  1. I've fixed quite a few bugs and changed the way timestamps are handled, now using JDP Science Common VIs for RFC-3339 You can follow on GitHub

  2. Here's my tuppence. Get an indication from your IT dept when thy expect the issue to be resolved then get your project manager to bill the time against IT's budget. Add to your project plan the time they indicated and add a note that the project delivery date will be be delayed by at least that amount of time. Keep doing that if/when their indicated time expires until they resolve the issue. If you have weekly project meetings, make sure it is in the minutes and get an action on IT to resolve the issue and require status updates from IT so it never drops off the agenda. Ensure the IT issu

  3. I updated the Bug report to mention that this should be in the help. Also, I talk a lot about use cases for the Error Ring (including mentioning several of the points I brought up in this post) in my What To Expect When You're Expecting an Error presentation here: http://bit.ly/dnatterrors

  4. I have reported the documentation issues (both the 'page not found' error, and the suggestion about placing error rings in case structures) to R&D as Bug 1413653. Don't forget you can deselect Visible Items > Error Explanation Text if you need your Error Rings to be more compact:

  5. I reported that in 2018: CAR 605085. I don't think they are planning on fixing it. Must use C strings under the hood.

  6. What a horrendous format TOML is. I won't be using this format unless forced to at knife-point.

  7. That was the PXIe-4844, an optical sensor interrogator. It wasn't just for temperature -- the gratings (microscopic cuts) can measure strain too. It's useful for taking lots of measurements across a long distance with just a single cable (although it was more like ~15 sensors per fiber, not 100), in an intrinsically safe environment, and/or an electrically noisy environment (since the fiber is not affected by noise). $20k was the price of a typical interrogator ~10 years ago. PXIe-4844 was obsoleted because NI exited the market. Other manufacturers are still in it; performance has gone up

  8. As a note, a quick performance test comparing dropping a constant or an error ring in a case and running this over and over doesn't seem show much of a difference in terms of CPU (but benchmarking could probably done more carefully), so I may have just used up bandwidth for not much, as usual... 🙂

  10. That's good advice, which could be added to the Help for the Error Ring, for instance...

  11. I recently ran into an interesting problem: some calculations I was doing in which I used parallelized loops were taking an inordinate amount of time (and consuming 100% of my i9 cores). Turning to profiling to figure out where I might be bugging out or able to find some optimization, I realized that the most active subVI was this: Error Cluster from Error Code.vi There is an interesting discussion elsewhere about why this VI is a nuisance (even in its modernized version), which is compounded by the facts that: - it is randomly used by NI in its code (some error codes are
