CygNet Applied Engineering is pleased to announce the release of the CygNet Depot. This tool was created to simplify interacting with CygNet file storage services.

In addition, you can preview files (Studio screens, PDF documents, Excel spreadsheets, image files) and make in-place edits to text-based files (.txt, .xml, .vbs, etc.) without having to bother with downloading, editing, saving, then uploading.

Playing Battleship with the HSS

July 29, 2015 / 1 comments / in General  / by Walter Goodwater

Scripting in CygNet is great…when it works.

Debugging script issues in Studio (especially without a just-in-time debugger like Microsoft’s Visual Studio) is like a game of Battleship: “Is there a bug at B9? No? OK, let’s try a MsgBox at H2…” And don’t get me started once you have to deal with Nested Views.

But even worse is debugging script issues in the HSS. That’s like playing a game of Battleship while blindfolded, ten miles from your opponent, and you can only make your guesses via Morse code. And did I mention your opponent can move the ships around? It’s enough to make HSS and VBScript (and maybe CygNet for that matter) four-letter words in many a SCADA admin’s vocabulary.

Maybe we can help.
