That awkward moment when you get a call from the Florida EPA.    :horrormirth:

They don't seem to be very busy, for having their state wash out to sea.

To explain the issue poorly: people are scared because europe is saying use gasmasks there after the hurricane took out their measuring tool.

Dumpster dove some Quadro k6000.  Dunno if any work because my damn power supply is short a cable  :argh!:


My luck though is they're actually fried.

Could just be an ity bity resistor? Give us a ring next time, we have all diving certifications.

Oh yeah, for sure it would be overkill and then some.  But for such a small price difference, I thought I'd mention the option.
I for one appreciate knowing that that might be overkilló at least now I know which way is up. its frankly disorienting, this technology is.


Many prospects here.

Last call was about Anderson Cooper.  He isn't on the weather channel.

Best call was the lady complaining about the slutty meteorologist.  Showing shoulders and calves!  And bragging about a PHD!

There is weather, and I am angry.  What are you going to do about that?

Give you more weather!

People are calling tech support thinking we're the weather channel. Again.  Angry, angry people.

This hurricane is fucking weird.  Got big very fast.  Moving kinda slow.



That's really bad, I think.  It gets lots of mass that way, right?

Yeah, that's what i caught from the meteorologists here. The "murder run" was the ecmwf 12z from a day or two ago.  You get the very windy type of hurricanes and the very wet types (forgive me for sounding like the president) , and this one was both and sat on the coast for 3 days in that run.  The meteorologists were geeking out on this one because it has weird measurements all over. 

It lowered severity overnight which is good.  Temp difference between the water and air usually fuels them at night.  Was watching the radar yesterday and it was heading south of where we (well the mets in office) thought it'd hit and now it's north of that.  It took a squiggly path.

The one of the new runs has it bouncing along the coast hitting multiple cities.  So let's hope it doesn't do that and just shakes itself apart.

Things I learned at work.

HUrricane hunter pilot is 83.  We think after he goes it will be drones from that point on. 

A guy wanted all the hurricane paths to show his viewers that Florence wasn't going to hit the US because no hurricane that started in that location since 1851 has hit the US.  All media support folks agreed that he has damned his particular viewing area.

This hurricane is fucking weird.  Got big very fast.  Moving kinda slow.

Someone at work has the ability to write pixels to the radar outputs, initially a way to fix crap data.  But for tests they drew dicks.  And then he learned that can write to all radar products not just our own.  This was years ago, so he's not sure if the exploit is still there.  I have yet to annoy him about some of the more phallic hurricane maps despite them not using radar data at all.

Canadians are very fascinated by this hurricane and very much want to show the forecast we termed the "murder run".

Everyone is using the murder run now anyway, can't be too sure.

While we're trying to keep people's emergency alerts going, some jackass wasted 2 hours of a tech's time trying to get weather alerts to print out on a printer.   Because reasons. Boss told him to tell the guy to fuck himself if he calls tomorrow.
