(CAS-7986) Create MS Consistency Validation Tool. IR. Submitted casacore pull request. One reviewer has apparently passed it to another reviewer, so currently in casacore github limbo. Some discussion about allowing msmd to open MSes which are known to be invalid, which I disagree with. It is my opinion that users of APIs should not have to check that the objects that they are operating on are valid, and that imposing such checks on callers is poor software design. IMO, the object being acted upon should be responsible for checking and maintaining its own internal consistency, and for throwing exceptions when it is invalid.
Out sick near 3 days

Friday NAOJ Meeting
Reported recent progress and future plans of CASA developments at ALMA/NRO45m/ASTE/Mopra joint users meetingthis week. Thank you very much Jeff for a presentation file at CUC and Sandra for the help on my HPC questions. EA-ARC hosted CASA tutorial at the meeting and Erik and Rie gave introduction there.
I had a couple of questions about how to run CASA tasks in parallel and when will the parallelized run will be efficient.
a fix to simulator utility according to the change to ia.histogram by Dave. All tests except for m51_tpsim one pass now. m51_tpsim fails due to the change to image statistics.
