04:30<Ammler>good morning
04:31<Ammler>nightly server down?
04:32<@Bjarni>looks like it
04:32<@Bjarni>the wiki is down too
04:32<@Bjarni>and I can't fix it from here
04:38<FR^2>:( I want the nightly and I want it _now_!!!111 (just kidding...)

04:42*FR^2 is suddenly very quiet.
04:43<@Bjarni>I didn't tell you not to talk :/
04:43<Ammler>hmm :-)
04:43<@Bjarni>feel free to talk as long as you pay your $0.01/line fee
04:44-!-Sir-Bob [] has joined #openttd
04:44<Ammler>he, is der a country called "Niegerlande" (german)?
04:46<@Bjarni>isn't that Niger?
04:46<@Bjarni>(which is in Africa)
04:47<FR^2>Bjarni: Expensive.
04:48<@Bjarni>according to wikipedia Niger in in German is called... Niger
04:48<@Bjarni> <-- I still think it's this one
04:49<Alberth>looks like 'niederlande' to me, ie The Netherlands or Holland
04:50<Gekz>Ammler: Nigeria
04:50<Gekz>Nigeria != Niger
04:51<@Bjarni> <-- same list in English
04:51<@Bjarni>it says The Netherlands o_O
04:52<Gekz>Well thats a fail
04:52<Gekz>Ammler: you spelt it wrong
04:52<Gekz>as Alberth said
04:52<@peter1138>Amazing how the Chinese have so many golds...
04:53<Gekz>peter1138: they're the host nation meaning more of their poor, cheating athletes can participate
04:53<Gekz>because they cant ship them all to other olympics
04:53<@Bjarni>first of all they have more than a billion people to pick from
04:54<@Bjarni>and the state really wants to win
04:54-!-Purno [] has quit [Read error: Connection reset by peer]
04:54<Gekz>It's just another Nazi Olympics
04:59<@Bjarni>I'm not sure any Olympic were completely honest and fair after they introduced possible financial gains in them
05:00<Gekz>I'd have to say the Sydney and Athens Olympics were pretty fair
05:00<Gekz>some of those guys got tested for drugs 3 times a day
05:02<@Bjarni>I don't care for sports events
05:02<@Bjarni>they are never fair
05:02<Gekz>how so
05:02<@Bjarni>the thing I care most for about the Olympics is that it shouldn't come here
05:03<@Bjarni><Gekz> how so <-- well it's always up to some judge to figure out who won
05:04<@Bjarni>and whatever they rule somebody can always find a mistake in the ruling
05:04<Gekz>not in all events
05:06<@Bjarni>like they said on the news (btw why is the general news about the Olympics and not stuff like "the railroad broke and stranded a whole lot of people during rushhour?) that some wrestler was nearly getting gold and then he got some ruling that he was too idle
05:06<@Bjarni>so he lost based on this and the guy who won on this ended up getting gold
05:07<FauxFaux>For most sports they're competing on a set of completely arbitary rules.
05:07<FauxFaux>Ignoring cycling (go England!) and sailing (go England!) and running (aw crap) etc. here.
05:07<Gekz>Bjarni: that's not what I was talking about
05:07<Gekz>I'm talking simple races and the like
05:08<Ammler>sadly Netherlands got us again :-)
05:08-!-Tekky [] has joined #openttd
05:08<@Bjarni>I can tell about a race that wasn't fair
05:09<Tekky>hi, is also down with everyone else or only with me?
05:10<ln>Ammler: can you speak on everyone's behalf?
05:10<Ammler>ln: yes, I did :P
05:10-!-welshdragon [] has joined #openttd
05:10-!-Vikthor [] has joined #openttd
05:10<Ammler>ln: I am happy, if you could prove the opposite :-)
05:11<@Bjarni>there is a race every year for sailing ships and the route is around an island. One year not so long ago there was a storm that moved them southwards to begin with (the right direction). When the first 4 ships made the turn to go west, the wind changed and blew west. Everybody else now had to battle a storm from the side. When the first 4 had to turn north, the wind changed again and blew them north. The rest (around 100 ships) we
05:11<@Bjarni>re still trapped trying to get south and since it was now directly against the storm they had to give up
05:11*Vikthor greets channel after his return from Germany
05:12<FR^2>Vikthor: hiho
05:12<FR^2>Bjarni: Hehe
05:12<@Bjarni>the speed record was improved a whole lot and it's estimated that it will never be beaten again
05:12<@Bjarni>in this case the part that made it unfair was the wind
05:13<Ammler>Bjarni: that wasn't "unfair"
05:14<Ammler>the weather is something elementary for such competitions.
05:14<@Bjarni>I know
05:14<Ammler>(for most outside things...
05:14<FauxFaux>Having world records for sailing is a little silly.
05:15<Tekky>Does anyone know why the OpenTTD wiki is down and how long it will be down? Is it now moving server due to the successful fundraiser?
05:15<@Bjarni><Ammler> Bjarni: that wasn't "unfair" <-- I think so even if it wasn't a human who made it unfair
05:16<Ammler>don't think, it is down, because of that, "they" should be able to handle that without downtime...
05:16<Alberth>Tekky: The server is down because it is not up. It will be up when you can reach it again.
05:17<Alberth>Can somebody plz change the subject of the channel? :P
05:17-!-Bjarni changed the topic of #openttd to: 0.6.2 | Website: * (Translator: translator2, Gameservers: servers, Nightly-builds: nightly, WIKI: wiki, Dev-docs: docs, Patches & Bug-reports: bugs, Revision log: vcs) | #openttd.notice for FS + SVN notices | UTF-8 please | No unauthorised bots | We Love the developers
05:17<Tekky>I like the subject of this channel. :-) Don't you love YAPP, too?
05:18<@Bjarni>Alberth: that request was pointless as you didn't tell what you wanted the topic to say instead :p
05:19<Ammler>Bjarni: who is "We"?

