Post #SpaceShipOne CHAT Ready for Launch.   Posted on: Wed Sep 29, 2004 8:41 am
For those who may not have known, #SpaceShipOne channel is again available for those who wish to follow the flights for the X-Prize live. there is another channel called #SS1-FltData that was planned to carry full/live data but instead will just have current info posted there to avoid conflicts with chat in the main channel.

:arrow: The channels are located on the Freenode.net servers ( irc.freenode.net ).
The Channels are:

- #SpaceShipOne - (Primary CHAT channel)
- #SpaceShipOne-overflow - (a 'backup' channel)
- #SS1-FltData - (FltData Info Only)

- #space - General 'space' chat and links to other specific JPL (and other NASA) program's channels (also on Freenode.net). #maestro (Mars Rover/SAP /Maestro software), #cassini, #messenger, etc.

- #xprize - New channel for the yearly followup of the XPrize Discussion.

:!: You can type !launch to see the next scheduled countdown to launch (take-off time) of SS1/WhiteKnight. The time shown primarily is in CENTRAL-Time but the Pacific and GMT times are also shown as a reference. **Pacific-Time is 2 Hours behind Central-Time. (edited: 2 Oct to reflect new command and it's availability)

:!: You can type !weather for the CURRENT weather report from the Mojave Spaceport (KMHV) Weather reports should be reported automatically in the Flight-Data channel (#SS1-FltData) as well. -(NEW! added feature!)

You can also type $news xprize to see the latest links from 'XPrizeNews' RSS feed, $news spacecom for links to Space.com's RSS feed, and $news spacewire for links to SpaceWire's (SpaceRef) RSS feed. Please use the '/query SS1-Info and then type in that private msg area: "news XXXXX" or just "/msg SS1-Info news XXXXX" in your normal channel... so it will not always show in their channel window each time someone want's to see it. I will on occasion do it openly to help those to know of it and to see it in operation. It also will post new/fresh headlines as they arrive.
(edited/Added: to extend the user-interaction capability and knowledge)

:arrow: For XPrizenews news headlines/links, you can type ' $news xprize
:arrow: For Space.com news headlines/links, you can type ' $news spacecom '.
:arrow: For SpaceWire news headlined/links, you can type ' $news spacewire '.

Please remember, these are Professional and Family-Oriented channels so keep off-topic chat (esp during the flights) and abusive language/inappropriate behavior to a minimum.

Hope to see you there....

Post Added new information October 3rd...   Posted on: Mon Oct 04, 2004 12:39 am
Just a note and placeholder. New info was edited into the post above.

Hope to see more in the channel on the 4th of Oct. We had over 3200 unique visits since before the Sep29th (X1) flight but with a peak of 114 at any time. Help us to IMPROVE this value! 8)

See you at the flight...

Pandelirium
