Public explanation to an emailed question.
Since up to 9 VDM messages can be chained together, there is some confusion as to how many bits can be in an AIS message. Over the radio, you are allowed to have up to 5 slots. See ITU-1371-5: The first slot is short with...

Reading http://lwn.net/Articles/689730/, I wonder how GDAL and related projects do. Certainly is hit and miss.

With recent widespread enhancement of remote tracking technologies, maritime vessel activity is now generating a wealth of “big data.” Machine learning and heuristic-based techniques harness data from Automatic Identification Systems, Vessel Monitoring Systems, Synthetic Aperture Radar, ...

Morning reading about AIS research
This mornings reading: Handling and Analyzing Marine Traffic Data, Masters Thesis by ERIC AHLBERG, JOAKIM DANIELSSON. I hate to be harsh in public, but this thesis is more of a tease than anything else. I was hoping for mor...

#comcast customer service for business class people... pay more and get less. I'm on a bus with internet and it's not okay to get on the phone and try to get these people to do their jobs, which will disturb everyone around me. It's likely that the general comcast network in my neighborhood is having issues. Seriously comcast, WTF? Pay more and get less.

Sadly, business is worse than residential. It's quite the impressive accomplishment.

All ships should have as builts and I wish for the day when there are open designs for research ships (the designer of this ship considers the design very proprietary). The video fly through was designed by a possibly drunken sailor, but it's still very awesome. You can see some fun artifacting that the surveyor should have handled from where there was directly spectral reflection back at the laser scanner where it blinded itself. But, that it is still there makes it easier to estimate some of the stations where the laser scanner was positioned.

This is definitely a fun video about Git. I need to watch it again.
If you are interested in git (and why wouldn't you be?), and you haven't watched this video, you should watch it!

Arg... I gave a talk in 2013 at SIO for the NSF EarthCube program. I don't seem to have the presentation any where handy. Sigh. Perhaps I did it as a ppt/pptx and have since lost it. Boo his. It's not here... http://vislab-ccom.unh.edu/~schwehr/papers/

Okay food. Pretty crowded. Tough when the farmers market is going on out on the street directly outside.

The Kaddo (pumpkin with beef) and the Mantwo were some of the best food we've had in years. We went on a Friday night and recommend reservations as the hostess was overwhelmed.