05:19<@Bjarni>Ammler: my people
05:19<@Bjarni>(that would be you)
05:20<Alberth>Bjarni: I trust you to mention all the most important items there :P
05:21<FauxFaux>How understandable is the YAPP code? I'm tempted to go look at one of those presignals things, but I fear for my sanity.
05:22<@Bjarni>I will give the disclaimer that nobody in here will ensure your sanity
05:22<@Bjarni>but feel free to check out the source and take a look
05:22<FauxFaux>It has .cpp extensions, that has to be a good sign.
05:23-!-DJNekkid [] has joined #openttd
05:23<@Bjarni>we have a .cpp file containing inline ASM :P
05:23<@Bjarni>it's fairly simple though
05:23<@Bjarni>and you don't need to mess with it
05:24<FauxFaux>I'll complain about that in a minute, brb. :P
05:25*Bjarni wrote the PPC part and later realised it looks like a copy paste from the PPC manual
05:25<@Bjarni>took me ages to figure out PPC ASM >_<
05:26<@Bjarni>oh well... it's working

05:55<@Rubidium>he can't
05:56<@Rubidium>as it isn't one of "our" servers
05:56<Ammler>yet :-)
05:56<@Rubidium>and this is also one of the reasons we wanted a new server
05:57<Yorick>what's broken?
05:58<Eddi|zuHause>so, where's mihamix?

05:59-!-Nite_Owl [] has joined #openttd
06:00<Eddi|zuHause>that's probably going to help ;)
06:00<Ammler>omg, that was a "private" server...
06:00<Ammler>well, it worked nice for that.
06:00<@Rubidium>Ammler: if "private" means "not of a company" then yes
06:00<Eddi|zuHause>Ammler: no, it's at a university
06:01<Nite_Owl>Is the nightly download link broken or is it just me?
06:01<Eddi|zuHause>it's just you, i can assure you ;)

06:32<ychaouche>If I build a cargo depot close to a train station, is it gonna accept what the train comes with ? like coal, wood... ? because I want it to be carried by truck to a near place that is not reachable by train
06:32<ychaouche>I tried it but the trucks wont load anything
06:33<blathijs>ychaouche: If you set the train to "unload" at that station, it will
06:33<blathijs>ychaouche: But you will have to build the truck stop and the station close together, they should both get the same name (if they both get different signs with names above them, they're too far apart)
06:34<ychaouche>Ok, so "unload" order to be placed on the truck to get what's in the train station, and "load" to bring something to be carried by train, is that correct ?
06:36<Eddi|zuHause>ychaouche: you must place the truck stop exactly next to the train station, so they share a station sign
06:37<blathijs>ychaouche: No, the other way around
06:38<blathijs>ychaouche: The train must unload at the station, and the truck must load (though you can leave out the load, adding a "load" flag to an order means "don't leave until you're fully loaded"_

