Thankfully I was able to get my own allocation via NCI startup account!
@DamienIrving @captainceramic was wondering if you could provide some more examples for vistrails workflows? I'm a bit stuck trying to plot solar radiation fields in Australia. Also, I don't seem to have "Timeslice" as an option (as in the tutorial)

@nickengerer The tutorial is a little dated. In the utilities menu there's a module called Crop which you can use to crop your data along a time or spatial axis.
With respect to examples, the cwsl-workflows repository has a bunch of them. Try warm_water_volume.vt or aus_mean_tas.vt as an example

@nickengerer Yep, any workflow from VisTrails can be saved as a .vt file so we've dumped a bunch of them in that repository

@DamienIrving appears I don't yet have access to /short/, so can't store data, the trials of a new user - having this arranged. Will add that to my list of the 'learning curve

@nickengerer By default you have 66GB storage in /local, so that should be enough to play around (be aware that /local is scratch space, so it will be deleted when you shut down the virtual machine)

@DamienIrving hmmm don't see a /local/dl0/ (my project dl0) - is there where you meant for me to look?

Does /local exist? I think you can just dump stuff in there

@DamienIrving no it doesn't, tried creating a dummy file and moving it there - will just wait for the /short/ access - its already being processed. Thanks for your help!

No problem. Since I stopped working on the CWSLab project I actually no longer have access, so unfortunately I can't check these things out
