Just finishing the text files for recording alternate hours in WMR 11. Last mission I captured about 90% of the mission with a couple nights where the
feed was lost and the software wouldn't reconnect automatically.
The Missus' made sure I was well-stocked for consumables; food (meat), huggies, beverages (diet coke and Mill St. organic), foil hats, welder's
goggles for me and the cat, good glasses, better glasses, magnifying glass, ObusForm... and my paper and pen for writing down times to check the video
for "off-nominal stuff", for what, all things going well on Flight Day Five (FD-5), could turn out to be a 14 day mission.
A bit dodgey that SSPTS power transfer system. It is unknown exactly how it will behave when plugged in to ISS 120V system and converted to STS 28V...
bunch of other little "unknowns" that can't really be tested until they plug it in and see what happens. It "should" work great and serve to
reduce APU consumables on orbit for STS.
No troubles... today. Fingers-crossed.
Lunch and suit up next... Close Out Team is gettin' the White Room ready. Comin' up on 6 hours to nominal launch. Pizza.
BTW: There's no public news from ISS since last week. They are McBusy.