06:42<ychaouche>Ok I'll try that
06:42<ychaouche>another question relating to train stations
06:42<ychaouche>when you build one with say a width of 2
06:42<ychaouche>how do you extend it ?
06:43<@peter1138>Just build.
06:43<ychaouche>like when you want to add a wagon
06:43<ychaouche>build another station next to it
06:43<@peter1138>It will expand it.
06:44<ychaouche>oh cool
06:44<Eddi|zuHause>you can add tiles to it, as long as you place them right next to it
06:44<ychaouche>Ok, coders who did that are pros

06:47<FauxFaux>On a related note, there's no way to split a large station into two station entities, right? (ie. seperate destinations / cargos)
06:48<@peter1138>Not an existing large station, no.
06:49<@peter1138>You can of course build it as two adjacent stations.
06:49<Eddi|zuHause>you can remove part of the station, and can build a new one with ctrl+click

06:52<@peter1138>If I knew what an 'aeronef' was...
06:54<Prof_Frink>peter1138: Like a nef, but aero
06:55<Eddi|zuHause>(but i still don't understand that catenary pylon between the road bridge and the bus station... (in front of the power station)
06:58<FR^2>Is there any way to make sure a city will accept goods in the future? I often create a nice chain with a station in/near a city as endpoint, but then the city sometimes changes acceptance
06:58<Eddi|zuHause>argh... i know why i did not play on with that game... :p
06:58<Eddi|zuHause>FR^2: make sure the station is near the town center and the city is big enough
07:03<ychaouche>Eddi|zuHause: your version is very neat. How much before getting this big ?!! (popultion > 10.000)
07:03<Eddi|zuHause>i mean, a city like the one in the picture won't ever stop accepting goods
07:03<ychaouche>peter1138: Sorry, airplains.
07:03<ychaouche>I guess aeronefs is french only
07:04<Eddi|zuHause>ychaouche: that's not even my biggest city
07:04<ychaouche>ok how big is you biggest ?

10:14<dragonhorseboy>sorry didn't noticed you were asking me peter... to put it short: moving from 0.5.3 to anything newer seem to not even use the provided cfg file at all for no reason (meaning: no custom settings applied) ... never can figure out whats even with that [and for a test I got 0.4.7 and it saw the ex-053 cfg just fine]
10:15<@peter1138>Anything newer uses the config in your home directory.
10:16<dragonhorseboy>home directory? thats the openttd folder .. which is why I just don't understand this

10:20<+glx>where is your openttd.cfg?
10:22<dragonhorseboy>glx...the one for 053 was in the openttd folder as always had been for several updates (I can't remember the first openttd version I used.. probably like 041-something?)
10:22<+glx><@peter1138> Anything newer uses the config in your home directory. <-- unless it finds an openttd.cfg in bin dir
10:22<+glx>dragonhorseboy: what settings are not applied?
10:23<dragonhorseboy>glx...just about anything thats not original as far as I could tell when comparing 053 and 061 while both were running (especially in train-wait-at-signal being noticeable)
10:23<+glx>what value?
10:26<@peter1138>Anyway, only server owners edit the config by hand. Everyone else does the configuration in game...

15:01<CelestarT42p>how's everyone?
15:01<@Bjarni>@seen everyone
15:01<@DorpsGek>Bjarni: everyone was last seen in #openttd 29 weeks, 2 days, 0 hours, 9 minutes, and 10 seconds ago: * Everyone has aids
15:01<@Bjarni>looks bad
15:02*CelestarT42p pokes Bjarni
15:02<@Bjarni>you have AIDS too?
15:02<@peter1138>Hi CelestarT42p.
15:02<FauxFaux>Everyone has aids.

