Known problems with the new server (in Changelog)
Searching for an opponent from "Specify" is broken. This will be fixed soon.
(This is also a good place to post bugs you find.)
Such as: "Server Error The requested URL cannot be accessed due to a system error on this server." when you hit the home button?
April 2 2007 7:35 PM EDT
the background is all white now and when I move the mouse of community and other links no popups come.
Botcheck images are WAY huge now much slower to load.
not a problem, but, botchecks are 280x126
When I try to do anything involving CB in FireFox including login I get sent to this login page http://carnageblender.com/register/index.tcl?return_url=%2f
I tried restarting firefox and it's up to date....?..?.?
http://184.108.40.206/main.tcl is the new server site
Ok http://220.127.116.11/main.tcl fixed my problem but carnageblender.com points to the login page above.
maybe just battle tech theme?
April 2 2007 8:58 PM EDT
You can't upload a new character picture.
April 2 2007 9:22 PM EDT
Zinc; That happened to me after a cache flush last week. Just blow away your CB cookies (Don't need to get rid of the rest, just CB).
April 2 2007 9:27 PM EDT
When I click on Remove Non-Clan the server goes pretty slow.
character pictures were deleted as well, no one has a char portrait.
April 2 2007 9:52 PM EDT
I have a BA of 161.
April 2 2007 9:53 PM EDT
The missing stat-arrow things are also missing on Ultramodern: Blue
April 2 2007 9:55 PM EDT
Hm, I wonder if Jonathan did a "essential-data-only" dump to optimize turnaround time on the dump/transfer/restore? He probably would have mentioned that, though... Images would be the last thing he would bring over, I imagine?
This thing is fast...used to always have that ooooomph lag each battle, now it is a lot faster. I always thought it was my machine/Firefox, but whatever this new server has going, it's on steroids.
I'm with sutekh on the speed...gonna make burning BA at school much less time consuming :)
April 2 2007 9:58 PM EDT
I don't think so, because our user portraits transferred over no problem.
April 2 2007 10:25 PM EDT
"The missing stat-arrow things are also missing on Ultramodern: Blue" This is a firefox thing, Netscape works just fine here. If that helps
April 2 2007 10:28 PM EDT
I can't "Buy Now" this BoM http://carnageblender.com/gc/view-one.tcl?classified_ad_id=92525 .
The server tells me that the requested URL cannot be found.
fixed missing stat-arrows
on my fightlist, Karn is not in a clan, but hes in MTG2, a clan with a bonus even.
April 2 2007 10:36 PM EDT
History Graph not working:
The requested URL cannot be accessed due to a system error on this server.
AOLserver/4.0.10 on http://www.carnageblender.com/
left side bar refresh didn't work, but once i added someone else to the list, it updated it with him on it alright. So nevermind...
April 2 2007 11:04 PM EDT
Character images are still broken. :\
April 2 2007 11:04 PM EDT
Wait, no, I take that back. I think.
fixed character graphic uploads (and brought the old ones over)
April 2 2007 11:14 PM EDT
Fast fast fast... I can't hit enter fast enough. Joy.
i dont have any char images yet, or do i need to refresh?
nope, never mind, lol, just looked at the wrong char, haha
April 2 2007 11:26 PM EDT
S2 the change in lag jon :)
The "please don't get your knickers in a knot" cache flush message is missing?
April 3 2007 4:12 AM EDT
would be nice.
April 3 2007 5:22 AM EDT
It's showing my 150 million as 150,000.
April 3 2007 5:25 AM EDT
Seriously now; was the snapshot taken before switching over done in a couple of stages?
IE: non active chars done at a different time to active chars?
April 3 2007 5:26 AM EDT
Sorry for spamming; just to say, it's not a problem, just curious.
fixed bot check size (new version of imagemagick wasn't quite compatible with the old one)
April 3 2007 8:12 AM EDT
"When I click on Remove Non-Clan the server goes pretty slow."
Botchecks don't appear to be as 'sharp' as before.
April 3 2007 10:03 AM EDT
A few moments ago something weird happened; while I was fighting, 6 battles happened on the old server, not the new one.
No idea how this happened, as far as I can tell DNS is fine, both on my end and on CB's end.
Another thing, I think the server's clock is 40 seconds ahead of true time.
April 3 2007 10:09 AM EDT
Five fights from you? 'Cuz I'm still fighting and tweaking my strategy and playin' around on the old server.
