- IT issue #6395 (MODS naming/print statements as seen in UI). Olga confirmed it was an OT issue not related to MODS.
- MODS data computer high storage warning resolved (Rick Pogge removed some old data under /lhome/data).
- Obtained passwords for MODS computers, need to update the shared password document next.
- Working on AO Cravat web interface code:
- Python code convert from fits to png and then thumbnail. Currently used a combination of astropy tools and own code. Maybe better to produce a single Python code.
- Working on Polymer/JS9 integration, some progress, still needs debugging and tidying things up for a demo.
- Working on MODS wiki documents.
- Working on AFC debug tool. The tool copies AFC subwindow files as they get generated and display them locallly in a python program. The program applies the same logic LUCI does in the backend.