15:04<CelestarT42p>peter1138: I'm just playtesting cargodest (=
15:05<@peter1138>Me too. I fixed a refit bug.
15:07<Eddi|zuHause>CelestarT42p: multistop for drive through stops needs a lookahead for the next station
15:07<Eddi|zuHause>it's vital since you can't leave out the order because of cargodest
15:08<Yorick>there is currently no multistop for drive through stops
15:09<frosch123>Yorick: but eddi pointed out a second issue, that seems to be a lot harder solvable than the first one
15:09<Eddi|zuHause>Yorick: CelestarT42p said he wanted to tackle that problem, so i give my input about what i think might be needed
15:10<Yorick>ok :)

15:30<@Bjarni>but they have yet to get the right one :P
15:32<+glx>I just needed to use a kanji to romaji converter to understand it

15:34<@Bjarni>a translator that fails this one is kind of worthless

15:34<+glx>indeed they should yes
15:34<@peter1138>We can no longer blame Bjarni when autoreplace breaks, can we?
15:35<hylje>how so

15:36<Ammler>frosch123: rev?
15:36<@Bjarni>glx: I know but it's such a common spelling error that it's in the dictionary
15:37<@Bjarni>but writing it correctly in either kana or kanji didn't help the translators >_<
15:37<frosch123>r14083 - r14085 and some more clean-ups
15:38<Ammler>maybe you disconnected the nightly, so nobody can test it P

15:38<frosch123>I guess yesterday's nightly was available yesterday
15:38<+glx>Bjarni: but google gives a better translation (still not right) with the correct spelling
15:39<+glx>at least the global sense of the sentence is there ;)
15:39<@Bjarni>but that's not good enough
15:39<@Bjarni>it's still somewhat fucked
15:40<@Rubidium>not to mention that today's nightly is more or less succesful too
15:40<+glx>it's funny with "sama"
15:41<@Bjarni>now that's really fucked up

15:47<Eddi|zuHause>peter1138: did you consider railtypes with speed limit?
15:48<hylje>what attributes a rail segment may have
15:48<hylje>gauge, speed limit..
15:49<Eddi|zuHause>i'm sure people will soon complain about adding support for even more railtypes afterwards ;)
15:49*Bjarni decreases the trust estimation of google translate from "untrustworthy" to "worthless toy only useful for a laugh"
15:49<@peter1138>Eddi|zuHause, of course :)
15:49<@peter1138>But gauge is not relevant.
15:50<hylje>what attributes are?

16:14<Yorick>Eddi: "order's"

16:16<Prof_Frink>Eddi|zuHause: I think you're right.
16:16<@Rubidium>or however one would write pos+es+ion

16:16<Sacro>hmm, doesn't look right

16:18<@peter1138>"its" is possession.
16:18<@Rubidium>should I say "Sacro beer is stolen by Prof_Frink" or "Sacro's beer is stolen by Prof_Frink"?
16:19<Sacro>Rubidium: i don't drink :p
16:19<Prof_Frink>Rubidium: Sacro is a freak
16:19<@Rubidium>if I was abusing apostrophes the former should be grammatically right
16:19<Prof_Frink>Rubidium: No, the abuse was "order's" rather than "orders'"
16:20<ln>oh, we're talking about apostrophes
16:21<@Rubidium>Prof_Frink: also if I mean the vehicle list management of a shared order?
16:21<Prof_Frink>Rubidium: I give up. Sacro's wrong. He also lost the game.
16:22<ln>Let me suggest that "order's" looks strange to Sacro because the 's genitive is usually used for people and other living things.
16:23<Roujin>that remembers me of a funny sentence I've read somewhere..

16:42<Eddi|zuHause>i assume it's number of hops currently

16:51-!-[com]buster [] has joined #openttd
16:51<Roujin>or as in shortest path of an unweighted graph

16:52<Prof_Frink>12 tonnes!
16:54<CelestarT42p>Roujin: Manhattan * vehicle_type_weight
16:55<Roujin>ah, thanks! that's probably doing quite well..
16:56<Roujin>and I suppose it's going all-or-nothing, meaning all packets will take the best path (calculated with that measure)
16:56<CelestarT42p>where the type_weight is currenty 1,2,3,4 for air, rail, road, ship
16:57<CelestarT42p>Roujin: correct

16:58<Roujin>that's always good :)
16:59<Eddi|zuHause>Roujin: there are two separate problems: a) defining a better weight calculation (that should be pretty easy, and probably adjustable like yapf penalties), b) allowing people to choose (randomly?) by the optimal or some slightly less optimal routes
17:00<CelestarT42p>Eddi|zuHause: a) isn't easy.

