In this book, freely accessible with EUMETSAT's consent by clicking here, I explore the emergence of the IGO from the European Space Agency, and EUMETSAT's adoption of climate monitoring from space within a rewritten international convention. Establishing facilities around Europe was critical to the political strength of the IGO, which has been responsible for Europe's weather satellites since 1986. This is an official history, and EUMETSAT listed those programmes it wished covered.EUMETSAT© 2001, Darmstadt

ELECTROMAGNETIC RADIATIONThe shortest wavelengths are gamma rays. The longest are radio waves, ranging from 100s to 10-thousand centimetres from peak to peak. The distance between peaks of gamma rays are billionths/millionths of centimetres. Between the two extremes lie X-rays, ultra violet, visible, infrared and microwaves.

If you block cookies or deny tracking you will not loose access to content on this website. If you explore the site without blocking cookies or tracking you are accepting that webstats might be collected by other than me who pays to rent space on which I built this site. The stats, which are supposed to be my stats and under my control to switch on or off as I choose, are located here, and are the result of processed raw data http://www.gavaghancommunications.com/stats, and those here are unreliable because once I realised my hosting company had deliberately made difficult my access to and control of my raw data, I made the stats meaningless by randomly removing individual items.
Legally I am demanding my full access (which I had for a decade) and control over my raw data be restored to me.
In the interest of transparency and FAIR PLAY my hosting company/s might like to know that quite a lot of years ago I shared MY raw log data with the Royal Society of London, and one or two others, to whom I was seeking and continue to wish to to sell advertising space to. I presented a little observational collecting exercise to them as justification for any money I might take from them for their adverts against what I create on the space I pay for.
I have not yet had an answer to the question of whether it was Hostopia or Register dot com which took away access to raw log data relating to the Apache server, and ability to switch on and off my webstats as I choose, without consulting them.
The issue to be resolved in my view is a breach of contract by my hosting company which without warning [I mean specifically Register dot com | Web dot com and Hostopia] stole my control to directly switch off or on all webstats relating to my Apache-based website, and stole my access to my raw log data. That information was for a decade a de facto part of the contractual content of what I bought and buy from them for gavaghancommunications.com. The issue is further to a number of other significant non-agreed alterations, made without warning, which have been damaging to the productivity of my business, and time wasting in the extreme. Stealing is a verbal part which implies intent to deprive in perpetuity of my property. I use the word because no-one has said to me "whoops - give us a little time, and we'll sort it out". So it would be very helpful if we could determine ownership of the raw log data and processed stats, then we know whether you are suing me, or I am suing you, or we are negotiating. I allege one decade of use and control of something included from the beginning in the package I bought implies my ownership.
If content providers - particularly that of leading professional journalists providing and editing hard news at the cutting edge of international science journalism (eg ME) -
are to have a business, it cannot be undermined, as mine has been repeatedly, by needless changes foisted without warning, and literally stealing time and business information from the provider of content to websites. Law must be written internationally to prevent tech companies seeking to control what does not belong to them, and which they are not qualified to control. Nor do the tech companies know, nor can they, or should they know for many reasons, what the generator and user of the raw log data (the content provider, commissioner and manager and the coder of the presentation software, file titles and SEO) knows.
The most annoying part of this is that for me to prosper so must my hosting company, and it is beyond my understanding they would not seek to work with rather than against their customers.
But my greatest anger is that it is only since I began reporting from Crown Court - as the bona fide and very competent journalist that I actually am - that either Register or Web dot com volunteered that the actual server provider for the Apache server is Hostopia. And then only after I had explained it could well be Contempt of Court if I could not tell a judge who the judge should contact in the event a story I write endangers life or Court proceedings, and I am unable, because of hosting company incompetence in the matter of server settings, or network problems, or me making a stand on the grounds of freedom of speech, to tell the judge who they are supposed to contact to have copy removed. Tickets open for resolution. I want to be on your side, not against you. If we need tighter legal agreement propose such rather than wafting in and rearranging navigation in a random inexplicable manner that potentially breaches contract.
