Finishing CryoSat

For the last several years, I've been working on the IPF2 software for Cryosat. Well, I think that I just finished it. Tonight I did a test compile of the final release to fix the problems spotted in the test meeting this week. Everything seems to be fixed. I'll sleep on it, check again and then the next stop is the launch of the satellite this autumn and the start of the commissioning phase.

It looks like Monday will be the first day in over a month upon which I will do no Cryosat related work.

Blogging from Word

Word now has the ability to post to a blog. Why on earth would I want to use it to do so, apart from trying it out this one time?