17:28<Eddi|zuHause>engl... oh, right...
17:29<ln>that was to indicate the origins of Pendolino
17:30<Eddi|zuHause>Lakie: the problem is, that TGP generates too realistic landscapes, that practically cry for diagonal bridges and tunnels...
17:30<Lakie>I've heard arguements for them before.
17:31<Lakie>Mainly with the patch though, in which cause it comes down to too much work for too little gain, not idea what the OpenTTD dev's stances are though
17:31<Eddi|zuHause>there are practically no situations where you can reasonably place straight bridges/tunnels
17:32<Eddi|zuHause>OTTD goes the mathmatics way... "we do that fully flexible, so diagonal will only be a tiny special case" ;)

17:39<Roujin>heh alright, here comes peter "oh-i-have-a-patch-for-that" 1138 :D
17:39<Eddi|zuHause>i'm getting 404 on that last one
17:39<Prof_Frink>Eddi|zuHause: spaces in URL
17:39<Prof_Frink>copypate it.
17:39<Eddi|zuHause>no, i copypasted it with the spaces
17:39<+glx>Roujin: in that case he doesn't have the patch ;)
17:39<ln>peter1138: URLs can't have spaces
17:39<Prof_Frink>ln: They work fine here
17:40<Eddi|zuHause>Roujin: that was smatz's patch
17:40<@peter1138>Try telling Firefox that...
17:40<+glx>here too, I just needed to copy/paste the url

17:45<ln> Characters that are allowed in a URI but do not have a reserved

17:45<ln> letters, decimal digits, hyphen, period, underscore, and tilde.
17:45<ln> unreserved = ALPHA / DIGIT / "-" / "." / "_" / "~"
17:46<@peter1138>ln, tell that to the Firefox developers, not me.

17:47<Prof_Frink>That too.
17:47<Lakie>Spaces are allowed
17:47<@peter1138>I copied it from the URL 'bar' in Firefox.

17:48<TinoDidriksen>Strictly, whitespace is not in the allowed plain characters for a URI.
17:48<Lakie>I've done it many times, ln.
17:48<Lakie>Both with firefox, opera, ie etc
17:48<ln>Lakie: what the hell does that have to do with what is allowed?
17:48<Lakie>It is used quite a lot
17:48<Lakie>Obviously it is allowed otherwise it should be filtered?

17:49<CelestarT42p>I think "repeater operation" in my WLAN AP means that you need to reconnect repeatedly
17:50<TinoDidriksen>How browsers act and what the RFC says is not always the same.
17:50<Prof_Frink>TinoDidriksen: Hey, they conform to the RFC when talking to the server
17:51<Prof_Frink>AFAIK there's no RFC on what the browser should tell the human it's up to.
17:51<TinoDidriksen>No, but it'd make most sense if the copy operation would place a valid URI in the buffer.
17:51-!-xyz [] has left #openttd []
17:52<Prof_Frink>No, just a valid input.
17:52<Eddi|zuHause>ln: the section you quoted does not say that spaces are forbidden
17:53*CelestarT42p wonders what the most powerful train engine is (permanent output)
17:53<TinoDidriksen>Spaces are not in the allowed list, hence they have to be encoded.
17:54<+glx>IE converts them
17:54<CelestarT42p>konqueror does as well
17:54<Eddi|zuHause>but that was not an "allowed" list... only a "you can expect that these work unconditionally" list
17:55<ln>here's the whole thing, feel free to point out where spaces are allowed:
17:55<+glx>firefox just use a human readable url
17:56<Prof_Frink>*Bing bong* The train now leaving platform 3 is the topic.
17:56<Prof_Frink>Aren't we supposed to be on that?
17:56<Eddi|zuHause>no, the topic says offline...
17:57<ln>and dear people, please do remember the difference: even if browsers accept URLs with spaces either typed in or pasted, that does not mean such URLs are valid and should be used.
17:57<+glx>the browser converts it to a valid one internally
17:57<+glx>that's enough for me
17:58<ln>modern browsers also allow non-ASCII letters in the URL, yet that doesn't mean such URLs are valid without the percent-notation.
17:58<Prof_Frink>We never said they were valid URLs.
17:58<Prof_Frink>Merely valid browser inputs.
17:59<ln>no, you didn't, but pasting such to IRC is silly, because space is the default delimiter for an URL, as far as clicking an URL is concerned.
18:00<+glx>that's right, I needed to copy paste instead click
18:01<ln>situation would be different if URLs were always enclosed within <> or some other delimiter on IRC, then those could be used for detecting the end instead of spaces.
18:01-!-rortom [] has joined #openttd
18:01<ln>though then some bonehead would use URLs with < > in them, because they are valid input for browsers. :)
18:02<+glx>we should use [url][/url] as delimiter ;)

