FMA workstation problem of some description.

Controller using the backup workstation to upload one file and then going back to his own.

Where is the LCC for Delta?   Is the LC37 blockhouse used anymore?

It is in the DOC (Delta Operations Center) which is located some ways away from the pad. I don't know exactly where it is in relation to the pad but you should be able to trace it back on Google Maps or something.

There appears to be a swapout of weather station (I suppose from where the range officer controls the weather?) going on right now.

It would be great if they did - would eliminate quite a few scrubs...

Sounds like one of the workstations crashed? They must be running Vista... :D

Hold extended.

Holding at T-5. Apparently a minor issue (but they said that about the GN2 issue that caused the last two scrubs...)

Still in the hold.  Working a "what we think is a minor issue".

Good news is they've got a rather lengthy launch window to work with.

"They must be running Vista"....or maybe Windows Millennium??? 
I'll even excitedly look forward to "flags and footprints" and suborbital missions. Just fly...somewhere.

File loading complete, FMA is going to remain on the backup station.

Sounds like they performed the highly technical Ctrl+Alt+Delete contingency procedure.  :)

Is the "technical issue" the workstation problems that they have been discussing or a separate vehicle problem?

I believe it's a separate vehicle-related problem.  Sounds to me like they successfully switched over to a backup workstation.

I think the workstation issue has been resolved, so I'd assume the hold is for the mechanical issue that was mentioned earlier.
