Ok,

I'm calling on the encyclopaedic knowledge of this forum Big grin

I remember watching a youtube video that someone had posted on this forum, I cant remember who as it was years ago. Many many years ago.
I have googled and searched on youtube, to no avail.

The video was relating to the complexities of simulators, and how a real time racing simulator is more awkward than any non realtime simulation.
There was also talk (IIRC) that because cars have 4 wheels (unless ive been driving it!) it becomes much more difficult than if there were only 3 wheels.
The video was an interview with a chap who (IIRC) was a maths or physics professor working for microsoft and it was quite along video lasting about 45 minutes.

I have had many heated debates with people and have mentioned things I saw in this video and been told i was talking "hogwash" as i've never been able to produce a link to it.

If anyone knows the video I'm referring to, please can you provide a link. It was fascinating and like to be able to watch it again and show some of the naysayers who think that we can get perfect simulations "as PC's are so powerful these days". I'd like to be able to point them at the video and let them listen to the words of someone who knows whats really involved in simulating a car and tyres.

Thanks guys I'm counting on you!

For the love of god... even at christmas its just bitching and griping about "LFS being dead" and the DEVs aren't interested anymore.
Give it a rest, as has been stated numerous times, S3 will be released when it is ready and not before.
Scawen is in no way obliged to post anything just because it is christmas, he doesnt have to update anyone and tell anyone what he has been doing.
Be patient, and if you cant be patient find another forum to bitch and gripe on, it's getting boring to read all the negative posts constantly.

Oh yeah merry Christmas...

Hey Franky,

from what i can tell looks like ns1 and ns2 are both unreachable, coupled with the reports of gameservers down I think it maybe the router. I guess ns1 and ns2 are using the same router, you mentioned on a previous post in this thread that there were 2 routes out of the network.
It would be better if ns1 used one router and ns2 the other so there is a backup plan if one of the routers goes down.
Better still assuming they are cisco routers use HSRP (or if they are not cisco but they support VRRP), make each router a standyby for the other to offer some resilience in the event of router failure.

Hope the Flu clears up soon.

Dean, looks like the nameservers are down.

My website is also down and the 500servers.com website appears down, well by down I mean they arent resolving to the IP address.

Maybe it would like a block of cheese

no, seriously. Try cracking the case open and see if you can isolate exactly where the noise is coming from. Maybe a gear or "bearing" is fouling up and making the noise.

get hold of some molybdenum grease or similar and make sure everything has enough lubrication.

either that or wear headphone like i do, can't hear my gfx cards fans when gaming so i doubt you'd hear a squeaky wheel

Quote from cargame.nl :Right... So I cannot reach 213.40.20.2 but 213.40.20.4 is no problem at all.

Must be on my end then yes. Logical.

I'm not going to "teach grandma to suck eggs", but just because those two addresses are virtually next to each other doesnt mean that they are co-located, connected to the same subnet or are even "real" hosts.
they could be virtual IP's which are then farmed out / redirected to any number of internal servers. Not knowing the LFS infrastructure I cant comment. But 10+ years in data networking has taught me never to assume and never to be stuborn; someone may know some information you dont have access to.

I've exhausted my suggestions, so good luck with getting to the bottom of it!

@nl2dav
yes I managed to get on the forum earlier although there was a massive delay before the page appeared: hence I ended up here following your post. I havent been able to get onto the forum since.

@blunder
It is quite normal for hops not to respond to the ICMP requests (as nl2dav said to prevent hack, DoS attacks, exploits etc)

The traceroute software I am using isnt the standard basic OS provided version, it is a professional commercial version which uses "other" methods over and above the basic ICMP methods.

@nl2dav
the fact that my trace seems to stop in london suggests that there could be a peering issue, (maybe a BGP issue) between higher tiered providers. The servers are hosted in france?
I'm not tracing into any french nodes.
I still think it is more likely to be an internet/network issue (see enough of them at work everyday!)

Quote from cargame.nl :So, yes.. Clearly a block on purpose.

Hmm, ok

the routeing seems to be working, but I wouldnt rule out network issues.
As you can see I am having issues reaching you from the UK, so your replies from the master servers could be getting lost too.

just because your packets can get to LFS servers doesn't mean that they can get reply to you! Or rather, RELIABLY reply to you.

I'm in the UK along with the LFS servers and i can trace to the master servers with no issues but not to the cg forum which leads me to believe that the issues are at your end.
Are the CG servers, (LFS, airio and web) on the same subnet in the same datacenter, i.e. do they connect to the internet via the same router or are they on different routers/networks?

what about a trace route?
how close do you get, is it hitting the lfs "subnet" or is the last response several nodes short?

I dont know if it related, but accessing the cargame website is very hit and miss this morning. More miss than hit to be honest.

I'd be inclined to think is was a routing/network issue at your end as the host list on the master servers seems to be populated and it's just the cargame servers which are missing.

you're pinging from a *nix machine, (there isn't a linux dedi host is there?) so i assume that is the webserver not the game server. is the result the same from dedicated host?

Sorry to be obvious, but have you tried a reboot of server and router platforms, if its a hosted router have you escalated to the provided to ensure it isnt a network issue?

Quote from imteme :
So what happened just 10min ago O.o?

you just said you had a lightening strike!
i'd say 1.21 jiggawatts though you computer has corrupted some data.

I'd run checkdisk or scandisk (cant remember what its called these days) as soon as possible to ensure the windows install isnt full of corrupt files

Do what son???
I'm confused as to what you are actually asking:

"PSP", do you actually mean PHP, or do you mean PlayStation Portable?

"open a server", do you mean join a server? If you want html code to be able to join an LFS server here is a link to join cargame.nl S2 (as an example)

lfs://join=cargame.nl%20S2

I think that's what you were asking.

Quote from Bean0 :That would be an Acorn, not an Apple.

No, Acorn was the electron,
the BBC was a BBC (model A or model B).

On topic: sad to see a fellow human go to the relentless big C, but not one of these apple fanboys who prefer fashion over function.
Overpriced crap for the image conscious with more money than sense.

where is the "whats the point" option in the poll.

If you want to listen to the radio, either
A. Turn on an actual radio
B. open your favourite internet radio software prior to opening LFS.

Why does every cruiser want to derail LFS development and turn it into Grand Theft Auto, Need for Speed or some other non racing game?
