IMPORTANT SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT - Nov 30 2008

The Upton Skywarn list server will be leaving yahoo groups. This  changeover will be gradual over the next two weeks. I will post which counties (or sub counties) will be moving to the new server.

Short History: When Joe Tomasone ran the server from his house we had three lists: Weather, Skywarn and Coordinators. When I became Regional Skywarn Coordinator my first action was to utilize a full functioned, licensed EMWIN program. We now have 36 weather lists.

There are currently 36 lists.

4 special - skywarn, coordinators, tropical and weather (for all areas of the NWS Upton NY (OKX CWA)
3 state weather lists - All NWS Upton NY CWA Counties NJ, NY, CT
29 zone weather lists - CT 8 lists - NJ 6 lists and NY 15 lists.

EMWIN started at NWS Upton but in recent years has been on a dedicated computer at my house.

Yahoo Groups started out great. It was full featured. But those features seemed to disappear. Chat is gone. E-Mail addresses now require a yahoo ID which was not required when we started there.

Just this week I attempted to add a e-mail address for a computer where I work – a Suffolk county gov e-mail address and discovered that yahoo id’s are required. That made up my mind. It was time to move. After a very short search Bob Schneider KC2CWT Putnam Coordinator offered to help us and he has done an outstanding job. We should all thank him for his efforts.

As stated this will be phased in and “should” be seam-less to the users. All email addresses were transferred over.

As of today (Nov 30) three counties were switched over-These three lists had no users. If there are users which there will be from now on I will also send to that list.

Southnewhaven
Northmiddlesex
Northwestchester

Weather bulletins will be sent from uptonskywarn@optonline.net and will change later. I will let you know the new e-mail address

There are some downsides to this new list-server. No more web interface. I do not know how many utilized it but it is gone. If you logged in to read emails you will have to look elsewhere.

Old list url: http://skywarn.gigdot.net/lists  to be updated soon with new info

If you do not wish to be on any weather list visit
http://okxskywarn.org <http://okxskywarn.org> follow instructions - put 
unsubscribe in subject
and make sure the list name is in the body

To subscribe do as above put put subscribe in subject

If you were a member of a yahoo groups weather list (one or more) you do 
not have to do anything. You will be automatically transferred to the 
new server. Your status automatically changed to sending e-mails - so if you want them to stop you have to unsubscribe to 
each list. If you are unsure e-mail kc2cwt (see okxskywarn.org)

For those actually following this move there is a slight change in the plan. Put Orange in in place of Nassau tomorrow and the reverse on Thursday. The reason is that the Nassau list actually added a member on 12/5 and moved down the list. That member will have to be notified and will have to manually subscribe. More on that tomorrow.

If you have any problems, questions or concerns e-mail either myself or kc2cwt.

Today Thur 12/11/08 the following list are moved to the new server and were
deleted from yahoo groups.

Nassau

Today we start only one group per day and the groups have more subscribers. (if you are playing along with the home version)

As I mentioned previous Nassau added a person on 12/5 which was after the new lists were created.
Message to deerhunter - You will have to subscribe to the Nassau list by visiting http://www.okxskywarn.org   as you were not automatically transferred.

The only question I get is what people should do to get on the new lists and the answer is generally nothing. (with the one exception so far above)

kc2cwt copied all of the users from the old yahoo lists and imported them. The only problem was there were users that had set their preferences to no email or special notices or daily digest. Those three choices are no longer available - so anyone with those settings were changed to receiving all messages. If this affects you or for any other reason you can unsubscribe at any time. 

Lists page at www.okxskywarn.org  has been updated and thanks to kc2cwt - my page at http://skywarn.gigdot.net/lists  will be deleted.

While on subject (shameless plug) http://skywarn.gigdot.net  is still operational (for almost eleven years now) and is being updated. Any input appreciated especially weather related and skywarn material that you would like to see on the page.
