"To err is human--and to blame it on a computer is even more so." - Robert Orben
Minor changes have been made to the website in the last month. Mostly to keep info current, or change a generic picture of auxies to one of local flotilla members. I still need a picture of a "regatta patrol" to replace a generic picture on the site. I have very few pictures from 2008, and would like enough to have a "2008 photo album" at the end of the year. (Thank you to those that have been sending me these.)
I have begun including Unit Summary data in the IT report, and have mailed out Individual Annual Summaries for fiscal year 2007. If you did not receive one, let me know.
You might note that I do not have "30 day total hits" for this month. This feature was not working for a few days on the commercial server hosting our site, and had to be re-set. It was beyond my control, but it looks like it has been corrected. I will monitor this issue to see if it becomes a trend.
. As of 03/17/08 the new site is 14 months old, and it's pages have been viewed over 11,123 times. Our webpages hold 1852.7 Mega Bytes (just short of 2 Gigabytes!) of information, not counting the other pages and websites contained in the links on our site.
We have 82 hours of operations time in 11 patrols for March 2008, which is up from this time last year (37 hours in 6 patrols) and also surpasses the 17 hours in 5 patrols of last month. (Keep in mind, we had two less days in February to do it in, than last month.) These statistics, and more, in the Unit Summary report links. The Unit Summary also has statistics on misc hours, RBS, Public Education, VSC's and etc....
There are no current or pending tickets on the help desk. Tech Support is standing by for anyone in the flotilla with technology issues or problems by calling 504-905-1274 at reasonable hours or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org at any hour. Iíll get back to you and help resolve the issue as soon as possible.
Although I keep saying "anyone in the flotilla", the Help Desk is also available to assist members of other national and local emergency response agencies that the flotilla considers affiliated with our organization, or our organization's missions and purposes.
We have noticed that a lot of password and userID issues that users are having result from the number "one", a capital "i" or a lower case "L" all the look the same: a vertical bar. (l). This happens a lot in autogenerated temporary passwords. I have found that the best way to deal with this is to copy and paste the password so no matter what the character is, it will be entered correctly - and with much less frustration.
Just one more thought: All of the people involved in the IT department and the databases are just like you, a volunteer. We make no claims at being error free and appreciate all the proof reading you can do.
