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



Hi Kwan,

re:

Excellent!

I had forgotten that part.  Thanks for reminding me.

re:

I just looked at the script that I used to get the data from the
SSEC DataCenter, and it looks like I did (try to) get the SHIPBUOY
MD files.  I then looked at the location where the MD files were/should
have been downloaded and I do not see a gap in SHIPBUOY MD files, at
least, not by name.  When I tried to do a PTLIST listing of a range
of days from AUGUST 2019, I get an error that indicates that not all
of the files in the set have the MD file schema.  My original guess
is that there is/are one or more files that in the set that are not
the correct file type.  This will take time to investigate.

OK.  Thanks for specifying the dates you are interested in.

re:
> Perhaps you still have the Bash script available?

Yes, I still have the script that I used.  Like I said above, troubleshooting
will take some time.

Cheers,

Tom
