 ===== AIPS number ===== ===== AIPS number =====
 Since all data resides in your own directories, the aips number asked at startup is something you can choose yourself. You don't have to coordinate your user number with others or with system management. Note that number 0 is special, used by aips startup and some internal tasks. Since all data resides in your own directories, the aips number asked at startup is something you can choose yourself.

 +===== Running AIPS in a virtual desktop session =====
 +When running aips in a virtual desktop such as a VNC session (or X2GO, RDP or OpenOnDemand), special care has to be taken to get the TV server and message server to display locally. In this case, start aips using:
 +  aips TV=local
 +(basically, this prevents aips guessing the computer you logged in to, and trying to connect back to that machine to start the tv (and tek) servers there (which will fail).