April 3 2007 10:59 AM EDT
Two periods of server-downage this morning, the second one occurring right as I got a bot check. Bot check was a broken image link, no way of typing in. Server was dead to me for 10-15 minutes, came back to a suspension. Is something going on? I can ping the server fine during the downtimes, but nothing comes up in browser. Is it just something on my end? Meanwhile, I'm out 14K for a bot check miss fee. :\
I took down the old server so there should be no more confusion there. (It does seem like some Java implementations ignore DNS ttl, so I forwarded the appropriate chat port to the new machine with an ssh tunnel.)
"Remove non-clan" slowness is a postgresql regression related to view materialization; I can work around it eventually.
I have two services polling the webserver for downtime every few minutes and neither mailed me about unavailability this morning.
April 3 2007 11:32 AM EDT
OK, I guess it must have been something on my end.
Turns out ubuntu's ntpdate is broken out-of-the-box (in 6.06 LTS which is what the server is running) and I'm not sure how to fix it. But openntpd seems to be working fine now.
April 3 2007 11:51 AM EDT
Ubuntu? I thought I saw a mandrake kernel at work? ;)
April 3 2007 12:03 PM EDT
I did a 'ntpq -c rv carnageblender.com' earlier this morning and apparently that ended up at the old server...
Comparing two versions of a wiki change doesn't seem to work.
i can't see pending applications to my clan
i can't see any changes beeing made using any pull-down menu, i.e. after distribution of exp and clicking on train nothing happens (in fact exp IS trained, but not seeing any changes is somewhat uncomfortable, especially using the forge is impossible when there's no change in the forgelog). maybe a firefox issue ?! (ver. 18.104.22.168)
April 3 2007 5:02 PM EDT
OK, down to some nit-picking... Training is slow for me. But I am thinking it was slow before, and I put 2 and 2 together... Is it slow because I am top MPR, so other adjustments are being made elsewhere to change people's BA accrual rates? That's a total guess. Better yet, it is a total guess I won't have to worry about when Popsicle Man passes my MPR. *smile* Just wondering... Whether I train 1,000 experience per minion or 20,000, training is slow...
is loading the train page slow too, or just actually applying the xp?
April 3 2007 7:30 PM EDT
Applying the experience. Takes around 10 seconds, even still on the new server.
April 3 2007 7:31 PM EDT
I trained on all minions except Joe -- instant.
Trained Evasion on Joe, took 10-15 seconds to apply.
April 3 2007 7:45 PM EDT
Maybe Joe is just a slow learner ?
April 3 2007 7:52 PM EDT
sute, how long does it take to train 1-2 points on your STR or DEX? (on Joe)
April 3 2007 7:54 PM EDT
SNK3R loves G Beee's answer. ;)
April 3 2007 9:04 PM EDT
It's the Evasion. I can learn one point on everything else on Joe and it is instant. All other minions, all at once -- instant. One point of Evasion on Joe, and it takes 15 seconds, consistently. Funky.
It takes awhile for Joe to find the off button and stand still long enough to train more evasion.
Ah, I see. Yeah, Evasion acting that way doesn't surprise me. Unfortunately there's no simple fix for that... I'll try to think of something.
April 3 2007 10:07 PM EDT
While you are fixing stuff, can you change the class on "Recent Name Changes" in Community and "Your Portrait" in Settings to header-font? I think it looks really odd the way it is currently.
I prefer it the way it is now, Mian. :P
April 3 2007 11:28 PM EDT
Jonathan, it's no big, though I am intrigued as to why Evasion would take longer...NightStrike, you have that equation yet? *smile* Now that I know it's the Evasion, it's cool, because *cue G.I. Joe music*, knowing is half the battle.
April 3 2007 11:46 PM EDT
So....Jonathan... Could I possibly get a yes or no on whether or not I should expect triple-hits with an HF at my level? In case you missed my HF thread with all this server stuff? *smile* We've got a lot of good theories on dex, pth, etc...but I still feel like I'm missing the boat...
Great job with the new server, by the way... I can't even imagine the command-line magic you've been pulling off recently...masterful!
"Ah, I see. Yeah, Evasion acting that way doesn't surprise me. Unfortunately there's no simple fix for that... I'll try to think of something."
