I haven't been crunching data for a while now, but since I've been back and able to acquire data to process, I've noticed the "Show Graphics" button is grayed out. Was the GUI model that I've been accustomed to removed, the one that showed different historical data on a 3-D globe?

Thank you

The only models that have graphics to look at anymore, are the hadam3p/hadrm3p models, which have had very few released batches in recent months. The other model types don't have graphics. I don't think it is high on the programmers' priority list to add that feature to the hadcm3s and wah model types.

A lot of things have changed in the last few years, since the work moved out of Oxford uni to external research sites.
This includes new modelling programs, with different objectives, and these programs don't have graphics like the original ones did.

It would be nice if they brought back the screensaver from the "FAMOUS" sub-projects.

We requested it and staff has it listed "to do" but there are many higher priority jobs to do first. (I'd like to see it restored, too.)
