Quote from CodeLyoko1 :Scawen, why remove my comment, it was a normal comment saying that this is a racing sim not a cruise sim. Is it not true, that you deleted it or is it something else that makes you delete it?

It has been deleted because comments like that one are detriment to LFS. Yes, LFS is primarily a racing simulator, but the beauty is that you can also use it for other purposes. The physics have been made so that they work all-round. Why would we want people not use LFS in other ways, especially if those people are not in anyone's way?
Your comment excludes those people, makes them not feel welcome -> brings negativity -> annoys people -> makes people not want to come back. So while you may think you are helping, you are actually doing the opposite.

ah, sorry about that. It's working again now.

not gonna claim I understand all this, but interesting read : http://www.agner.org/optimize/microarchitecture.pdf

I doubt branch prediction works on multiple physical cores though, where branches would spread onto different cores. I'll bet it's more like a feature each core has to optimise code execution.

I don't think it's our server / connection.
If I ping the monitoring servers of that site from my end, there's no loss at all.
http://tools.pingdom.com/ping/ (used by isp's to keep an eye on networks) also shows no loss.
Anyway, it's a nice tool - it still gives apparently correct latency values, which is nice to know.

You might want to use this website

http://cloudmonitor.ca.com/en/ping.php

Makes a ping to the desired IP from 90 different locations.

Quite helpfull

nice! A bit odd that it displays 60-80% packet loss for just about all locations though. Pretty sure that's not actually the case.
When using IPv6 it reports no lost packets though (you can try with mail.lfs.net).

Hm yes that's a big difference. But on the MIN list, the difference between your XP and Win7 results is minimal.
Don't have an explanation - just noticed it

I have updated the LFS Benchmark site with the new version 0.6F and have added some hardware for those of us with new systems.

The replay and min/max cfg.txt files are still the same as with previous version.
It may be interesting to see if there's a performance difference between 0.6F with DirectX 9 vs the older versions of LFS with DirectX 8.

thanks for the report.
I did notice some weirdness and something has happened about two hours ago. Doing some research.
In the meantime services should be back up and running again.

Quote from THE WIZARD DK :is that what lfs has gone to be? a stupid moderating job and noobs trolling...

because thats how it looks to me.

some 15-20 people controlling everything in lfs...awesome..

i hope devs seriously consider their aim to those people..

trolls and moderators deleting everything they see can harm or damage themselves and lets others troll and do whatever they see fit to annoy and make lfs a bad experience..this is what you can expect with this forums...

i guess thats what s3 will be... loosers and trolls... stupid moderators...

waste of time...

waste of money...

I don't know what got into you, but something must have snapped lately. And it cannot be Flame's "nick stealing". Or well, it could be I guess, but mate, you need to calm down and compare your problem in this instance with people with real problems. Then realise your problem really is no problem at all.

Raging like you do lately will not help you. In fact, raging [on the internet] always makes things worse for you. You've been around a while - you should know by now.

So I've closed this thread. Not because I'm invoking a police state, but because rage threads lead to nowhere. I couldn't even understand 75% of what you were talking about. It's just rage without substance.

Go outside, enjoy the wheather, breathe in the fresh air, realise life ain't that bad if you think about it.

a brew of my own
will be way easier to make changes and add more integration with LFS specific features.
Victor
Developer
I think it's how it's supposed to be, but yeah it's debatable.
In any case, I hope you don't mind me not looking into it.
a) I don't really feel like modding vBulletin for this because:
b) pretty soon we'll not be using vBulletin anymore, so trying to fix this would be a waste of time imo.

No worries.

Pubstat is a means to programmatically retrieve stats from lfs world.
It's all explained in the first post of this thread https://www.lfsforum.net/showthread.php?t=14480
It can be useful for people to collect and show statistics on their own website for example.
You or your team must have been using some application that collected stats, until November when apparently you stopped using the application.
Victor
Developer
/w pb is an in-game command and has nothing to do with pubstats.
Victor
Developer
I can see lots of stats recorded for people since november and I can see my own pubstat usage from yesterday when i had to fix a bug. So I assume stats are being recorded and displayed as usual, but I can confirm stats for Yisc[NL] stopped after November 2013.
Which account are the ident keys assigned to?
Maybe you're really using ident keys from someone else?

Thanks for the report.
I've applied a patch to mediawiki. Seems to be ok again.
If you encounter an empty page still, try editing and saving it (without actually editing it).

Many thanks for taking the time to inform us of this oversight.

I have adjusted one of the main culprits (the forum linking to the wrong page) and will have a look at your other notes very soon.
Victor
Developer
slightly odd because I hadn't looked into it yet :P
Victor
Developer
It seems it's due to an outdated manifest for the java file. Need to look into that.

Moved to main Programming forum, because your post isn't a library.

yeah thanks for the free hotel services Jason. They were so good that I slept way too long and almost everyone was gone when Bob came to wake me up

Was a very good weekend again. Hope we can continue this annual get-together for a long time.
Victor
Developer
sorry, it's running again, processing the backlog which I see is kinda large, as someone has uploaded a whole bunch of hotlaps. But it'll be done processing soon enough.

Quote from jasonmatthews :I don't think we are. The people in confirmed list I expect to come, so we might have around 25..

So there will be some / more 3 man teams? Because I definitely wouldn't mind that. Being in a two man teams means 2+ hours of karting and I'm not sure I can pull that off!
