  1. Thank you for the heads-up. I may be able to make it. Some of that hardware just may still have my finger prints on it. Ben "Ex-DEC-ie with an attitude"
  2. Please include more info to help us help you. Feel free to post in your native tongue if English is an issue. Ben
  3. I use it when the app warrents it. Generally exposing an ODBC to the outside world, the DB auto logging and retrieval are the main motivators. Upgrades have been areal pain the ... I have DSC apps that started as BridgeVIEW and the labor involve in keeping it up to date is very costly. New version of DSC LOOK similar to the older versions but I get the impresion the developers of the newer versions had little knowlege of how the old stuff worked. The last time I actually chose to use DSC was when I had to do logging from PLC's since that is fully auto once set-up. DSC used to be great. Recently it feels like DSC is the red-headded step-child. Ben
  4. ...and for my next trick I will perform a vacation.

  5. In this scenario he would have to disable on the PLC. Also cntradicted by observation OK after moving to another NIC. Ben
  6. I recently chased a TCP issue under LV 8.6 and came away beliveing that 10Hz is about the best I can expect out of Windows. Since its OK on another NIC I would expect the other network traffic is getting in the way and tying up the TCP stack and not acking the packet. I found a lot of info posted by gamers trying to reduce Lag so searching on Lag and speed will get you some good hits. This link http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb726981.aspx gives you the internals of the TCP stack under windows and if there anything that can be tweaked its in there. If you find something out please share so we can benefit. Ben
  7. what I like about Herman is, he strikes me as being real.

  8. You maybe able to hack a bit. Use extra plots (two ?) with one filled to plus and the other to negative. Only include values for the range where you want the fill. Or you could insert an image into the plot and use the picture control to fill what you want. There is a shipping example that is a graph based on a picture. So no ready built solution but there are possibilties. Ben
  9. Prep for yet another road trip but this time Spain. LV is everywhere!

  10. That is close to my style as well (exception: I avoid wiring through the top/bottom of structures since it is not well defined if those tunnels are input or output) but the point I want to highlight now is the label allignments. It would be nice if the labels of source are to the left and outputs on the right. Ben
  11. A return visit from Oliva but Grandma was out. Again with the ball gown but I had to decline when Olivia suggested I wear the Snow White outfit. I do have limits.

  12. Last night Grandma and Olivia dressed up in gowns and danced in the library. It dont get any better.

  13. I will sometimes turn them on for types as well but usually they are off. Where I would love to see the icon in when you colapse a library in the hiarchy view. THat would useful. Ben
  14. I get an extra visit from the grandaughter this evening. Blocks books and pounding nails scheduled.

  15. We teach most of the LV course for the DC area. You asemble the students and I'll get you the teacher (well not me but our training coordinator) Ben
  16. Heading back to face the Jabberwocky. Hope to galump back soon.

  17. Love the idea but... the noob. Now they fumble around to wire a ref to the loop and get it wired through the tunnel to something. The VI is runnable. A noob that does itafte rhte change will have a broken VI because the SR on the output side are un-wired. I can handle it but it would complicate the noobs. My 2 cents, Ben
  18. I keep the auto-populate off in the projects I start and the dirty dot is alomost always due to changes that need saved. When I open project from others that do use the auto-populate, I often see the dirty dot and the message you reported. Now back to my non-autopopulate.... I had an XControl that always triggered the dirty dot. A similar XControl in one of NI's toolkits (maybe sound and vibration) did similar. THat is all I can share. Ben
  19. Same here. Her philosophy made me think (a good thing) but I would have loved to sit down and talk to her about some other things. I was driven to finish it as soon as possible. Customers were inviting me out to dinner and I was declining telling them I wanted to get back to reading "to find out what is going to happen tomorow". I have about a 10,000 page backlog of reading piled up but AS is gong to get another read. Ben
  20. Getting back on the road to visit an old customer. Feels like going down hill both ways.

  21. If you are using a Waveform Data type then right click and CHECK "ignore attributes". Ben
  22. Kuod/rep points are of fixed value they are worth today what they were worth yesterday. THe DJIA is valued in dollars which does fluctuate. One way that I de-couple the DJIA from the dollar is to look at the dow/Gold ratio which "typically" runs between 10-8 (Goolge dow to Gold ratio it is a standrd approach and the history is really quite telling, you can see where the US switched from longe term bonds to short term). Event with the Fed reserves attempt to quensh the price of gold it is still holding its own (only thing that made monet last quarter) it is still holding strong. When mentioning the current pull-back of gold my wife (rather than freaking) replied "We just don't hve any more cash to but any right now!" Any wonder why she is my better half? Ben
  23. And for even more bumps... an adventure in emptiness... experiment with a 2d array passed to nested For loops and then experiment with the difference between a 0 X 2 aray and a 2 X 0 array. I changed my mind three times trying to decide if I was looking at a bug. Ben
  24. On the road. Suspect I will not run into CRELF.
