I've written up all the things that I think should be
in the network
interface between the thunder pc (server) and any
other machine and put a
link to it from the tremble links page. Mave needs
this information to help her write
wrapper code from the web interface. I decided
that letting the user associate names with data
stored on the server is a bad idea because it makes
complicated and doesn't give the user any more information
than the time
interval description. From the vis app file menu
the user will select from
a list of time intervals rather than a list of file
names when the user
selects the "open remote file" item.
About all I can claim to have accomplished this past
week is to rough
out the interfaces between the acquisition and analysis
module and the
analysis and file-control/visualization module.
I've been insanely
busy with Walkthrough demos and midterm preparations
and such -- I
suspect we all have similar stories about now.
I got the network interface information from Adam; using
that to write my wrapper code. Other than that, I have been buried
under hurricane 239.
More thunderpc-cs installation and setup.
Our pc, Thunderpc-cs is now installed in Room 360 (The
Thunder Lab). Surprisingly it isn't a 486, but
a P2-300 with 64MB or RAM and a 4.3 GB HD.
So it looks like it will do what we need it to do, yeah!
We got the soundcard and lightning detector. David Harrison
also provided us with a single temporary microphone and preamp so we can
get some idea of the quality of our audio signal.
We got the other mics in; these should be better quality
than the Radio Shack ones.
Next week we plan
on testing the microphones and trying to concoct a weather damping "thing"
around them to minimize the recording of rain.
Small Pitfalls this week:
CCE studying and general work load increased for all
