself in the woods to pick bluebells ........

/nostalgia:on
and nothing comes close to "proper" dedicated servers - at work I had a Novell SFT-III server - ran for almost three years without a reboot (1022 days in fact) - and it would have kept on longer only we had to stop it as due to a prolonged power outage UPS was running out

Douglas,
Yes it is black. It is white with the messages while the images are
loaded and the animation is being done, then it changes to black, but
instead of the animation appearing, it stays black. Occasionally, it will
work OK, but only as long as the next update, when it stays black after
the
update.

Best regards - Alan

That's interesting. I once had a similar problem with the animation going
black inexplicably. Eventually I had to do the following.
Go into the folder with the saved avi animation files (5 off) and delete
them all. Start again with the new animations and see what happens.
Perhaps you have already tried that in which case my apologies.
Do hope you find the problem.

Regards
Douglas.
