23 EMu Users Group a.k.a. Weekly Therapy - started meetings at go-live - topic du jour as a kick off - then open season on issues - driven by users' experiences Specimens

24 Some Miscellaneous Statistics 1,200,000 Argus records => 2,100,000 EMu records 3 days for Argus server to spit out the final migration files 12 days for EMu server to ingest the final migration files held a final migration race between the KE & YPM servers lost few weeks to Vancouver server hiccups, office move, etc.

56 JP2 - coding find imagedir –name *.jp2 –mtime -2 –print loop on the matches and test to see which recently loaded JP2 files are missing a thumbnail JPG, or which JP2 files have been modified more recently than their existing thumbnail JPG ; then build filenames for any qualifying target JPGs ; execute script several times per hour from cron jasper –f match –F tempfile convert tempfile –resize 90x90 target
