[McIDAS #RHQ-229966]: Missing (/mis-configured?) SHIPBUOY data files



Hi Kwan,

I am well, thanks.  I hope that you are also!

re:

I think that there are two things here:

- the availability of the TEMPSHIP MD files every 10 days was a result of
  the same bug that resulted in the surface MD files being available every
  10 days

  I seem to recall that one of the comments I made when we had exchanges
  about the surface MD files was that I knew about the other MD files
  saving problem, but I was not able to fix them.  I can look up our
  previous exchanges to remind myself of what was said then if it is
  important.

- the contents of the TEMPSHIP MD files is fixed by the SCHEMA that
  is used when they are created

  SSEC created the SCHEMA that is used for the TEMPSHIP data, so I
  simply went with what they provided.

I think that you want to be looking at the SHIPBUOT set.  I can't
recall if it also has the 10 day saving glitch that I noted above,
but I assume that it does/did.

Cheers,

Tom
