  THE "WINDS CODE"
Manifestly and quite naturally the winds code should provide for destruction of all code papers inasmuch as the necessity for having any codes whatever of the type outstanding would be precluded by the cutting-off of international communications.
[37] It is thus clear that the alleged winds execute of December 4 was not responsive to the establishing winds code.
Safford's detailed recollection of the winds matter, as set forth in his statement, is in sharp conflict with his indefinite and somewhat nebulous memory as reflected by his testimony and the letters directed to Kramer during December 1943, and January 1944.

  Winds Code - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The "Winds Code" is a confused military intelligence episode relating to the Attack on Pearl Harbor, especially the advance-knowledge debate.
The Winds Code was an instruction from Tokyo to the Japanese embassy in Washington on November 19, 1941.
Concealed within the meteorological reports would be either "East wind rain" or "West wind clear," the first indicating an imminent major breach with the United States, the second a break with the British.

 High Winds
Wind speed usually decreases significantly within 12 hours after landfall.
The inland wind estimates can only be made shortly before landfall when the windfield forecast errors are relatively small.
Estimated sustained winds of 145 mph with gusts in excess of 175 mph devastated portions of central and southern Dade county.

 Pearl Harbor advance-knowledge debate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Superencrypted codes of this sort were widely used and can be considered the state of the art in practical military cryptography of the time.
To make it harder to crack a code item, 'noise' was overlaid into the transmission in the form of additives (from a large table of five-digit numbers) that had no meaning; they were added to each codegroup to obscure the use of code values.
At most, however, that the Winds system was to be implemented only if the communications between Japan and Washington were cut, and they were never out of touch with their embassy prior to the attack, there was not a need for it.

Winds that shift in a counterclockwise direction with time at a given location (e.g.
In storm spotting, a backing wind usually refers to the turning of a south or southwest surface wind with time to a more east or southeasterly direction.
Backing of the surface wind can increase the potential for tornado development by increasing the directional shear at low levels.

 X-ray Emission from Colliding Stellar Winds   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Alongside is a hydrodynamical model of a wind-wind collision, for a case where the winds have near equal momenta.
If the companion wind was weaker the shock arms would bend towards each other (the opening angle of the shock cone would decrease), and with limited spatial resolution a single spiral would be seen.
It is generally agreed that this occurs when the system is viewed through the dense wind of the primary, and agrees remarkably well with colliding wind simulations based on a hydrodynamic model.

The hurricane wind speeds of the Saffir-Simpson Scale, often reported in the media, are measured differently than design wind speeds in today’s model codes.
Code design winds are considered “peak gust” winds, and are based on 3-second measurements.
Wind engineers have found that the peak gusts are about 20-25 percent higher than the wind averaged over that period.

A Category 4 hurricane would have winds between 131 and 155 mph and, on the average, would usually be expected to cause 100 times the damage of the Category 1 storm.
High-rise buildings are also vulnerable to hurricane-force winds, particularly at the higher levels since wind speed tends to increase with height.
The Inland Wind Model, which is now part of the HURREVAC model, can be used by emergency managers to estimate how far inland strong winds extend.

 Sails East NW - Code Zero Sails and Drifters
By definition, the Code Zero sail fits the Whitbread Racing Rules for a spinnaker, but it is designed to go as close to the wind as 35 degrees in very light wind conditions.
A true Code Zero sail can be tricky to use, but we are not constrained by the rules of Whitbread and have designed a well behaving code zero sail for moderate to full displacement boats sailing in winds as light as 3 to 6 knots.
As the wind starts to build, you can leave this code zero sail up to 14 to 18 knots as you fall off to 90 to 100 degrees apparent.

 The Final Secret of Pearl Harbor (Chapter 11. The Winds Code and Its Execute)
THE Winds episode never would have attained the importance which it acquired in the Pearl Harbor story, if it were not for the changes of testimony and other incidents concerning it which developed mainly during the Hewitt Inquiry, and the undue emphasis given to it in the Congressional Investigation — as discussed in this chapter.
As already stated in Chapter 6, the Winds and Hidden Words codes were set up by Tokyo to increase the security of code-destruction messages to ministries and consulates, which were not equipped to handle the Purple code.
The code set up in #2353 was designed for use in a daily Tokyo schedule of high-frequency voice broadcasts, while the code words in #2354 were to be inserted in a daily Tokyo high-frequency schedule, transmitted by key in Morse Code for the benefit of the personnel in Japanese diplomatic and consular posts.

 IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal: Migrating to IBM WebSphere Application Server -- Part 3
By reducing the code to the smallest size possible, the overall complexity of the task is reduced: fewer code artifacts have to be understood, migrated, and tested.
While the pruning of unnecessary code can be effected during migration, it is recommended that such pruning be executed before starting the migration effort.
In a code migration sense, dump and chase is effected by "dumping" the existing code into WebSphere Studio Application Developer and "chasing" and fixing the problems that are reported by the tool.

 Saflex.com - Hurricane Protection - Building Codes and Standards
In hurricane-prone regions, building codes and test standards have been adopted to ensure the integrity of the building envelope during a hurricane.
The South Florida Building Code (SFBC) was the first building code in the United States to mandate windborne debris protection for all new construction (1993).
With the gradual acceptance of this code and the recognized need for wind-borne debris protection, several variations to the original Dade and Broward County code have been developed and adopted by code bodies and propagated by industry organizations.

 The Joel Test: 12 Steps to Better Code - Joel on Software
When you have a bug in your code that you see the first time you try to run it, you will be able to fix it in no time at all, because all the code is still fresh in your mind.
If you find a bug in some code that you wrote a few days ago, it will take you a while to hunt it down, but when you reread the code you wrote, you'll remember everything and you'll be able to fix the bug in a reasonable amount of time.
Once the code is written, the cost of fixing problems is dramatically higher, both emotionally (people hate to throw away code) and in terms of time, so there's resistance to actually fixing the problems.

 Statement Regarding Winds Message
The Winds Message broadcast was forwarded to the Navy Department by TWX (teletypewriter exchange) from the teletype-transmitter in the "Intercept" receiving room at Cheltenham to "WA91," the page-printer located beside the GY Watch Officer's desk, in the Navy Department Communication Intelligence Unit under my command.
The Winds Message broadcast was about 200 words long, with the code words prescribed in Tokyo Circular 2353 appearing in the middle of the message, whereas we had expected to find the code words of Tokyo Circular 2354 in a Morse broadcast.
My final verification of the fact that the Winds Message translation was typed and distributed lies in the fact that about December 15, 1941, I saw a copy of it in the special folder of messages which were being assembled for Admiral Noyes to present to the Roberts Commission.

It's particularly exciting to see how these folks have enhanced their code base using work done by so many other open source projects, code which in turn is now helping those most in need of care receive it.
Final evaluations for Summer of Code are in full swing, and as the program winds down for the year we've been having some great discussions on the mentor's mailing list about lessons learned during the program.
Mentoring requires a wide variety of skills, most of them having nothing to do with the quality of code a mentor writes: good communication habits, providing encouragement, giving constructive criticism in an effective and useful manner, and proactively determining which points that seem glaringly obvious to folks involved with the project are non-intuitive for newcomers.
