In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, the myUSGS Confluence service is targeted for retirement on January 28, 2022. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience.

Webex Recordings

I made some Webex recordings today (Wed) and have posted them. Hopefully I can edit/split them down later. These are streamed through the webex site so nothing but java should be required to view them.

Sorry, the video didn't take – these are just audio.
