  • Last week:
    • Able to graph composite (least noisy) data on last plot w/ correct colors
      • As scatter only - need to fix
    • Made small change in how the time period is formatted -> "hh:mm" string instead of integer
    • Made default plot window larger - more easily readable now
    • Fixed formatting so that titles and axis labels don't overlap
    • Attempted to resolve UTC time issue

    • Still to read about sensors/equipment
    • Fix for colormap scatter/plot issue for composite data
    • Next/prev functionality now that I have better understanding of its purpose
    • Make plot and prompt more interactive?


Last week:
  • LUCI
    • Investigation of MCU WebIO for LUCI1. Also created a basic java test example, using the same logic as the LUCI code does to test the new WebIO and it seems to work. The new WebIOs can export the configuration so I will generate a configuration file for each of the 6 WebIOs we have, even though we have only two new ones, but having the configuration files already ready, will be a help. Also I still need to play with it a little bit. Like load it from a DCHP default configuration and then load the configuration, then reset so it can got back to DHCP and load a new configuration if necessary. Document that.
    • B4 vacation: "After uploading new masks in a cabinet exchange, somehow the old masks are still reported. I managed to replicate the problem with a lot of back and forth, trying to replicate the sequence as in the logs. This issue has been there since the beginning. I started developing a solution to it, trying to make it as small as possible." ... still working on this.

  • PIT
    • Created a new script to report on proposals by instrument rather than partner. Specifically PEPSI and LBTI. While at it fixed a couple of bugs/features on the xml2list generation, concerning targets

This week:
  • Safety Training
  • LUCI
    • Finish mask exchange issue.
    • Finish configuration of LUCI WebIO * RPM
    • I'd like to start moving the ball on this.
  • PIT
    • Work with Michelle on new PIT release
    • Work on ways to apply an RPM to it, even though the PIT might not be the best example application but it should be very similar to the OT.