Dude, if all of my Evasion numbers get trashed because of this, I'm going to be very unhappy..............
Please don't change your equation for it. At least switch to a lookup table or something. No one's going to get to, say, 300 or so, which is a cake walk for a hash table.
yeah, except it's a "reverse hash" where you're mapping a range of keys to a single value...
a tree would be fine for this except, have you ever tried to write real data structures in tcl? *shudder*
I guess for such a small range just a linear search would be ok.
April 4 2007 12:04 AM EDT
Looks like server time vs real time got fixed.
I've never written anything in tcl. I know others who have had moderate success with the sourceforge tcllib project, but I myself have never touched it.
April 6 2007 3:33 PM EDT
Raw Access Log
fixed the remove-non-clan speed.
April 6 2007 11:53 PM EDT
not sure if this is a problem or its just me.
We had a problem processing your entry:
* You cannot afford the listing fee of $427
Please back up using your browser, correct it, and resubmit your entry.
But i have more than 10k in that character? weird..
April 8 2007 2:38 PM EDT
Late bidding isn't resetting the auction timer.
that ended with ebay style bidding Proteus
I think (and could be wrong) that when Jon fixed the bidding system so it was more like ebay that the time extension was done away with.
Like it says on the auction page now, "Your bid will automatically be increased up to the amount you give here. Only you will see what your real maximum bid is."
The bids-extending-auction-duration feature is thus no longer necessary and has been removed.

April 8 2007 2:47 PM EDT
apparently i missed that, thanks.
April 10 2007 5:57 PM EDT
Admin. interface says thread is closed, but users are still able to post. Any possibility this occurred when the server switched over?
doesn't say that to me...
... oh, I thought you meant _this_ thread.
Attacking NoFear results in a server error and locked up fighting.
April 17 2007 1:03 PM EDT
I also have problems attacking NoFear.
Server error, follow by the "I am already in a fight warning".
April 17 2007 1:41 PM EDT
Yep something is definitely whacky with NoFear. Just got the 10 minute penalty for attacking him. :-/
i just fought nofears top char and won, with no errors.
"integer value too large to represent"
April 23 2007 6:01 PM EDT
I went to increase my max bid to the buy now price and got a message basically saying "buy now instead." When I went back to look at the auction, however, it stated I had instead placed a bid of the buy now price.
This is not at all what I intended. I wanted to increase my max bid while keeping my current bid the same. Instead the auction increased my current bid to the buy now price (and did not even give me the item).
I think there might be some error in the increase bid/buy now interaction.
April 23 2007 6:03 PM EDT
"Could not process log for that day"
April 23 2007 6:04 PM EDT
Quick update... I tried selecting the buy now option and it did let me receive the item, so that worked.
It was the auction for the Beleg's gloves.
One quick question, didnt want to make a whole new thread for it, and know its not from the new server, but....
When is AoF going to be combined with Junction, as in fixing it, since its already supposed to be there but its not?
I thought it was only the negative effects of AMF that didn't work...I could try and test it with my JKF, but I'd have to find someone I was barely missing, or barely getting missed by.
April 23 2007 10:49 PM EDT
..post 100 <3..
The link to the 'Changelog' forum appears to be broken. It leads to a server error at this time.
The link to Off-Topic is broken now as well. I suspect that it occurred when I created a new Off-Topic thread, because I got a server error when I posted it. I hope that helps you find the problem, Jon.
Now they both work. Was it time-dependent? I don't know.
April 25 2007 1:04 AM EDT
active threads link doesn't work.
trigun - http://www.carnageblender.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg.tcl?msg_id=0025gv
I don't know if this belongs here, but in the Blackmarket it say I have not voted this week, and when I go to vote it says I have...
Okay, looking back onto it now(via different tab), it registered my vote after saying I had already voted this week... Hmmm maybe I'm trippin...
character images, when will we be able to upload them again?
some history graphs still give server errors when you try viewing them
char images work for me...
Uploadge, not workage, novice.
just uploaded a new one...
Hmmm... Maybe user pics then? I just uploaded a new one...It's not showing yet.
Not sure if its too big. Does the forum scale it down automatically or do I have to do it myself? and if I have to do it myself, what are the dimensions required? I'd appreciate a CM and not another post as this has little to do with 'Known problems with the new server'. Thanks.
new pic shows if you click on the forum pic...often just takes a while to update your cache files...
