Nice smile.gif I have one more feature wish. If you're doing mosaics it can be hard to find all the images that belong to it. Certainly if there are a lot of frames taken at several sols. While browsing the images I want a button that shows all images that were taken at the samen location so I no longer have to pick the frames by hand smile.gif

Most sensible way to do that is to group by sequence number ( P2457 etc. )

I don't seem to be able to download the new OSX version, it apparently does not exist.

Anyone else having the same problem?

Thanks, much better!

Proxy support works well (although .pac support would be nice smile.gif )

I can also confirm that MMB works well on OSX 10.4 (Tiger)

You want me to form a Political Action Committee? Oh... Proxy Auto Configuration. Too bad, I hear the other kind of PACs make money.

FYI, folks, the download link wasn't the only mistake I made the other night. Version 1.0.9 fixes a bug in the new "Check for New Images" feature where if there were new images at JPL the "Update from JPL" button didn't work.

Midnight Mars Browser version 1.1 is now up. From the website: The main new feature for 1.1 is the Sol Information window, which shows the JPL mission update for the Martian day being viewed in the Slideshow. Also new is the ability to download metadata from the Midnight Mars Browser site; this is used to get the information to show in the Sol Information window. The "quick presets" popup menu in the Slideshow Image Criteria dialog has been reorganized to make it more useful.

Hi,


I have been enjoying your program immensely (when working), but often I get this error on certain images which halts the program

I'm running a PC with XP, plenty of memory, Java 5.0. MMB 1.1
It will stick on the same file for days and go no further. Any thoughts??

Hmmm... Are you on a slow network connection, by any chance? My guess is it's taking longer than 45 seconds to download a particular image, and the network timeout (introduced in version 1.0.8) is currently set to 45 seconds. I hadn't figured on this being a problem, but currently, if it can't download an image within 45 seconds, it will abort and try again, up to 3 times, then it will give up. If it can't ever download the image within 45 seconds, you won't be able to get past that. I will add a preferences setting for version 1.1.1 so you can increase the network timeout time, in case it's just taking too long to download an image. Have you used a version prior to 1.0.8, and did you have the problem then?

Thanks for bringing this up.

Actually I'm on a pretty fast cable connection. I've been a user since 1.0.3 and it seems it has always been a problem. I keep hoping the next version will fix it. It does seem to have gotten better. Sometimes it will give up on an image and move on, but occasionally it still gets stuck and stops.

I wish that it would just skip a bad file after a few tries and move on to download the rest. Sounds like you have not seen this before, which has got me wondering about my configuration, but I can't think what it would be.

It seems to me that when it happens, it is on one particular image. When I restart the program and try again, it will stick on the same file again (usually from Exploritorium, I believe?). It will stay that way for a few days, then suddenly a retry will move on and either finish or stick on a different image.

I've tried manually downloading the file in question, but find that even my browser will stick on the same file.

I've copied a different image and given it the same name as the "bad" file, with hopes that it would move on. I believe this used to work in an earlier version, but now it compares the date and tries to replace the file then sticks. (Hmm, I just thought, maybe I could make a dummy file with a newer date, then it might skip it).

Right now, MMB is stuck on this image:

http://nasa.exploratorium.edu/mars/spirit/...FQP2819R4M1.JPG

When I go to that link with my browser, it starts to display the image, but about 2/3 through the download sticks.

Thanks again for your program.
Charlie

Another small clue. My Mozilla Browser and MMB sticks on this link, but Explorer doesn't:

That link didn't seem to come through intact.

No, I haven't noticed any problem like this since the fix I put in for 1.0.8. Before 1.0.8, I would occassionally see the network read operation freeze indefinitely. I still wonder if increasing the new network timeout would do anything for you. Maybe maybe not. Anyway would be something to try, so I'll let you know when 1.1.1 is out.

Don't have any idea at the moment why it would work in Explorer but not Mozilla or MMB, unless there is a different proxy setting involved. Does the link work immediately in Explorer, or is there a delay?

Just downloaded 1.1 for OSX but it appears to be 1.0.9 inside the tar file.

Looks like a packaging error on my part. Rather than repackage it I'm posting version 1.1.1, which is better anyway. I'll make sure the Mac version works...
