>Here's some of my notes:
>1) It is up to the user at launch time to enter a "Description" that
>end up being the default filename. We will need to instruct our users
>something meaningful like "tbXXXX" where "XXXX" is the last four,
>the serial number
>2) It will be up to the buyers to make the intial "launch" of each
>of probes and to soak them together in order to determine the
>offsets. These offsets are significant (as high as one degree C).
>probes will need to be soaked together again on nearly an annual basis
>check on the offsets. See: lob/DOCKSIDE.jpg
>3) A couple of problems with the Basestation interface routine:
> a) nearly 50% of the time I attempted to make contact
with the probes
> for lauching operation, I needed to
"retry" ... not a big problem
> but something for the users to be aware
> b) The base station connection did NOT work for
my LINUX laptop with VMware
> emulating Win98 but is did work
on my WinNT desktop machine.
> anyone at ONSET had this
problem when using VMware and, if so,
> did they solve it. I need to
solve this problem at some point
> because I would be using my laptop,
of course, in the field.
>4) The Custom Export File option to put time out in "seconds (including
> half sec) did NOT work. The seconds
were all reported as zeros.
>5) The serial number of the probe does NOT get sent to the export
>Shouldn't it? That would make it easier for us in the long run to
kept track of
>which probe was used on what deployment.
