Sub-forum is up!

Maybe this is a way for it to beg us to stay.

That won't be the case if the drift is random.

It is not. Certainly would be nice to have though.

@dseagrav

We had a discussion about BuildBot a while back. We could let it post to the IRC channel.
Also the log should be available through Github still.

While I personally would love to maintain a self hosted forum I think realistically that won't be a good idea.
  • We'd need to get a domain name
  • A place to host. (I could do this, but I tend to take my box down for maintenance relatively often)
  • What if the person administrating it disappears
  • It would be yet another obstacle for people to know we are not dead

So moving to the Orbiter forum that already has a solid community sounds like a good plan.
The current forum is blatantly insecure and unstable. It would be very counterproductive to continue using it.
One thing I'd like to be explored is the preservation of posts on this forum before moving/taking this forum down. It would be unfortunate for years of discussion to be lost.

I'm for moving NASSP to the Orbiter forum.

I managed to reproduce this today. I accidentally switched to 100x time acceleration and got a computer restart.
The DSKY was completely unresponsive. I only managed to get a key release and activity light. Had to do a fresh start to get it working again.

After checking out the restart monitor I had both a fixed parity fail and a TC TRAP.
I'm starting to think this might be related to the new ropes with parity bits included that were added a while back.

In regards to the decreased forum activity and the increased traffic on IRC we have started to think about a good way to log the important discussions and make them publicly available.

It's only in its planning stages for now but it is being worked on. I'll post an update when more is known.

I've been playing around with the default meeting plugin that came with Guenter. It seems to do the job pretty well.
There are a couple of things that I'd like to see it do, I might add those myself.

EDIT: Logs are available here: https://vanbeersweb.nl/irclogs/%23nassp/

And just to be sure I tried sending a password reset mail from the forum.
That happily arrived in my inbox.

Someone in the IRC channel offered to help out with the wiki (which we really could use).
Any way to manually get him registered?
He got this error when he tried it himself: "Mailer returned: Failed to connect to prwebmail:25 [SMTP: Failed to connect socket: No route to host (code: -1, response: )] "

SCEA and ECS are merged. Now continuing work in my branch.

Please don't change any CWEA code (even fail conditions) in upstream for the time being. It's a PITA to have to solve the conflicts constantly.
Everything will be added again as the CWEA is being redone, if there's a new system that needs to be hooked up please let me know so I don't forget about it. Happy

Is this happening in fresh scenarios too? I can imagine something in memory might be corrupted causing more issues, even at 1x.

I looked around for a bit but couldn't find anything conclusive as to why this might have happened.

A restart was caused by both TC TRAP and RUPTLOCK (maybe also parity fail, not sure if I go that right).
Next to that the program alarms looked like garbage, nothing close to what's listed by the luminary operation information.

I ran the simulation up to 60x but didn't get a restart, nevertheless the sim lagged like crazy, that can cause restarts (it did for me on Apollo 7 a couple of time).
I'd recommend not going above 10x time acceleration (depending on your pc) when the AGC is operating. If you want to go higher you should put it in standby first.

Also tested the IRC logging a bit: https://vanbeersweb.nl/irclogs/%23nassp/2017-12-26-13%3A22_Untitled-meeting.html

I've never seen such an issue. Can you confirm you are up to date on everything? Latest v8 build from git and Orbiter2016 (either release or beta).

The AGC will not normally display the alarms (I think there are only a few rare occasions where it calls a prio disp). Could you check V05N09E for me as well as the restart monitor on channel 77 with V01N10E 77E? Also what rope does this happen on?
I'm quite surprised by the fact that you're saying that the AGC jumps to a random program. I can't see how that is even possible from a code standpoint, unless your erasable is corrupted in some ridiculous way.

(Also, this is my 100th post here. Time for a party?  Thumbs Up)

Quite funny.

@indy91
Rcflyinghokie and I were having a discussion how the recent changes should be merged back in. We've got 3 subsystems being worked on (CWEA, SCEA and ECS), those will cause quite the merge conflicts when we merge them.
I already cherry-picked your SCEA changes into my own branch so I could start working on letting the CWEA read the SCERAs. We were thinking of merging the ECS back into upstream after which I would merge that into mine and working on integrating the ECS in the CWEA.
After that I would PR the CWEA back into upstream. How does that sound to you?
