ProAIS2

Postby claymore » Mon Aug 22, 2016 7:29 pm

I've read that this piece of software will enable my ais transponderthingumibob to bare its wares on my laptop programme (Maxsea)
Anyone substantiate this?

It will indeed but as a standalone program. It will not run if a program using the AIS is open.

Plug your AIS thingy in then open ProAIS2 to configure it with your MMSI etc. You have RTFM'd, haven't you?

The swear filter will probably stop me from attempting to interpret RTFM - in the language required for a simpleton audience - would you say again please? - over

I'm fairly sure Claymore knows exactly what RTFM stands for. He's a polyglot :!:

What he does in private with consenting adults is entirely up to him (and them)!

In engineering terminology, RTFM is the final and last resort of any fault-finding and repair process only to be considered once all other options have been tried unsuccessfully.
Usually undertaken once the faulty system has been stripped down to base components spread across the bench, some of which turn out to be surplus to requirements once the unit is re-assembled and still works without them.
I have resorted to RTFM once or twice, although avoid it wherever possible.

Aside from his fantasy predilections or whatever, how do we get little triangles into his laptop?
