    NASA Breaks Team Geiger Load

    Shawn Wallwork

      Sign of the times, I guess....

       

      Team Geiger put together a great set of chart examples (dozens of them) using 8.0. These are great for paging through to remind yourself the wide variety of chart styles you can accomplish in Tableau. I usually browse through these before I start a viz, just to make sure I'm selecting the best way to visualize my data. [Thanks Team Geiger these are great!]

       

      What does that have to do with NASA? When I opened the Team Geiger workbook this morning I got this error:

       

      Error.png

       

      I was able to click past this and the workbook loaded all the vizzes not using this connection. But when I went to the Alan Smithee blog about Team Geiger I got this error:

       

      Error-2.png

       

      And with this one the viz is completely broken and won't load and display the other data connection vizzes like it does in Desktop. This certainly isn't what I would have expected. On Server a single out of service server breaks the entire workbook? If you want to get at the charts, just download the workbook from this Alan Smithee blog (another great resource) and open it in Desktop. (I've also attached it here.)

       

      Anyway, it looks like NASA left without leaving the servers running. When do the 'cooler heads' show up and fix this stupid Kabuki political charade?

          Shawn,

          Strange the machine is up and running, maybe some services on that server are disabled.

          Regards,

          Cristian.

            Man this workbook brings back memories.  I was on the job 2 weeks when I got put on the team that ended up bringing this thing to life (ergo my contributions were minimal).

             

            I'll ping Alan Smithee and let him know.

              The machine may be up, but I think they are forbidden from serving information...

                I guess this is the part of the conversation where I type "lol" and insert some emoticons... I have updated the workbook according to the new government paradigm:

                enjoy!
