SYNOPSIS - A mailing list, technical@sio, has been created for the
benefit of those at SIO who are involved with gear, in a broadly defined
sense, and its application to the task of collecting data and getting it
safely home to become the fodder for science.
BACKGROUND - There is a tremendous amount of technical expertise and
experience here at SIO. There is also a large amount of
compartmentalization of the working groups. It is sometimes difficult to
find out that guy in the next building has solved the problem that is
currently vexing you. In the various early retirement programs SIO lost
some of the key senior technical people who, in addition to their
experience, had a good idea of who on the campus knew what.
PURPOSE - The list is to provide a forum in which information can be
exchanged or broadcast, questions can be asked and answered, and technical
folks can expand their circle of peers for mutual support. While mailing
lists either die for lack of activity or evolve into whatever they are
going to be, let me suggest some random examples of appropriate topics.
- I just found a great source for cargo shipping containers.
- Does anyone know where I can get parts for my 30 year old dead weight tester?
- Who knows which acoustic releases work and which to avoid?
- There's a bongo net in the office I just moved into, does anyone want it?
- Who can I talk to about designing a mooring to mount my instrument?