18:33<Brianetta>If the topic was paint colours, my wife holds the opinions.
18:33<Brianetta>I took a CD's worth of video on the meet.
18:33<Brianetta>This is silly
18:33<Brianetta>Silly squared
18:33<Eddi|zuHause>and i don't find the place where the cargo payment calculation differentiates about whether the destination is reached or not...
18:34*CelestarT42p loves the fact that most WLAN APs/Routers that support 300MBPs on air still have 100BaseT ports :S
18:34<SpComb>do the ones with gbit switches have a gbit link between the switch and the cpu?
18:34<@orudge>heh, I was thinking about that the other day, Celestar
18:34<@orudge>whether 802.11n kit would actually have gigabit Ethernet
18:34<CelestarT42p>orudge: most don't
18:35<SpComb>and is the cpu capable of shifting 300mbps of full-duplex traffic between the wlan and the switch?
18:35<CelestarT42p>*VERY* helpful
18:35<Brianetta>SpComb: The bus probably isn't
18:35<CelestarT42p>orudge: I wonder what they expect the AP to *do* with the 300MBit it is getting
18:35*dragonhorseboy is still trying to figure out a damned router for my new place (like you'll thought there was "anything you need you can find it", go figure)
18:36<Brianetta>Not many workstations could saturate a 100baseT network.
18:36<Brianetta>That's what still sets mainframes apart.
18:36<SpComb>a workstation can saturate a gbit link just fine
18:36<CelestarT42p>Brianetta: well. At work I can saturate a 1000BaseT
18:36<SpComb>normal x86 hardware can do a 10gbit link
18:36<Eddi|zuHause>CelestarT42p: it's not much different than having Gbit ethernet cards on the PCI bus...
18:37<Eddi|zuHause>where the PCI bus is slower than the network...
18:37<CelestarT42p>Eddi|zuHause: not *quite*, as the PCI bus has 1.08Gbits (gross)
18:37<SpComb>indeed, that's a bit of a silly thing
18:37<SpComb>esp. motherboards with dual gbit NICs... on PCI
18:37<CelestarT42p>and there are faster PCIs

18:40<Eddi|zuHause>we are far beyond that topic already...
18:41<SpComb>Brianetta: RAID10 = RAID1 of two RAID0 arrays
18:42<SpComb>so both redundancy and performance for twice the price
18:43<ln>how many tiles away can artillery fire?
18:43<SpComb>but myes, better than running a multi-disk software RAID over a PCI bus
18:43<CelestarT42p>SpComb: softward RAID is better than its reputation imho
18:43<SpComb>ln: how far is the competitor's station?
18:43<SpComb>CelestarT42p: indeed, and I love it
18:44<CelestarT42p>SpComb: you know ZFS?
18:44<Eddi|zuHause>i have a RAID0/1 controller onboard, but i don't use it as such...
18:44<SpComb>but if you have a RAID1 then you still need to shift twice the amount of data from the CPU to the disks than with hardware raid
18:44<ln>Eddi|zuHause: not a real one, is it?
18:44<SpComb>CelestarT42p: in theory, but I just use ext3+lvm+md
18:45<Eddi|zuHause>ln: what do you mean with "real"?
18:45<ln>Eddi|zuHause: does it require drivers?
18:45<CelestarT42p>SpComb: I've tested it, it's awesome (especially on an Sun Fire X4500 :))
18:45<Eddi|zuHause>linux does load a "promise" module...
18:46<Eddi|zuHause>if that qualifies as a "driver"...
18:46<ln>as far as i understand, a real RAID controller does not require any driver to do its job.
18:46<Tekky>does OpenTTD store a vehicle's speed in mph or km/h internally?
18:46-!-bleepy [] has quit [Ping timeout: 480 seconds]
18:46<@Rubidium>Tekky: neither
18:46<CelestarT42p>ln: a reail RAID controller does not require any driver for accessing the disk. It still requires drivers for accessing the array (building/repairing/monitoring)
18:47<CelestarT42p>Tekky: fathoms per fortnight or something :P
18:47<@Rubidium>wasn't it furlong per fortnight?
18:47<Eddi|zuHause>ln: after the boot/post screen, there is the raid screen, where i can enter the raid controller's setup
18:48<Eddi|zuHause>there i can add drives connected to the SATA (or the 3rd PATA) connectors, as single, raid0 or raid1 array
18:48<Eddi|zuHause>then comes the boot manager
18:48<CelestarT42p>Brianetta: I'm just reading through your desync report. the game did WHAT with the orders?
18:49<Tekky>Rubidium: thx
18:49<Brianetta>Celestar: Any orders pertaining to the waypoints vanished.
18:50<CelestarT42p>Rubidium: what do you make of that? buffer overflow somewhere?
18:50<Eddi|zuHause>ln: so does that qualify as a "real" controller?
18:50<CelestarT42p>Brianetta: pertaining to any waypoint or only a specific one?

18:51<Brianetta>Which desync report are you reading?
18:51<ln>Eddi|zuHause: well, hmm, it depends on whether it requires the promise module or not. i've understood the integrated ones virtually always need help from the OS, but i'd be glad to be wrong.
18:51<CelestarT42p>the one in the Ottddev forum
18:51<Brianetta>Oh, that one didn't do anything to orders
18:52<Brianetta>I'd better read what I posted
18:52<@Rubidium>CelestarT42p: IF I knew what it was it would've been solved
18:52<Brianetta>Ah, yeah; that third post is about a different desync problem
18:53<Brianetta>There are two that we know of
18:53<Tekky>hehe, I just found an error in the OpenTTD wiki :-) Luckily, I can still browse the OpenTTD wiki in the Google cache :)
18:53<@Rubidium>but I fear it's some newgrf cache issue somewhere
18:54<@Rubidium>and I got no clue how to hunt for buffer overflows beyond what valgrind/efence/duma can detect
18:54<Tekky>unfortunately, I cannot correct the error in the OpenTTD wiki through the Google cache :(
18:54<@Rubidium>what's wrong?
18:54<CelestarT42p>Rubidium: valgrind is good, but on our local games we can only test so much. I wonder whether Brianetta should run his servers in efence ;)
18:54<CelestarT42p>Rubidium: there's a difference between us testing something and a "production" server
18:55<ln>Eddi|zuHause: also it's been said that if a driver is required, then (on Linux) one can equally well use Linux software RAID, because software is required anyhow. but dunno, i don't have much RAID experience on non-software RAIDs.
18:55<Brianetta>Celestar: I'm working on a reproducible desync.
18:55<CelestarT42p>ln: I have, but only with *real* controllers
18:55<Brianetta>It can be done, I'm certain.
18:55<Eddi|zuHause>ln: like i said, i don't use it as RAID
18:56<@Rubidium>CelestarT42p: I've never seen a real buffer overflow as cause of a desync
18:56<CelestarT42p>(i.e. PCIe or PCI-X stuff)
18:56<@Rubidium>it's always way more subtle/hidden
18:56<CelestarT42p>Rubidium: maybe this is first? ;-)
18:56<CelestarT42p>Rubidium: but what would cause a renaming of a waypoint?
18:56<CelestarT42p>Rubidium: and the removal of said waypoint from the order list
